Standard American Lager

Description:

A fine upstanding young American known as Jeff Renner (nerenner@umich.edu) wrote at great length about his " ***Great Success in Recreating Classic American Pilsner , a Shamefully Neglected Style!***" . I too read Dr. Fix's article with great interest and formulated a recipe for a "corn beer'. I loved it. My thirsty freeloading friends loved it. And I agree with Jeff that red blooded Americans should learn to love it again. This recipe is a direct adaptation from the Brewing Techniques article by Dr. Fix.
