Default Need some quick and easy brew ideas...

Should be finishing my keezer this weekend but that means I will have 2 dry taps... well 1 dry tap once I brew the IPA I have all ready to brew this weekend. Anyway, over the next couple weeks I want to fill that last tap and the two kegs I will have in the keezer for conditioning.

What I need is recipes. It is late summer and still hot as it gets here so something lite would be nice. A quick and easy brew with some flavor that I can give out to the non-brewmeisters at work without scaring them off would also work.

I'm pretty new at it all with only maybe a dozen or so brews under my belt but am the type of person that will try anything once and maybe even twice if it didn't kill me the first time, lol.
