    This beer label brought a smile to my face and pride in my heart. Can you talk a little about the story behind the name? #salud #migenteesmagnifico

    When brewing with corn as an adjunct, and I'm assuming a major one at that, in conjunction with Pilsner malt, have you needed to make any allowances for mouthfeel and head retention due to protein levels? The original CAPs at least utilized 6 row to alleviate any such issues?

    I ask because I've had a few other beers made similarly and they had pretty much zero head retention and were carbonated like soda, even though the flavor was spot on.

    I'm looking forward to trying this one and thanks for participating! :beers:

    Enjoying this beer! What yeast was used and how long do you lager it for?

    I'm getting a hint of lime in the beer. Is there any lime?

    How did you land on the blue corn? What about that corn variety made you decide to use that one?

    Totally add some lime to the Para Mi Gente! Something as cool as maize, like kaffir lime
