Default Control of the skunk!!!

My last and only lager to date was a huge hit with all my friends. One of my friends suggested a Moosehead lager style or grolsh or one of the skunk beers per say. I love em. I under stand the skunk flavor and aroma is a byproduct of light and hops. How can i get a skunk flavor to imitate the charactaristics of these beers but not toooooo much????????

What kind of a question is that? Bottle in clear bottle and put in the sun.

Why would someone ask how to skunk their beer?(he asks to himself)

OK. But why brew it? Not really my right to judge but if you wan to skunk it just add light. Ill say take a six pack or maybe a 12 pack and expose them to sunlight. Remove them in regular intervals. You can make these up depending on the intensity of the the light. Higher intensity they will skunk faster. More overcast it will take longer. Untill you find the proper level of skunenness.
Yes grammer police I understand that gammer hurt a little.

St Paullis girl is one of my fav beers. The skuniness in the beer is balanced though, its not like a Heineken where thats all you can taste is the skunk flavor.

Bottle in green or clear bottles, leave in the sun for 1 hr. Repeat as neccasary

I was going for sitting in the yard and drinking as "scientific" and "experimental".

Aww c'mon now guys. Quit givin' him a hard time. I understand, you feel like you gotta throw in the requisite "Why the eff?" but let him be now. He's got the drift.

I wonder - and this is JUST a thought, not a recommendation - what if you added 1 oz or 2 oz of acid malt to the grain bill? Maybe? That could be completely off base, let someone else correct me before you go doing it.

Otherwise I think +1 to using clear bottles, and just intentionally skunking them.

Or... better yet. Don't do it. Just brew a clone, and don't let it skunk, and see what your friends say. After all, you're in the position to be the "beer expert"... maybe they'll trust your guidance.
