Date: 1992-04-02 04:13:01 GMT

This may be the best beer I've ever brewed. It is without question
the lightest.

3.5 lbs. Laaglander Dry extra light malt.
1 lb. really good fragrant clover honey.
8 grams Galena hops (8% alpha, for boil).
1/2 oz. Fuggles, DRY HOP ONLY.
Wyeast American Ale yeast

Boil water, malt, honey, and galena hops. Cool, transfer to
fermenter, preferably with blow-off tube, and add started yeast.
After krausen subsides, rack to carboy with Fuggles in it, ferment
until hydrometer readings stabilize, about 5 days, probably. Bottle.
Drink young.

Primary fermentation should be around 68-71 degrees fahrenheit.
Secondary should be closer to 61-63.

This is an extremely estery beer ... heavy on the pear and raspberry.
If you want to understand the difference between ale and lager, brew
this one. It is the epitome of "fruity". The slight hop aroma and
very mild bitterness, tied with the lightness of the beer, really
allow the esters to shine through; I suspect the honey aided them

This is the easiest drinking beer I've ever made. Low alcohol, too.
make it make it make it make it make it.
