    That looks like a good place to start. (because I have to suggest something) maybe think about swapping the amounts of the c120 and victory. idk if raisin plum flavors are in my prototypical brown ale. and the increased victory I'll give it a bit more of a toasty biscuitness to it.

    But, I'm no style fiend and definitely don't know the bjcp guidelines, so brew on!

    Edit: just reread you said grains. Sorry.

    Sorry to knowingly derail the thread, but would you say the hops and yeast choice are the biggest differentiators between geographical styles?

    Like, an English vs american IPA or Brown Ale is more defined by your use of East Kent Goldings or Cascade rather than Maris Otter or American 2 row.

    Belgians are a different beast I think, where the yeast is front and center, and it's a very different beer with a different yeast.

    But, can there be a New Zealand Pilsner? Am I foreseeing a 2016 or 2017 style?

    Side note, I can see Nelson Sauvin being a very fine choice for a Pilsner or similar lager

    you would be correct, yeast and hops are the biggest difference, grain is very close but not as noticeable

    Using their gladfield Pilsner malt and all New Zealand hops. I did a smash with nelson sauvin and personally ain't a big fan of this hop on its own. When paired with a piney citrusy hop is just lovely
