Notes
This is the re-brew of a Pils that placed 3rd in the 2018 NHC first round in San Diego. The goal was something similar to Ayinger's Bavarian Pils. This beer was lucky enough to place 1st in the 2018 NHC Final Round.

Note: the Pils malt used in this recipe is Weyermann Barke Pils. Give it a try.
