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
