I'll be brewing a lower ABV version of my MO SMaSH for summer enjoyment. The first one finished at 6.7%, which is really solid but I think I want something closer to the 5.5-6.0% range for summer time enjoyment.

If you go to Brewmasters Warehouse the Centennial Blonde is available with a single click. Well, several clicks

Two NB kits or recipes anyway come to mind.

1. Patersbier - awesome session beer even the BMC crowd loves.
2. T-Can and Bearcat Wheaten Beatdown - see above.

I've brewed both and when the weather turns, both will be rebrewed.

my Bud Light Friends liked this one
6lb pilsner malt
2.5 lbs wheat malt
1 oz 4.3%Williamette
1 oz Check Sazz

usa a clean American Ale yeast

mash at 150-155 60 mins
mash out at 170 collect 6.5 gallons
90 min boil
add Williamette at start of boil
add Sazz at about 10 mins left

14 to 20 in primary forget the secondary

It has enough hops and maltiness to tell its not a BMC but is light and refreshing
it comes out at around 5%ABV and really starts tasting good after about 2 weeks cold conditioning after carbing.
Good luck and enjoy
