I think the threshold is Light American Lagers are YFB and everything else is "real beer". If we want to get down to ingredients, I tend to think of real beer as anything with more than 90% malted barley, wheat or rye as its fermentables, preferably 100%. The BMCs of the world rely heavily on rice and it's a turn off.

I don't know. I'm trying not to be such a beer snob because it's such a stereotypical attribute of homebrewers. If I pour Budweiser into a glass and let it warm up just a bit, I enjoy it every bit as much as an ESB or IPA depending on my mood. I have brewed quite a few base-grain only beers with low IBU that I'd consider all-malt, BMC alternatives. Most people like them, even beer snobs.

I love PBR at times. In fact I have R/V PBR for drinking while surfing...

In the same vein as this thread, for seafood I try to get the rest of the plate into the background so the seafood can be supported in stardom. Was wondering about a specific brew for lobster or shell fish over here:

I reviewed thread titles on all 287 hits on "Bah Humbug" in the recipe section. I got nothing, unless you mean the joke about 2# extra light *ME plus a pinch of hops in 5 gallons water.

I followed the link to orfyblog.com today and didn't see a FYB recipe there either.

I suspect our collective leg is being pulled, yes?

I tried the same experiment recently - my first lager. SWMBO is a BMC drinker although I'm slowly converting her to the dark side.

BeerSmith Recipe Printout - www.beersmith.com
Recipe: HopHed FPW
Brewer: HopHed Brewhaus
Asst Brewer:

--------------------------
Batch Size: 5.50 gal

I hit my target gravity dead on at 1.043, but Saflager has yet to kick in. It's been 48 hours and it's my first lager so I'm not overly concerned yet, but I certainly expected to see some activity by now.

Excellent Alamo, thank you for the link.

I cracked on of my Papzain recipe "Quarterbocks" today to check for bottle bombs. I bottled these two weeks ago. Today I randomly selected one and chilled it.

The head is good, the bubbles are fine, my glass is laced, I'll give them a couple more weeks, but I am not drinking this. Blech!
