Auntie Mollie Lager

My little sister is turning 21 next month and I'm brewing the beer for her party. When asked what she wanted, she said, "something that tastes like PBR." I refuse to brew something I don't like, so this will be my take on an American lager. We'll see how it turns out.

8lbs gw 2row
.5 lbs maize

.5 oz nugget @60
1.5 cascade @5

Yeast: WLP862 Cry Havoc (new one)

Extra: .5 lbs white sugar

Glitem Free Schmutem Free

My little sister is turning 21 and she wanted me to make the beer for party. Since she's a college student in Portland she's a hipster, and hipsters are all gluten-free because for some reason it's cool to not be able to eat stuff. If that's true I am the complete opposite of cool because I eat all stuff.
6 lbs Rice syrup
2 lbs dark candi syrup
1 lbs flaked oats

1 oz Ctz @60
1 oz cascade @30
1 oz cascade @0


I had forgotten how easy
extract brewing is, I barely had to do anything
