unless you are doing some big brews there is really no difference in Homebrew alcohol content compared to commercial beers both regular and "light". Most of mine fall between 5-6%.

Light beer does not mean light in Alcohol in most beers, MGD has 5% alcohol while Miller light has 4.5%.Light beers just tend to have far less carbohydrates in them usually around 2 -3 grams as apposed to reg beer that has 12-14 grams per 12 0z. This is what lowers the calorie content .

Sadly, I have none fermenting as I've been working 80-90hr weeks since bottling the last two batches. I do plan on washing some yeast off of the next batches to save some *dough.

I have heard all that before but for some reason, don't know why, I can never drink as many "regular" beers as I can "light" beers no matter what and not get more drunk sooner. And that may be just my imagination but I have been having that fantasy dream for going on 30 years now. Ok, I drink Natural Light the most (yup, I admit that) because I can drink a lot and still not get too buzzed. It's the next best thing to drinking water while I putt around the house doing things only difference is that eventually I start to get buzzed. My home brews usually fall around the 5% range and they always get me buzzed quicker.

Only two, a honey nut brown and apfelwein.
After thirty five years of being married to me my wife has become immune.
