Notes

Experimental Brew to try using sake kasu produced by a local sake brewery. The goal is to have a fairly reasonable blonde ale as a backdrop to the kasu, with the hope that it will emphasize any possible rice, tropical, or fruity flavors.

I expect attenuation will be on the high end, due to the koji enzymes, and that this'll probably be a bit proofier than normal for a blonde ale; since my rig is a bit janky, and my efficiencies sometimes horrible, I'd rather overshoot than undershoot.

The grain bill was mostly purloined from Brulosophy's Best Blonde Ale (http://brulosophy.com/recipes/brulosophers-blonde-ale/), with some subs to use a "local" maltster (the Briess Munich is a stand-in for Blacklands Brown Field 10 Munich).

Loral and Mandarina were chosen to hopefully provide some fruit character without straying too far from blonde ale territory.

US05 should be fairly neutral, which is all that's needed.
