    When you say light, do you mean 5% abv? More or less? I assume color wise you want to shoot for light color also. I would shoot for a solid mouthfeel though since everything else it cut back

    I wouldnt go below 40 ibu, but i would pick up moat of it with late additions because a light beer is goong to show astringency easy.

    yeah... I'm doin BIAB and I use this special calculator thing I found (its an excel spreadsheet) to calculate how much stuff I need to hit my gravities and IBUs. So far as long as I get close on the efficiency I put in it has accurately converted all the recipes. I just need the proportions of grains and the OG and I should be good. As well as the hop schedule... it converts it too...

    i would just swap the 60 in for the 15, it darkens it from an SRM 5 to 7.5 but unless you are really nailing the light colors, you won't see a difference. and dropping the amount with have a detrimental effect on flavor IMHO

    What would happen if I upped the wheat to half a pound? I've been doing this recently to get good head.

    i have the wheat in there for head retention. I don't think putting more than 1-2% of the bill is really required. but leaving all else equal it will boost gravity to about 1.056

    will it change the flavor? I really have a lot of unmalted wheat to get rid of....
