So I've hit a wall; can't think of a recipe for my brew day Thursday. Plan on doing an extract, and looking for a lighter beer with a higher gravity. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What do you like? Do you want to clone something? I've been browsing hopville.com lately and there are some good recipes, although the website could use some work.

Just looking for a lighter, mild hops recipe right now. Brewed some darker beers on my last two batches, so I'm looking to go away from those. Would like something that's "session able". You know....something you can drink a lot of in one sitting and get drunk on. A clone might be nice.

If you like ginger ale I've had a lot of success with this quick and easy extract one. Very refreshing and I tend to drink too many during a "session."

Size: 5 gal
Type: Extract
Boil: 30 minutes
IBU: 12.5
SRM: 7
OG: 1.036
FG: 1.008
ABV: 3.6%

Specialty Grains: (Steep @ 154F in 1.25 qts for 30 min)
.5 Lb -- Crystal 40L
.5 Lb -- Honey Malt

Fermentables:
3 Lbs -- Extra Light DME
1 Lb -- Amber DME

Hops:
0.25 oz -- Citra (12% AA) 30 min
0.25 oz -- Citra 15 min
0.50 oz -- Citra Dry Hop 14 days

Other:
4 oz Fresh, peeled Ginger Root; sliced thin (I use a mandolin)
----- 4 oz of Ginger makes it pretty spicy (which I like); use 2-3 oz for more subtle flavor
----- Add the ginger at the beginning of the boil and strain it out before pitching.

Yeast:
1 pkg -- Safale American US-05; Rehydrate per package

Primary 7 days; Secondary 14 days (Dry hop); Condition 3-4 weeks with 4.5 oz corn sugar (2.6 vol).

Only 4lbs of extract for a 5 gallon batch seems a bit low.
