Looks good, has anyone else tried this? I want to brew a beer for my girlfriend (new to craft beers); would this be good for her?

Can you sub out the corn to make it all grain? Any other way to thin it out besides sugar/corn/rice?:(

Weird- I didnt mean to put 6 row

I will try to get a pic up. I dont know if just using 2 row instead of corn would keep it as light as it is

What mash schedule did you use? Did you do a protein rest? How would using 6-row change this beer?

MikeFlynn74 10-03-2008 01:16 AM

I used 2 row- no protein rest.

152 for 8 million minutes. Or 60 which ever comes first.
