Recipe Type: Extract   
Yeast: Wyeast Labs #1056   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.051   
Final Gravity: 1.004   
IBU: 15.9   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60

Tasting Notes: Tastes similar to a Bud/Coors, but better.   

My SWMBO is a Coors light drinker, or was, I should say. She refused to drink anything I made (I like IPAs and Imperial Stouts). So, in an attempt to convert her to real beer I made this recipe and she liked it. She liked it enough that she would rather have it than Coors. So, using this as a starting point I have now got her into a lot of different Craft Beers.

I don't have a pic, but it comes out really really light and crystal clear.

Oops, I'll edit it. I usually only do AG batches and when I started doing this recipe I was using 5.5lbs of pilsner. But, It seemed like a waste of time and using the extract I can do this recipe and follow up with an AG batch in about 5 hours, including cleanup. I just forgot to take that part out. Thanks for pointing that out.

Also, when using the grain I mashed at 149 to make it thinner and dryer.
