ATF Bohemian Pilsner

The ATF Bohemian Pilsner is golden coloured beer with a dense, long-lasting, creamy white head. It has a rich complex maltiness with a firm yet soft and rounded bitterness complemented by the spicy flavour of Saaz hops and an earthy, spicy, floral aroma. The aftertaste is balanced between malt and hops.

Yeast is not included in the kit. If fermenting cold we recommend using Froth Vagabond (Assumed Origin: Budêjovický Budvar).

  • Mangrove Jack's Bohemian Lager yeast or
  • Fermentis SafLager W-34/70 or
  • Lallemand Diamond Lager Yeast

If fermenting warm we recommend using Fermentis SafLager W-34/70 or Mangrove Jack’s Californian Lager.

Fermentis SafLager W-34/70

Sensory testing performed by Fermentis on W-34/70 shows that it is a very robust yeast capable of providing a clean neutral flavour profile across a wide range of fermentation temperatures (12 - 20).  Click here to download the Fermentis iPhone app for more information.

Note on Water Profile

The recommended water profile for this beer is very soft with no more than 7ppm of any mineral. The following water sources have slightly higher concentrations of some minerals than the recommended water profile, however they are still sufficiently soft to produce a soft delicate beer such as the ATF Bohemian Pilsner:

  • Paraparaumu/Raumati/Waikanae/Peka Peka
  • Te Horo
  • Wellington

The beer may be brewed using other water sources, but may not have the same soft delicate mouthfeel and bitterness. Rainwater, reverse osmosis water, or bottled spring water is ideal. 

Selecting the yeast from the dropdown box above will add one packet to your cart. Please click the + symbol beside the amount to increase this to the recommended quantity for the batch size.
