Dry Recipes?

Recommended Posts

Trying to make a "dry" MRB extract brew, but not sure what to use.

I want it to be clean and crisp, but I don't want it hoppy like an IPA. 

I've never had a Bud Dry or Molson Dry, but I assume these would be the examples?

 

Suggestions?

American Ale HME + 4oz carapils + 1 cup honey.  That's a good starting point.

i would vote for the horse's ass ale recipe. it's got honey plus the base is the Classic American Light HME. Pretty light, clean and dry recipe. I added some corn sugar the 1st time I brewed it and it was quite dry. American Ale HME is a bit on the heavy side for me, but I have used it several times.

You could use a saison yeast, the Belle Saison ferments it really dry. and it likes heat so no worries about cooling it down.

To keep it dry and limit maltiness, use booster instead of added malt. That will also dry it and give it some body and head retention without flavor. Also no off flavors you might get with sugar.

 

You could try the Pilsner or wheat HMEs fermented with the Belle Saison too.

The Lemon Drop Hop Saison I made a couple months ago was dry and lemony, I posted the recipe back then.

I second all the above advice, but when the guiding description is "crisp, clean, dry finish" I always suggest US-05: https://www.mrbeer.com/safale-us-05-dry-ale-yeast
