A buddy was over yesterday for a couple beers and he said I should brew a lower abv beer so he could drink more without worrying about driving home...a lawnmower, poolside pilsner kind of thing...Got me thinking.
My current pils recipe comes in just a little below 5 abv. I could easily reduce the grain bill by a couple pounds to get it under 4 abv...thinking something in the 3.5 range.
Has anyone done something like this? I guess my concern is that it will be TOO light bodied, flavorless, bla bla...but when we were talking about it I realized it would still be better than your average commercially available BMC lite american pils.
Any thoughts or experiences appreciated...
