The following beer recipe is featured in the January/February 2020 issue of Zymurgy magazine. Access this issue along with the archives with Zymurgy Online!

Joel Miller, 2019 GABF Pro-Am Competition Silver Medal, with Greg Fleehart of Precarious Beer Project.

Leicht is a beer that appeals to everyone, from the traditionally domestic beer drinkers to craft beer enthusiasts, Miller says. "It's a beer basically for everybody," Miller notes. This could be attributed to the simple recipe with a little bit of body, some bittering hops, overall balance, and low alcohol.

Fleehart describes the beer as similar to a low-alcohol Munich helles, with flavors of a lightly toasted baguette. "It's a really easy-drinking beer but with tons of flavor and texture," Fleehart says. "The yeast has a really nice ester, more character than your average lager yeast."
