Notes

The Brain : originally was supposed to be a cream ale except with 100% 2 row malt instead of using sugar to supplement. With the wy 1272 it came out fruity and hazy so i called it summer ale. after a while though the haze settled and it was kind of malty clean and clear, i started calling it blonde ale.
