This is one of my favorites to make now. It's crisp, light, creamy mouth feel, slightly malty, slightly hoppy. Yummy!

I ferment this in the mid 60's.
California Commons typically have 30-40 IBU ratings, so this cuts that in half (thus the un-common). Also, I don't believe Pilsner yeast is commonly used for CC's, but I find it adds the right malty profile I'm looking for in the beverage. It's a Pilsner Ale.
