LOL, thank God! I made a joke about making a Bud ice clone and a pbr clone, I was afraid you might have taken offense! But you took a bet. OK.

Still, I would buy a bunch of it and put it in some bottles. When you have won the bet, brew something a little better. To each their own!

Is that .1 (1/10th) of an oz? What AA% are they?

The AA% is actually more important than the amount as AA%'s vary.

That .1 oz might be a bit high. Add 2 or 3 pellets of 4% Hallertaur and call it done.

Yeah, 2 or 3 pellets of 4% sounds about right.

As far as the piss goes it adds that special something that you get in those nice American light lagers. Little bit of ammonia and some other generally toxic chemicals that make your next morning feel sooooo great. I think it needs trace amounts of an aldehyde, and maybe some higher carbon alcohols.

I think sause put it best: "Had some Bud Light analyzed once. They told me my dog had diabetes... And was pregnant‽" If you can get that outcome, you got it spot on!

all joking of course, I enjoy the occasional fizzy water especially when it's really hot.

Default pabst recipe

First question: Are you rich?
Because Liquid Gold is the main ingrediant in Pabst Blue Ribbon.
This is way it's price moves with the price of Gold.
