Notes

This is a relatively simple blond ale recipe very similar to a Slovenian blond, but with one small twist: use chips from broken bat, along with some standard maple chips. The chips, and/or tea made from them, should be added after primary fermentation has ended. Rinse wood chips to remove excess debris, then place in microwave-safe container, add water to cover the chips, then add lemon juice and zest and boil to sanitize. Allow this to sit for 10-15 to create a tea, then add entire mix to fermenter.
