I tried brewing an American Pilsner once with a very light color, light
hopping and light body. It didn't turn out very well, probably due to
an infection. I understand that the lighter beers are more likely to
have this kind of problem.

A little reflection led me to the conclusion that I don't really want to
brew anything like BudMillobe anyway. It's pretty cheap to buy, and
doesn't really warrant the effort required to brew it.

My time and energy is going to be invested in brewing beers that *I*
like to drink. Anybody who makes remarks about "Brake Fluid" is welcome
to keep drinking that Wimpy Pasturized ___________ (fill in the blank)
to their hearts content. My homebrew is reserved for people who can
appreciate it.
