OK..... I am frickin tired of seeing those triple hopped BS commercials from Miller. Who's with me?

One of my preferred HB-Library books, "Home Brewers Gold" written by Chuck has a recipe for Miller Lite.

Wow - to my surprise its not even triple hopped!!!

Here it is, I'm gonna make this but REALLY do the triple hopping with somethin'

I'm gonna keep the IBU at 16 but do a late hop at flame out, then dry hop it too.

So my proposed Tripling is at; 60, 0, Dry

Question - Now what should I use fer hops......?????

I forgot to mention my other motive here.

I'm unemployed and I want to make a cheap lawnmower beer. I think the novelty of REALLY triple hopped Miller Lite will just amuse me.

GREAT IDEA! I would love someone to actually "Triple Hop" a Miller Lite to see what it tastes like compared to an actual Miller Lite (if it is triple hopped or not).

I found this in an extract miller light clone recipe on the beertools board.

Quote:
1 oz. Hallertau (Pellets, 4.50 %AA) boiled 60 min.
1 oz. Hallertau (Whole, 4.50 %AA) boiled 0 min.
2 ounces of hallertau....seems high to me.

Yes, I think so. Maybe their starter was triple hopped.

I was thinking liberty or hallertauer. I also have a good bit of saaz too.

Wow, 8 posts in and nobody has made the usual "ingredient" reference... might be a record for a BMC thread!
