Eh...
I'm really not a fan of how this beer turned out. It was the first lager I brewed, and it may have been my lagering process that made this beer almost undrinkable to me. Even after about 5 months of bottle conditioning it still doesn't taste all that great. I won't be brewing this one again.

My first Lager!
This was the very first Lager I have ever made and I was surprised how well it came out. The family enjoyed it and so did my friends. So as a newbe to making a lager, I say to others give it a try!

Great Urquell Clone!!!
I'm not sure what the prior reviewer did wrong, but as that person, this was my first lager and it turned out great! I wasn't a huge fan of Pilsner Urquell, but I thought I'd give this kit a shot anyways. The taste turned out very similar to what you have to pay almost $15 for a sixer for at a liquor store, if not better. Although my experience with lagers is very small, I think the key is temp control. After pitching the yeast into 40 deg wort and starting fermentation at room temp (65 deg), I dropped the temp to about 50 deg and left it for two weeks. I did a diacetyl rest for a day or so at room temp and then slowly brought the temp down to 33 deg and left it for 3 months. I bottled it, and only one week later, the beer was carbonated enough to drink. Great kit!!!

Ahhhh! Good Stuff!!
I just made this, and really like it, for me it's right up there with Midwest's Oktoberfest Kit, another of my all time favorite extract kits. _x000D_The only change I made was dry hopping with 1/2 oz saaz at 3 days before bottling, and adding an extra 1oz of priming sugar for a little extra fizz, but next time i think I'll just go with the standard 5oz, it tastes so good it really doesn't need the extra fizz._x000D__x000D_Will Definitely make more of this!

Unless you can lager...
If you cannot lager, the true Pilsner Urquell will be nearly impossible to replicate. The water alone that they use in Pilsen would be hard to replicate elsewhere. This kit will get you close, but remember if you want the Urquell just buy the real thing.

One of my Best!!!!
Just broke this out of the basement after a month in the carboy and a month in the bottle. Have made this kit before and always liked the results but this time it came out absolutely great. Can't decide if this Urquell kit is my favorite or the Octoberfest but maybe after another bottle of this.......

Good drinkable beer
My brothers and I made this and like it. We finished the keg in 3 weekends. Bummer,now we have to brew some more beer. I wouldn't say it's much like Pilsner Urquell, but we were more than happy to drink it. It's a good beer.
