I am so doing this recipe next... I have too many hairly knuckle dragging friends that chuckle and laugh and look at me a little odd when I tell them I brew my own beer to not try this.

For some of them, it wouldn't matter if I handed them a craft beer (bought, from a store, with a receipt) or I hand them something I brewed. "Tastes like swampwater!", is what I hear... lol

Tell you what...pull out a half pound of the 2-row and a half pound of the corn and replace with 1 pound of simple table sugar. That will really lighten up and dry out this beer. That's a pretty normal practice for me with my "house" beer.

Hey guys,

I am a little concerned about my ability to convert the starches from the corn and rice adjuncts, with my current 2 row base malt. I just bought a 50 lb sack of Gambrinus 2 row Pale malt and noticed that the diastatic power of this is only 50..very similiar to that of a Belgian or British Pale Malt. Typically I use Great Western2 Row (D.P. of 140) or Maris Otter (D.P. of 120). So do you think I will have trouble converting the starches with this base malt? Should I increase the mash time?
Also, has anyone made this with Wyeast 1056? I searched the thread but didn't come up with anything.Thank guys!

Just took another sample out of the keg and (due to my mistakes) was still a bit bitter, followed by too much sweetness. I added 1/2 gallon of water to the 3.5 gallons of beer I had and took another sample. It tastes much, much better - and is ridiculously clear. I think this is going to be a really great brew for the Superbowl and all the BMC'ers. Thanks for the recipe!

Has anyone tried this using a bit less 2 row and some amylase enzyme in the secondary? I have seen a couple light recipes where guys use it and was wondering how it would be with this one?

I have used AE in this recipe and it works pretty damned good. I use it regularly in light-style beers.

As for less two row, see my recipe drop down for Miller Lite (Tri-Hop)

Its definitely has less two row. The AE helps keep the ABV up and the cost down.

Cleared up very nice at a month in primary. I plan to bottle it this weekend. I have always used 3/4 cup of dextrose. Should I up it for something like this?
