Premium American Lager


I made this batch after taking quite a while brewing a wheat beer. I pulled a couple of bags of hops out of my freezer, grabbed two cans of malt, and threw together a quick-n-easy brew. The Bullion, Fuggles, and Willamette all smelled so good, I couldn't decide between them, and figured since they were only going in for a minute, why not try all three! Well, it turned out so good, I'll be making quite a bit more!

I'll probably try this as an ale next. It was quite clean as a lager, though with a good hoppy aroma (not too much hops flavor...). Might try Whitbread ale yeast, or a clean-finishing Wyeast with some fruit subtleties. Also, might boil some of the finishing hops a bit longer to try to get some hops flavor. Good quenching Summer beer!
