Beer Style: Lite American Lager  (1A)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 10.5 US gallons

Lite American Lager
Beer Color


Very clear & light in color. Tasty although jury is still out on Tettnang hops. Took over an hour to chill to pitching temperature. Steeped hops over extended period of time adds IBUs not desired. Adjust hop addition or change equipment profile to improve taste. IBUs too high for style & for my wife. 5.1% ABV.
