    How's about a mug of ice cold light lager after mowing the lawn on a miserably hot day?
    Unbelievable aroma and flavor from that yeast. :mug:1.036-.005, 4.07% ABV. Rahr pils acid malt

    Hardrain, if you don't have a LHBS/source for CaCl2, you can go to your supermarket canning
    section and buy "Pickle crisp" which is CaCl2.

    Something brought up in that thread was that the vienna I used was my LHBS's unlabeled malt
    which I believe is Breiss. May be why it didn't add too much flavor to my beer.

    What is your recipe for especial? It may be my favorite adjunct lager. I just tried to clone it
    using 2 row, a little Vienna, and flaked corn. Fermented using wlp940. It is pretty good even
    though I h...

    I'm gonna give my $.02 on the idea of an exact BL clone. Those are my beers in post #123 and I
    brew mostly lagers. May have brewed 1 ale in the last 4 years. That very pale top beer was rice
    and corn ...

    Love the simplicity, and the Tyranena glassware! :mug:Thanks. It also had acid malt for pH
    adjustment to 5.3 mash pH, RO water w/ 50ppm Ca from CaCl2. Not as difficult to get this beer
    to taste good a...

    Are you just adding the starch right into the mash tun? It should in theory require heating to
    gelatinze the starches but doing so with pure corn starch has always led to absolutely disaster
    for me si...

    brewed this a couple times now thanks rccola. Not knowing how beersmith would calculate the
    corn starch. I entered it as flaked corn and added ingredients to make the 1.044 og posted.
