Let's get on it then.

Maybe as an aside, we can work to develop a GOOD TASTING, low calorie brew. Sort of like the cheap brew contest that was talked about last year...how low can you go on the calories per pint and still taste good?

I need to go back to my no eating after 11pm rule....I snack at night all the time, wake up in the middle of the night, snack, etc. It's 10-12 pounds of excess I don't need, and that's about it. Beer consumption has naturally gone down (except I still have 5-7 pints of Guinness when I drink it) so that's good.

Cliff Notes: Less late night eating, more water and I should be good

That's a fantastic idea. I'll gladly help.

I don't like BeerSmith because it estimates the calories for me on my dark, thick, heavy beers, and the number that it displays is usually three digits and starts with a 5.

OK. People, tell me what you think of this.

Lo-Cal-Brau
BeerSmith Recipe Printout - www.beersmith.com
Style: Lite American Lager

Recipe Specifications
--------------------------
Batch Size: 5.00 gal
Boil Size: 6.84 gal
Estimated OG: 1.030 SG
Estimated Color: 2.6 SRM
Estimated IBU: 10.9 IBU
Brewhouse Efficiency: 70.00 %
Boil Time: 90 Minutes

Ingredients:

3 lbs 8.0 oz Pilsen Malt (1.0 SRM)
8.0 oz Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM)
8.0 oz Maize, Flaked (2.0 SRM)
2.0 oz Caramel Malt - 40L (Briess) (40.0 SRM)
4.0 oz Rice Hulls (0.0 SRM)
1.00 tbsp PH 5.2 Stabilizer (Mash 60.0 min)

Single Infusion, Light Body, Batch Sparge
60 min Mash In Add 1.52 gal of water at 161.4 F 150.0 F

Boil 90 minutes:
0.50 oz Crystal [3.50 %] (60 min) Hops 8.0 IBU
0.50 oz Crystal [3.50 %] (10 min) Hops 2.9 IBU

1 lbs Honey (1.0 SRM) Last 5 minutes of boil.

0.50 tsp Gelatin (Secondary)

I would imagine one could run this as either an ale or a lager. According to BeerSmith, this is 2.86% ABV, 130 cal/pint. I could get that down further, but I'd have to leave out barley.
