I've been making lots of beer lately. The IPA I made last week will be ready to be packaged in a few days.
It's basically a scaled down version of "208," my best and most frequent brew.
Big brother's gravity is about 1.059 to 1.061. The light version is designed to be a 1.039 beer, or about 3.7 percent by volume.
There were a couple of recipe changes as well. Biscuit malt was replaced by some Victory malt I had to get rid of. And Munich Dark was put in place of Munich Light for the same reason. I also added a half pound of C60 to bolster the flavor for such a low gravity beer.
The idea is to make the same great Pale Ale with 33% less alcohol.
This beer, I hope, will come close. I have made it three times before with moderate success.
It'll never be the same as American Pale 208. But I'll be able to drink more in the late evening without having an unpleasant morning.
Good Beer To You.
