Do you like Pilsner Urquell or Budvar?

This is our version of the style that originated the Pilsner name.  Czech pilsner is a moderately-light bodied beer with golden color.  Imported hops from the Czech Republic and Germany are used for flavor and aroma.  Our "Home Brewdvar" recipe uses a large amount of relatively low-power hops to achieve its highly-hopped flavor, so it's rich in secondary hop characteristics instead of just plain bitterness.  This recipe ferments well at a wide range of fermentation temperatures, thanks to the authentic Czech strain of "Tuborg" pilsner yeast we use.  Good results can be achieved at temperatures between 50 and 74 degrees, so a good comfortable room or basement is all you need.  Czech Pilsner that's warm-fermented will mellow out a lot if you give the bottles some cold lagering time in the refrigerator after they've had a chance to carbonate.
