I bet PBR malt gives a distinct urine/watery flavor

PBR used to make a lite beer with only 70 calories. I drank it for a while when I was really into working out. It was the lowest calorie beer I ever found. I actually looked for PBR not too long ago, no wonder I couldn't find it.

Yes, PBR sure has become popular in the NW the last few years. I'm guilty, I drink it every so often, mainly when I go camping.

to Gresham! I grew up there.

HOW ABOUT THOSE OSU BEAVERS!!!!

If I'm right the Pabst family was also instrumental in getting the ski industry/resorts going in the US. I still have fond memories of slamming a near frozen PBR on the chair-lift while night skiing at Brighton...

I confess I used to drink the heck out of PBR, until they got bought out and the workers got screwed out of their pensions. Screw em.

Does anyone know if this is still available and if there is a place on the internet I can buy it from? I am not even sure if it is still available. If not is there something any of you would recommend that might be comparable?
Ha! Blue Ribbon malt! I used to buy that at the supermarket many moons ago. AFAIK Blue Ribbon disappeared from distribution back in the 1970s. To sub just for the malt you could use any light malt extract and I was going to suggest Alexanders or Premier as the closest sub but I see the Premier-Blue Ribbon link was already posted. I would also agree with the other post about investigating buying a good extract ingredient kit to make the beer. Homebrewing has come a long way since the Blue Ribbon brand went away.

In the pre-legal days of homebrewing you could send to an address on the Blue Ribbon can for recipes. A couple of weeks later two envelopes would be in the mailbox. One was on company letterhead and had recipes for adding malt extract to many baked goods and such. The other envelope was plain white with no return address. It had a hand typed recipe for making a batch of homebrew.
