Hello, I planned to make this lager. I want it to be very light and skunky. Think of my plan as a Corona Extra on steroids
? I personally do not drink corona, but I am making this for some friends. I have some questions though:
1. My yeast is good for 9% ABV. Is this beer going to be too high gravity to ferment to finish?
2. I have a big packet of Wyeast, (100 billion cells), it says on the back that this should be enough for a 5 gal brew. Is this true even for a high grav beer like this?
3. I want to make it as light as possible before making it taste too cidery (by using too much sugar/not enough malt). Do you think I could add more sugar or Cornmeal, and reduce the malt any further without this happeing?
4. Any other suggestions?
Batch size: 5gal
12lb Beligan pale malt

1.5oz Saaz (90mins)

Secoundary in indirect sunlight to skunk the beer.
