Spring/Summer is coming quick!

I'm looking for a simple, light, crisp and refreshing all grain lawnmower recipe.

Does anyone have some recipes they'd care to share?  


Thanks!

12.0 oz Wheat, Torrified 4.33 %
8.0 oz Cara-Pils 2.89 %

Kolsch is a great one (my recipe is basically 95% pils, 5% wheal, 30 IBUs noble hops, kolsch yeast, 150 degrees single infusion, 90 min boil, pitch at 58, ferment 60-62, lager 2-4 weeks.)

But a good CAP or Cream Ale is what I make every year for summer.

Alabama Shine
OG 1.048
IBU ~37
12 Gallons

15 lbs Pilsner Malt
5 lbs Yellow Corn Grits (you can sub flaked maize)

1 oz Magnum (14aa) 60 min
1oz Liberty (4 aa) 20 min
1oz Liberty (4aa) 10 min

Lager (S-189) for CAP or Ale yeast (US-05) for Cream Ale

Mash in at 150-152 for 60 min, 90 min boil.

For lager ferment at 48 degrees for Cream Ale ferment at 58

Lager 2-4 weeks.

Pawtucket Patriot:
Keith,

How many packets of S-189 would you suggest using for a 5-gallon batch?  In your experience, is it as good as liquid lager strains?

I just brewed my first CAP last weekend and am fermenting it with Wyeast 2278 Czech Pilsner.  I'm planning on pitching another one on top of the cake next weekend.
