I make gueuze. It's not that hard. Brew, transfer for aging, make sure airlock is full, wait, repeat, repeat, blend, bottle.
Light lagers are inherently hard.
But am I the only one who thinks that APA/IPA is actually hard? In my area, it seems like if you can brew a passable IPA or APA, you'll be a shoo in for a gold medal. Almost makes me want to brew one!
