Any reason not to do this with maybe MO or Vienna? And an added late hop addition?

I don't have many BMC drinkers in my family but they'd probably drink something light if it had some character.

Try it as it is, if you wanted more character I'd do the late or dry hop addition. The malt & adjuncts here are a good starting point for any light beer. Maybe toast about 1/4-1/2 pound of the pale malt for 10-15 minutes at 350F.

I shoot for 1033 and attenuate down to 1005-6. Gives me a nice dry 3.5%+ quaffer.

What would happen to this brew if a pound of oatmeal were added to it?

I just tasted mine tonight too. this is my second 10gallon batch. The first time I added a bit sugar and more rice. It was ok. This time I made it exactly as per recipe. Man what a difference. This stuff is pretty darn good.

Default Thankyou Biermuncher


I joined this forum specifically to thank Biermuncher for this wonderful recipe.

I made it for July Fourth party and it was cold and light and just right.

And what a fantastic way to get new homebrew converts!

FWIW I brought this brew by a local brewery (Southern Star here in Texas) and their brewmaster seemed legitimately impressed. They couldn't get over how light in color it was while still being really flavorful.

Wow.

I'm humbled.

I seem to be on the hook to keep this recipe (or slight variations) on tap full time now.

I have to have a keg ready for the big tailgate on the 28th, which my dad just informed me of yesterday and this just looked like the perfect recipe. It hurt to pay $20 bucks to get the ingredient at the lhbs, but when dad throws his credit card at something I jump (would have cost $12 bucks from brewmasterswarehouse).

So I'm thinking 2 week primary, secondary with gelatin for 2 days, and then hit it at about 30 psi for 2 days. Then I can kick it back to serving pressure and be ready to role the next day.

I was wondering though, I have hallertau, chinook, cascade and centennial on hand, would my best bet for hopping be to just hit it with an ounce of hallertau at 60 minutes. Couldn't do 4 dollars for an ounce for willamette, just would have hurt my constitution.

Thanks
