After reading my reply to Todd Enders <enders@plains.NoDak.edu> posting
about which-brews-can-budmillobe-drinkers-handle-and-not-choke, I
realized that I had been a little harsh. I decided to wait a bit, just
to see what kind of response would appear.

To be frank, I was surprised that I didn't get seriously flamed for
being so self rightous. Is everybody so hostile towards the uneducated
that they can't even post a "Hey Bob! Lighten Up!"?

I'd like to ask if anyone has had any luck brewing "lite" style beers.
Is it possible? My one (bad) experience in this arena was an infected
light lager that tasted truely nasty. Can this stuff be brewed at home,
or is the risk of infection just too great? My best beers have all been
in the O.G. range of 1.040-060, so I'm not sure I could do a good job at
1.020-030. Any hints?

On a lighter note (pun intended), the most popular single word
description of American Style Mass Produced Pilsner would appear to be
"Swill." (for those of you who are counting).
