#69: Light #2

Eons ago, I made my first cut at a Light beer, using a Munton's Light LME and ale yeast. This was way back on my 20th brewday.  Seeing that this time I had the Budweiser lager yeast at my disposal, I decided to take another swing at this using the American Light HME. Dropped some remaining Mt. Hood at flameout. Hit the OG this time. Go figure. 

Should be tasty...

  1. Looks like you've been a busy brewer the past few days.

  2. Trying to use all of this yeast before it expires... Looking at a handful of others during the break. The problem is going to be where to store all of this once it's in bottles...
