Notes

Brew steps are the same as Raspberry Wheat notes without the fruit. Secondary fermentation is up to you. It’s seems like a good idea to move it off the yeast cake after aggressive fermentation is done (after first 2-3days).

This batch was excellent! I'm going to brew this again straight away! I may reduce ABV to 5.8% though, she packed quite a punch :)

Great beer, higher ABV but it tastes great. A nice simple blonde ale.
