The Mangrove Jack’s International Series Czech Pilsener, Part of the Mangrove Jacks International Series is a great thirst quencher and a well-crafted beer that offers a traditional, crisp and refreshing taste. Like all Mangrove Jacks beer kits, the Czech Pilsener is brewed using high-quality ingredients and traditional methods, resulting in a beer that has a light and clean flavor profile. The beer has a delicate balance of hops and malts, giving it a slightly bitter and malty taste. The carbonation level is just right, giving the beer a light and effervescent feel. Overall, the Mangrove Jack’s Czech Pilsener is a great choice for those looking for a traditional and well-made pilsener that is perfect for any occasion.


Additional Ingredients Required:

For fermentation you will also require 1kg of dextrose. As an alternative to dextrose consider Liquid Brewing Sugar to reduce the sweet finish and improve the mouthfeel of your brew. Liquid Malt will give you a smoother mouthfeel and more body – we would suggest using a Ultra Light LME.


Premium Yeast Options:

The Mangrove Jacks Czech Pilsener does come with style appropriate yeast. Selecting a premium yeast can give you more flexibility when brewing in ambient temperatures and can improve the quality of your final product or support unique flavour characteristics.

We’ve brewed this kit with the SafLager S-189 which we chose to support the anticipated floral notes in the brew and got a great result. Other yeasts we think would work well with this brew are the Mangrove Jacks M54 Californian Lager yeast which has a very clean flavour profile or the Mangrove Jacks M84 Bohemian Lager Yeast.

If you use a premium yeast you would discard the factory yeast.


Suggested hop pairing:

For dry hopping the Mangrove Jacks Czech Pilsener, try using the Czech Saaz hop. Saaz hops are a traditional variety commonly used in Czech Pilseners and are known for their mild, spicy and earthy aroma. They impart a subtle, yet distinct hoppy character to the beer that complements the beer’s delicate balance of hops and malts. The Saaz hops will help to enhance the beer’s flavor profile and add an extra layer of complexity to the finished product.
