14 Brewing Light Hybrids – Malt German Pilsner Malt base for Kölsch American Malts for other styles Minimize crystal malts (undesirable residual sweetness) Use light mild un-hopped malt extracts

15 Brewing Light Hybrids – Adjuncts Use flaked maize and glucose to lighten body and create dry finish for Cream Ales Use American 2-row malt base for Blonde Ales Use Pilsner malt for Kölsch Use a 40-60% malted wheat for American Wheat Beer Substitute rye for some or all of the wheat for American Rye Beer

16 Brewing Light Hybrids – Hops Use low alpha acid noble hops or noble derivatives for Kölsch (Hallertau, Tettnang, Spalt, Hersbrucker, Mt. Hood) Any hop variety can be used sparingly for other Light Hybrids Finishing hops should be minimal if any

17 Brewing Light Hybrids– Water Soft water preferred for Cream Ales (RO Water tsp/5gal CaSO4) Water for other hybrids can vary San Diego filtered water okay – could be blended with RO water to soften the water

18 Brewing Light Hybrids– Yeast Use attenuative ale yeast – BJCP guidelines result in 76-84% attenuation Create a large yeast starter – Re-pitching from a previous fermentation is recommended for larger yeast pitch

19 Brewing Light Hybrids Mashing – Mash at low temperatures (149F) for dryer beer Boil – Minimize boil to avoid carmelization

20 Fermenting Light Hybrids Cool wort to fermentation temperature Aerate the wort vigorously – 100% oxygen Low fermenation temp for Kölsch (59-65F)
