The ATF Kiwi Pilsner has a clean soft malty sweetness with hints of sweet hay balanced by a firm bitterness. Unlike its Bohemian grandparent it showcases the unique qualities of New Zealand hops with aromas of orange citrus and passionfruit up front with tropical fruit, lemon, lime, and stone fruit being a strong supporting act.
Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using two packets of Fermentis Saflager W-34/70 if fermenting cold or one packet if fermenting warm.
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 two packets.
Note on Fermentation Temperature
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.
