Welcome Mark!

Hope you enjoy the fourms and the wonderful hobby of homebrewing.
Will you be using extract only...or extract and grains...or all grain? I would imagine that you would want to start by using extracts. I'll post a recipe for this brew soon...just give me a while to look it up. Molsen used to be one of my fav beers....until I really discovered REAL Beer...LOL!! I haven't had one in a long time but I do remember it. I'll see what I can come up with for you. Hang in there and enjoy the boards!

Here is a recipe package that you can buy that should be similat to Molson. I'd probably go with one of the liquid yeasts if I wanted it to taste more like Molson, but the dry yeast would be easier for a beginner.

Im curious why you would say dry yeast is easier. I haven't made too many beers (only about 5) and i've always used liquid yeast. I don't do anything special and all but once i've had good fermentation. I was thinking of using a starter on my next brew, but the homebrew store i went to said there was no need unless i was making a beer with high alc. like a belgian. He just suggested using a yeast nutrient.

Id like to hear what others have to say about that.

Thanks

I'd recommend just using a smack pack.

A package of liquid yeast has about half the yeast needed to completely ferrment 5 gal of a beer in the 1.050 range. While this can work, it's less than ideal and can particularly be a problem in a beer like this that you want to have a clean crisp taste.

Underpitching yeast can result in:
