Look at your last 10-15 batches. Where do you fall typically with your beer? I am at about 8% with a high of 13 and low of 5.5.

Any keys to a good full flavor on light beers? I am going to be doing a 4% pale. I want to make it light in color and around 25-30 ibus using nugget and cascade. Probably some Vienna malt.
