Over the past few years I've rarely brewed anything over 4% and most brews are around 3%.

I've recently been very interested in the blog 'shut up about Barkley Perkins' and the milds and bitters they post under 1.030 sg

Anybody brewed them? Or have sub 1.030 recipes they enjoy?

* FYI not looking to debate session ales

I'm thinking about setting up a blog on sub 1.030 homebrew ales and posting recipes/experiments - would anyone here be interested in that info?

The guys at Basic Brewing posted a couple - one recently starts at 1.024. I was wondering the same whether anyone else brews them. I love the idea of a tasty low alcohol (and calorie) brew - but would hate to waste my precious brewing time.

Thanks for bringing this up!

Cool ill check that out - Brewdog has also put out a few beers one at 1% called Nanny State I believe.

As for the waste - I brew all grain partial boil batch sprarge - brew day is rarely over 3 hours and you end up with same quantity, win-win.

I've brewed milds, bitters,saisons & small IPAs in this range - even messed around with wine yeasts in one beer

Brewdog made nanny state the lowest alcohol beer in the world as a FU to the brittosh government for beating them up about their series of highest alcohol in the world beers.

A low gravity/calorie beer with explosive hop flavor is on my list, as soon as I get moved I'm going to start tinkering.

Love this idea. If anyone has a great session dark mild recipe in this range I'd love to see it.
