OK, so I made the recipe I posted above with the following change:
-Replaced the 1lb Carapils with 2lbs flaked maize.
-Used 1 cup of corn sugar (don't have a scale to measure 0.75lbs)
Everything else was the same.
Came out exactly the way I was shooting for. Crystal clear, good head, very crisp, clean and refreshing.
I challenged myself to make a light beer that my Miller drinking father would like and I succeeded.
We sat on the patio basking in the sun all afternoon shooting the $hit and drinking my homebrew.
I'll make this one again!
