One of the most interesting homebrews I've ever had was a really well made Lavender Pilsner. It was super refreshing with a beautiful floral aroma and taste. Add 0.75 ounces of Lavender at flameout of your brew and let it stay in the kettle as you cool. Be careful not to overdo it, too much can be aggressive!
Pilsner is a great beer because it meshes so well with so many foods. Traditionally it�s paired with hefty Brats and a spicy mustard but it also makes an incredible compliment to Indian style dishes which tend to use spices as one of their main flavor features. Pils is also a great complement to the soft flavors of a baked fish so be sure to try it!
