If Cara Blonde is not available to you, use 10L. Galaxy is pivot-able to this recipe, I suggest not substituting for it. Works well with Kolsch yeasts too.

Fantastic Blonde recipe, probably my top summer beer.

Thanks this looks great! I used this recipe but made some small hop changes. Magnum at 60' . Then all the galaxy and mosaic at 10' and a 20minute whirl pool at 170.... The hops just smelled too good so I wound up at 40 IBUs

Thanks! I think I might move the balance between the Pilsner and 2 Row closer to 50/50, I just brewed it again and it came out super light.

Made this yesterday. Came in at 1.040 with my robobrew. Pre-fermentation taste is good.

Where is the mango?

Jeremiah White 06/03/2019 at 06:26pm
The mango comes from a faux aroma produced by the hop mixture at these precise temps. Try it, you will be pleasantly surprised.
