The name, “Snatch the Pebble” refers to that classic American TV show, Kung Fu, and speaks to Jamil’s efforts to master this style of beer. Classic American Pilsner is your greatgrandfathers beer, pre-prohibition, with a hearty beer flavor, and assertive hop bitterness, but with an easy-drinking body from the corn adjunct. Corn syrup solids are mostly maltose, produced by mashing corn and drying the wort to solid form. This is the easiest way to get true adjunct corn character into the beer without the necessary cooking beforehand.
