Brewer's Comments: "This is my sixth attempt at brewing beer, my first using a recipe that includes 2 cans of (HME). I sampled this brew after 14 days of fermentation, the taste was very pleasing with a nice hoppy aroma consistent with the very best pilsner beers. I will let this brew ferment as planned for another 7 days before bottling it up, even though it did not taste at all sweet.
I decided to add 1/2 pouch of Booster to the wort to increase the alcohol content by .6 abv. and to increase the body of the beer."
