I want to brew a light alcohol beer for one of my family for the Summer. I am a kit brewer at the moment. I am open to all suggestions for any light alcohol beers that anyone may have brewed.

Cheers

;)

how light % alc

the last low alc i made was a can of goo (coopers lager)
250 grms of dme 250grms dextros and dryhopped in a secondary before priming for one week to clear and add aroma some cascade hops 20 grms.
was only about 3% from memory and tasted ok but not alot of body .
if i was to do this again i would only make an 18 ltr batch .
but i think that might increase the body but the alcohol should stay the same as the sugar content wouldnt change would that be correct ?

No, if you reduce the amount of water, the percentage of alcohol by volume will increase. Less water so more concentrated. It will be stronger! :chug:

One of my favourites was a Coopers Lager brewed to 20 litres.
Used 150gm dextrose and 150gm wheat spray malt.
Boiled this 15 mins with 10gm Hallertau and added to the kit.
Had a bit of body, no overly bitter, but a good flavour
