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".
