COTU belgian blonde
update jan 2019
Update they probably meant the wort was 1055 preboil. After brew day the OG was 1065 so in taking a little of the cane sugar out of the recipe (haven't added it yet)

(note added later : for this brew i only used the wort they provided which i believe was just 2row. even though this recipe lists specialty malts, i do not remember adding any such.)

copied from 2016 trustmonkey recipe. that batch turned out bad but im blaming the yeast / fermentation on it. will be getting mystery wort from center of the universe for a contest. the brewery says it will be 100% 2 row at 14 plato which is 1057 so this recipe lines up with that being that i could add the cane sugar. (i really dont want to have to add any DME). of course, this is a malty beer so i would be at the mercy of whatever malt bill they use for most of the flavor. might be fun to do it this way instead of covering it up with hops etc.

also im changing out the WY1214 for Safale T-58 to coincide with another ongoing experiment....should be fine...

copied from 2015's blinde recipe. came out with 5 gallons exactly but was under on gravity - 1.044 (without the sugar), wanted to hit 1.051. By chance I have some Pilsen LME so I will add enough to add 7 pts. Wort has been chilling for one day while yeast starter....starts. Adding the LME and pitching tonight (night after brew night)
