Notes

Late spring is heating up so this is a simple Blonde Ale to sip on the patio after a long day at work, mowing the lawn, or just to watch the sunset. Don't really need a reason for great homebrew, do I?

4 of 5

Gave it a good long time in primary - 23 days. Cold crashed @34 F overnight and kegged up at 12 psi. First time brewing with Pilsner Malt and I can really taste the bite. Should mellow with a bit of age.
10 gal batch split into two 5 gal cornies.
O.G. : 1.050. F.G. : 1.010 (5.25%)
