I want to brew a czech pilsner. Any suggestions for a hopping schedule? I am going to use Saaz for flavor and aroma; what should I use for a bittering hop?

Use Saaz as the bittering hop as well.

A one malt, one hop Czech Pils is a thing of beauty if done correctly.

It should be a fairly bitter beer to be true to style. Shoot for around 40 IBU's. I brewed mine again a month ago. All Czech Saaz, 3.5oz at 60min and 1oz at 15min.

I read an article on Urquell once that mentioned three equal additions at: 120(FWH), 80 and 25 minutes.

I brewed my first Pilsner last year using sterling hops that I grew in my backyard and it tasted quite like a czech pilsner to me.
I will be doing it again this year. Since I expect a much larger crop this year I will brew it several times with different yeasts.
