This is my first post here, looking for some advice. I've been thinking about brewing a low-ABV hoppy session beer. I want something below 4% ABV but with a good amount of hops in there.
I've put together a recipe but since I've mostly brewed higher OG beers and don't really have good feeling for how to balance the hops at these lower OGs so I'd welcome some advice and ideas.
BTW, sorry about being all metric. I'm still on a primitive brewing program and can't convert units. Really Looking forward to getting the new Mac Beersmith in a few weeks!
