Just throwing this out there to see what people think. I'm not a big fan of corn in beer so I'm using rice flakes instead. I'm not a huge fan of lighter beers either and like my IPA's, porters and stouts, but I've been requested to make an introductory beer for friends and family that might not be able to appreciate the finer beers.
Est ABV: 5.2%
Batch size 6 gal
5 lbs Pale Malt
4 lbs Pilsner
2 lbs Rice, flaked
1.10 oz Willamette - 60 min (4.3%)
0.75 oz Willamette - 5 min (4.3%)
90 min boil, mash at 150
Ferment 2 weeks at 62.
Rogue Pacman yeast - mainly because I have it on hand, but its also highly attenuating, floculant and pretty neutral and clean. Have used it in the past with IPA's, APA's and stouts with good success.
Keg and carb at 2.6
