I've been planning on trying a super dry FYB SMaSH with 2-row, a little crystal, and beano. Looking forward to it actually. I've been craving something lighter that I can just drink like water.

Brewing a clean, clear, and balanced light beer is probably one of the most difficult things to do, so 'grats!

What yeast did you use and how low did you go?

I remember the thread where you extended invitation to Michigan mashers. I actually joined that group to be invited But could not make, because, I mean C'mon, it's like 20 hours away! But seriously, congrats on pleasing the masses. I stopped trying to do that because with my limited brew schedule I found I wasn't making the beers I actaully wanted, just what I thought people would generally like. But maybe someday if I get a huge pipeline built up. But I'm doing my first party brews and saying screw it, and making 10 Gallons of Moose Drool, and 10 (more)Gallons of Phat Tire clone.

I used S05, and fermented it right at 62 degrees for about 14 days, then racked to a keg. It sat at 66 degrees, then went into the kegerator for a couple of weeks. The weekend is over, but that keg was empty by Saturday evening. The rest of the weekend, they were stuck drinking Irish red.

Make him some hand made processed cheese. It might turn out to be your best cheese ever!

You know how hard it is to make a good fizzy yellow beer? It's probably 100 times harder to make a good cheese-food product.

But, the pepper jack was also a huge hit!

Way to go Lorena.

While the light fizzy stuff isn't a mainstay for me personally, it has sure converted more neighbors, family and friends to the "pros" of homebrewing than any other beer.

We killed a keg and a half on Saturday of my "Wifey Pooh" ale.

10# of grain for an 11 gallon batch?

I guess we're destined to have some low gravity beers on tap all the time now.
