I brewed my first batch of czech pilsner recently, using WLP802 yeast, fermented at about 53ºF. Maybe I'm jumping the gun and this will go away, but an early taste (1 1/2 weeks after bottling) has an unexpected rich mouthfeel and spicy taste that's more like a saison. Does it just need to be lagered longer, or is this an indication of something that went wrong? It's not a bad flavor, just not the clean crispness I was expecting. This was an all-grain recipe. my mash target temp was right on at 154, everything went according to plan. the only unusual thing about the recipe was that I used pale 2-row rather than pilsner malt. Any ideas? thanks!
