I’m not sure what the point of P dun, that is “thin” Pils, it being almost identical to Licht Lagerbier. The only difference being ever so slightly fewer hops.
The hopping rates per hl are much the same as in 1941, despite the reduction in gravities. And because of that the hopping rates per 100 kg of malt are much higher, other than in the Pils. In the case of the Licht and Donker Lagerbiers it’s around double. Clearly hop supply was less of a problem than malt supply.
Attenuation also remains unchanged from the previous year at a little over 70%. Down a little on the pre-war average of around 75%. Doubtless a result of wanting leave at least a little body.
