Default 2 row exclusive

My American Pilsner
1 malt
1 decoction
2 hops

You could make it really simple and forgo the decoction. BTW this beer turned out terrific. I'd make it again with a different yeast though, wasn't pysched about the White labs American Lager yeast WLP840. Good transition beer for those BMC friends.

I have been tempted to try just using base malt. I have to build up my bottle stock before I actually do it. It will be nice to hear your experience.

The blonde I just did was 8.5lb 2-row, half pound of crystal 10. That's about as basic as it gets. I can't really tell if the crystal did anything. The malt character is relatively low (ok, very low) but I also barely bittered it. I like it but it's pretty embarrassing that my wife's Coors Light-ONLY friends pulled off that keg like they were trying suck start a Harley. Ok, it is a good thing.

Recipe looks nice. I like the KISS method as well.

I'd be really, really temped to do a small decoction to pull out a little extra color and flavor, especially since it looks like a domestic 2-row rather than a Brit. But, nothing wrong with a smallish, clean, simple beer.

With the honey malt and crystal in there? Decoction definitely not needed.

You guys and your decoctions. It is amazing.

I forgot about the honey malt and the crystal... doing too many things at once...

Toast your own Specialty Grains. I am brewing on monday. Making my first (year's hop)harvest ale. I ended up with about 1.5oz of nugget, 2.25oz cascade and .75oz goldings. Going to toast up some specialty grains for this one as well. I figure why not make as many of the ingredients for this batch as I can!(I want to get into malting my own grains for giggles but I'll save that for later this year when I have more time on my hands) And I have wanted to do this for some time!
