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.

I just posted the recipe- if you look, you'll see that I got 75% efficiency, and 85% attenuation, giving me a 6% ABV beer. It went down well, though, and no one seemed to notice that it wasn't a 4.5% beer like I initially planned! Maybe that's why it was so good, though- it had some flavor, and it was very nicely balanced with the malt and hops.

I don't think this will qualify as a "wifey-pooh" ale, Biermuncher! I mean, at our house, a "wifey pooh" ale would be an IIPA with extra dryhopping. But, you know, that is a brilliant idea! A HUGE IIPA and call it "girly beer".

Sounds like most of the popular macro brew beers ha ha ha.

Now that you have conquered the BMC challenge I would like to see you take 1 pound of prime black angus and turn it into a Big Mac please.

Now, that's just not something I could do! I haven't had a Big Mac in at least 20 years, maybe longer.

I do have standards, you know! They're low, but I have them.

I brewed up Biermunchers Centennial Blonde a few weeks back and put it on tap. Had some of my wife's relatives over for her grandpa's internment on Sat and my Blonde got good reviews. FIL said it was very good. Wife's cousin had three tall glasses and had to have his girlfriend drive him home. Even my friend who only drinks beer for his health liked it and said he could make that and enjoy it all the time (he's my brewing buddy, so I may have HIM do the brewing next time and he can keep the beer!)

My FIL is getting to the point where he will try an IPA and say it's not bad.

And Yooper, whereabouts are you? I could plan a stop by this summer if we get up that way! I've been wanting to head up north and go west in the UP for some time.

In the central UP, about 5 hours west of the Bridge. You are always invited!

LOL! That's not very precise! You can PM me the closest town name. I promise not to tell! Or we can play colder or warmer...
