i love doing beers like these, there is nothing better after a hard days work when you need to get up the next day! +1 on the extra crystal malt, i go potty with lots of late hops too!
something i often do is brew a 5g beer at 1060+ then dilute by half, then hop and ferment each half differently. great for kegging!

So I brewed an Oaty Mild yesterday that came in about 1.024 (off by .002) and setup a little blog to keep track of everything moving forward (I merged my other one in there as well). The recipe is on there.

Check it out: Small Homebrew - on a quest to brew the best beers under 3% (SG of 1.032 or less)

Was thinking about putting together a pale mild recipe. Here's what I'm thinking...

79% Vienna
10% Crystal 20
8% Flaked Barley
3% Aromatic

Warrior at 60
.25 Columbus at 5
.25 Amarillo at 5
.50 Columbus at flameout
.50 Amarillo at flameout

OG 1.038
IBU 22

Wyeast 1968

Thoughts?

I think the malt bill looks really cool but milds are generally super low in hop bitterness and aroma - more malt forward-I like EKG & Fuggles or any noble low aa hop

I'd like to see the results of this one either way

i brew super hoppy low gravity ales, as long as you keep the crystal to at least 10% it totally works. great session beers, most of my mates cant tell its a low alc beer.

It's nor real beer if its under 3%. Beer guidelines dictate.........

Kidding. I'm saving the recipe for future use. Would love a low alc summer beer with some taste.
