Fresh Cut is a beer made by Peak Brewing Company.  It's a dry hopped pilsner:




I'm looking to make something similar but probably not exactly the same.  For one I don't have any cent right now so I'll use cascade instead.



14lbs pilsner malt

2.5lbs Maris Otter (could also use vienna, GP, or US 2-row, I thought the MO might bring a nice graininess)

0.5lbs Carafoam


single infusion mash at 153F


30 min boil


1.5oz galena @ 30

1oz citra @ 0

1oz chinook @ 0

1oz citra hopstand

1.5oz chinook hopstand

2oz cascade hopstand


ferment on Diamond Lager at 52F (ramp up temp during fermentation)


Single dry hop towards end of primary TBD but will likely include citra/chinook/cascade.




OG: 1.046

SRM: 2.61

IBU: 37



Open to thoughts or suggestions.  Obviously I work with the ingredients I have.  Part of how I like to operate.

I think the precursor to this beer (Vienna Amber Lager) is showing signs of life at about 24 hours in.  I'm kind of pushing the boundaries here in that I only pitched 2 packets into 10 gallons and the yeast is best by Sept.  I have faith in the Diamond Lager though.


If possible I'll time it so that I can pitch the yeast from this beer within a few days of racking so I don't need to make a starter.  I have to think on a beer with this low of an OG the yeast would be able to do the job no problem.


I'll also be saving another mason jar to make another starter a few weeks after that to make something large and in charge.  I'm thinking of going off the reservation with this one.  The baltic porter kind of inspired me to make big style beers with lager yeast.
