Brought a keg of this to my HB club. They liked it... They commented that this is a good transition beer for the BMC crowd who is getting into brewing. Not to mention the average HB'r will like this beer.

ML with flav...



This is condensation - This beer is pristine in clarity.

Does anyone know a scource of amylase enzyme besides the one from the LBS ? AFAIK some people suppliment their diets with it - there must be an AE brand. Anyone know ?

Yah, they sure swill!!!

This beer is so much better than ML. My friends think I do myself a disservice by even giving credence to Miller for this beer. The grain bill is their idea as was the triple hopping. The difference is that I followed through with the triple hopping.

hey schlerenka, i tested the gravity of mine tonight, she's at 1.002. it's absolutely crystal clear also, i think the AE speeds up the clearing process, no need for a cold crash IMHO. it tasted pretty damn good in the tube, very clean, crisp, and dry with just a hint of fruitness from the ale yeast. i'm sure when it's cold and lagered for a few weeks, it will be even better. like i said, i used rice instead of corn, but i'm sure the difference in negligible. i'll post a pic of it when she's carbed up. thanks again for sharing this. although i own charlie's book, it was a hand me down and i never got around to reading it!

Awesome!! Looking forward to a picture and your tasting notes. Are you kegging or bottling?

What did you use for hops again? Saaz??

BTW - You are welcome! This hobby speaks volumes about sharing!

How would you compare this to something like Fischer Blond? I'm having trouble imagining Miller with flavor.

I have never had a Fischer, so I can't compare them!

This beer is light, dry, and balanced. The hop bitterness is ~18-20 IBU but has a good hop taste and aroma from late & dry hopping. For bitterness its neutral. Its very easy drinking but not void of character. All of which is from the hops. There is corn in this recipe but the taste of corn is none existent due to AE drying out the beer. Its very clean and crisp.

I have made this with just the German noble hops, all Cascade, all Soriachi Ace and a combo of Ace & Cascade. The latter is what I have on tap now. 1st two additions were Ace, the dry hopping with cascade.

I really like the Ace hop since it has a lemony taste which makes it a great summer beer. When made with the German hops think of a light beer with the full hop profile of older American beers of the 70s. That said, the freshness is what makes it so much better. Being light and low ABV you will drink it quick which is good since the dry hopping flavor will dissipate over the long term.

Come fall I will be making this beer with All Saaz. I believe Android used this in his beer.

My homebrew buddies told me this is a good home brewing gateway beer for the BMC crowd. Light enough and low in bitterness for those types but with hop character that home brewers would still appreciate.

Its very good session beer!

Man, I wish I would have seen this thread a couple of weeks ago. A keg of this would have been perfect for the party that I'm having next weekend!
