It's been many years since I have lived in Germany, but the thing I've
missed most is a good glass of German Pilz. I've grown weary of drinking the
imported brands and have decided to pursue making my own. Can anyone
recommend an available kit to start with that will produce a smooth full
bodied German style pilz with a good head? Thanks in advance.

There are all sorts of websites on the net that will lead you in the right
direction as well as a few newsgroups. You can try this for starters

difficult styles to brew and not recommended for someone new to brewing.

Starting out with making a good pilsner really is like jumping in at the
deep end. You'll need something like an old fridge or freezer with an
aftermarket temperature controller and a lot of attention to detail. Done
properly, most decent kits (Muntons, Brewcraft etc) will give you good
results.

If Brewcraft products are available to you (I think they're made by Muntons)
then they have a selection of kit converters that replace the sugar
www.brewcraft.com.au If so, then the book Brewing Crafts by Mike
Rogers-Wilson has many recipies to imitate commercial drinks with Brewcraft
products e.g. Stella Atios, Pilsner Urquell, Gilde Pilsner etc.

If you're really serious about doing pilsners or any lagers then invest
about $US16 at www.amazon.com on Gregory J Noonan's book New Brewing Lager
Beer. It has been recommended time after time by folks here for those
wanting to suss out the lager making process.

Good point but I think Noonans book is for the more advanced brewer. Start
with How to Brew by John Palmer and then move on to Noonans book. This is
from experience.
