I brewed a "fizzy yellow beer", an ale at cool temperatures, just for this weekend. We're out at the cottage, and I have two kegs sitting ready My brother in law, who loves Leinenkugel's Honey Weiss tried the "FYB". He declared it "the best beer you've EVER made!"

I knew it would be a hit! But, really. The best beer I've ever made? This beer is clear, yellow, and relatively flavorless. No fruitiness, and very little hops flavor. I said, "Thank you! I knew you'd like it- I brewed it especially for you!" He said that he hoped I had more, because only 5 gallons of that wouldn't be enough for the weekend. This is the guy who said that my other beers were "good" or "all right".

I will have to put this recipe in the database, as a light hybrid beer. It really is good, for a lawnmower beer.

Congrats! Pleasing that crowd isn't always easy. I remember you talking about this beer and not being able to remember who originally posted it. Is this the thread you were referring to?

No, that's not the thread! I posted the recipe later on, but nobody ever claimed it!

It did clear beautifully- I didn't use any finings at all- just left the keg in the fridge for a couple of weeks, then transferred it to a new keg. This morning, I brought the keg out to the cottage and put it on ice and set up a picnic tap. It's totally clear, sediment free and pretty to look at.

I think the keg of Irish red will be more popular tomorrow, when the rest of the guests come. We'll be playing ladder golf and fishing and kayaking and paddleboating, followed by a big fish fry with all kinds of food.

I also brought out about 5 kinds of homemade cheese, and several nice homemade wines. We have homemade bread, and lots of great food. Still, it's really all about the beer!

I know you were kidding, but.......................

EVERYBODY is always invited. Always. We even have a listing on "couchsurfing.com", where we offer up accomodations to travelers. We've had some interesting charact, er, visitors, that way!

Everybody on HBT always makes up lame excuses about it being a 20 hour drive for them. But, if you're ever in Chicago and feel like driving another 6 hours north, the cottage and lake are a welcoming place.

Dogs and kids also welcomed!

I tried to invite the Wisconsin gang up here, and the Michigan Mashers, for "brew camp", but no takers!

Good, cause im getting sick of my lawnmower knocking down my door for a beer when I finish using it. It almost reminds me of the Swiffer commercials, except this is a lawnmower that is stalking me instead of a broom or mop. That bastard drank the last of my other 2 batches when I wasnt looking either! (At least thats who Im gonna blame when I run out from now on)

Yooper, I wish you'd feed some FYB to the Red Wings so they lose once or twice!!

When I read your post, I had to laugh... my most "famous" beer was a Czech Pilsner that was fairly plain (Based on JZ's recipe). I have brewed some great beers, but to have that pilsner be the most requested kinda' broke my heart.

However, congrats on the lager! I got over my heartache by drinking another of my IIPA's!
