The girlfriend wants me to make her a light beer. Not hoppy. Any suggestions?
Thank you

If you can lager, a simple 100% pilsner malt with mild hallertau hops is a miller light, look under light lager in recipes. my wife loves it and my BMC friends say it is the best beer...... Go figure..

The "Lawnmower Ale" from The Home Brewery, is really good for this task, easy to produce and tastes better than BMC.

Easy kit to brew too.
