Cornelius Faust, the Head brewer of Faust Brewery (Brauhaus) in Miltenberg Germany. When Tod was in Germany he brewed with Cornelius at Brauhaus Faust, so we thought we would return the favor. Luckily, Horst Dornbush, a brewer turned journalist and long time friend of Tod, was showing Cornelius around New England before he had to head back to Germany. Cornelius spoke really great English, but some brewing terms didn’t translate that well. So Horst helped with that plus was one more head in the mix for Thursdays brew. Which was helpful.
The Faust Pilsner gave us the challenge of doing an upwards infusion mash, on a system that really wasn’t set up for it. But with the four heads working, of brewers from both sides the the Atlantic, we were successful. We made a very traditional German Style Pils that is just starting fermentation now but should come out to be around 4-4.5% ABV

Ok I was sad to see this one go so I need to review it. I was there the day it was brewed so I know what a hassle it was to brew guy’s but it was worth it.
I has this brew from a growler and strait from the Tap both were Identical in quality. It poured with a nice two finger white head and the body was crystal clear and a nice straw in color.
It had a light hop note presence in the front with a wonderful bready yeast in its aroma’s this thing is the freshest Pils I have ever drank so I will have to say it is the best Pils I have ever drank. The flavor was sweet and spicy and it was crisp and clean in my mouth.
By far the best session brew to come out of Portsmouth in years. If you missed it I am sorry. One can only hope that this becomes a regular in the rotation but seeing that it’s a lager I kind of doubt it myself. Thus explaining all the crying when it kicked
