Ive tried this post before with little success so third time a charm..My goal is to create a lite american lager...All grain....Two row and rice only...1.40 SG/1.08 FG/4.2% Abv and under 100 calories..

Also id like a single hop addition of between 8-12 IBU...If anyone know of any recipes that would fulfill this requirement that would be great.

High gravity recipes welcome also just let me know the approximate water addition to add to it to satisfy the criteria above..Thanks!

NAIL 'lite' beers are either watered down or enzymatically treated to reduce the caloric content or triple hop brewed. This is usually done at the expense of flavor and alcohol. A very simple lager meeting all your requirements, sans calories, is going to run about 140 calories and not be very tasty.

Multiple - Centennial Blonde (Simple 4% All Grain, 5 & 10 Gall) - Home Brew Forums

Aberdeen Brewery - Session Haus Ale (3.5%), AG - Home Brew Forums

Six Shooter Pale Ale (AG, 4.5%, Late Addition Only) - Home Brew Forums


or even these, just adjust the hops !!!
Yes I understand that some of these are ALES, but I think you can work around that

What I don't understand is why go through all this trouble when you can buy flavorless light beers for little dough?

if you wanted to get away from a light lager and make a nice low calorie ale you could go with a scottish 60/-. It would probably be a little over the 100 calories but it be better than a bmc type clone.
