Hello! I'm reasonably new to brewing - about 5 months. What made me start is a combination of two facts: 1. I have some health issues that have forced me to nearly quit drinking. 2. I really like beer. We will put aside that 2 may have caused 1 if you don't mind. I figure I can drink two or three 2.5% beers on the weekend, but I can't seem to buy such a thing. So I started brewing to create one. I am looking to brew some good, flavorful, low ABV beer (see note on that). I'm a small-batch guy right now, brewing both 1 and 2.5 gallon batches with extract and specialty grains. Started with kits, but about the lowest ABV I can get in a kit is 3.2%, so I am trying some of my own recipes to see what I can do about that low ABV thing. I currently have a Scottish Light in the fermenter that should turn out to be about 2.5%, but we'll see about the flavor. Would love to do an NA, too, but that's a different kettle of fish. Could use some ideas and advice on doing what I'm doing. Help keep me from drinking nothing but O'Douls for all eternity. NOTE: I hear a lot of people saying that 5% is low ABV,, and calling such beers 'Session,' but that isn't at all low in my opinion. Three 5% beers, and I'm pretty lit, as I think most people are. Hell, Coors light is 4.1%, and one can get pretty wasted on it.
