Since my duplex has horrible insulation brewing beer during the summer does not seem to be an option! I want to brew a few more before we really start getting hot here in california. I have already made a Hef, IPA, and a Wit. What other suggestions or recipes do you have for a good summah beer?

Have a summah!

Cream Ale - cheap, fast, and goes down easy.

Just like my first wife....

Try a light bodied fruit beer. Subtle apricot can be quite good on a hot day.

The Midwest magic magnet says, Liberty cream ale, Noble Trappist ale and Happy Holiday ale through the next 3 months. I have brewed none of those. I never listen to the magnet.

Summer shandy. Just brew an American wheat and rack onto a couple pounds of sliced lemons and viola! A delicious and refreshing summer brew.

Wheat beers always seem to hit the spot for me in hot weather, since you already made a Wit, how about a nice hoppy American Wheat.... a Saison would be good too.

Try a German Dampf or a Honey Lemon Wit

Why not brew at night when it is cooler? Yeah, it will still be warm but not hot.
