Easy and Delicious Lawnmower/Party Beer
« on: May 17, 2010, 11:57:25 am »
Just wanted to share a brew that turned out great.  It was meant to be a bit lower in gravity, but I think the package of LME was mislabeled.  It still turned out light and easy to drink, but about 8% abv and with a nice little complexity.  Total sneak attack, though, and it's a good idea to have a couple chili dogs or a burger in your stomach when you start drinking.

This was meant to be a cream ale, but maybe it's more like a pre-prohibition cream ale because of the high gravity.  I made it for a baby shower and the guys loved it.  Put it up on my blog, too.  (Beware, blog is lame.)
