Absolutely love this Blonde Ale!!! Have made it Smoking' Hot with Habanero peppers adding more each time I brew it! Last time out I called it Smoking' Hot Blonde Virgin, added the heat the same way but finished it off with some cherry flavoring added in the racking vessel. Tasted the sweetness of the cherry over the front of the tongue then the got the heat toward the back of the mouth. The expressions on the faces of those who tried it without warning was priceless!!!!!
Delicious! I can't wait to brew again. Opened the 1st bottle after 2 1/2 weeks and it was already good. This blonde is rich with a good hop backbone.
This is a great beer...not too hoppy in taste. It is a very clean beer and an easy drink. It has become one of my favorites as well as my friends!!!!!
Brewed AG/WLP001 yeast/4 week ferment - Split into 2 -2.5 gal batches: one batch bottled with 1 oz apricot flavoring and the other batch kegged. After two weeks, the keg didn't have much taste; apricot had a bite. With these scenarios, you have to let it sit. After one month of the beer conditioning in the keg, it is quite delicious. Light color, very slight hint of malt. First sip is balanced, and then leaving a slight lingering of hops; I wish I converted the entire batch to apricot flavoring. Not a complex recipe by any means; simple, go-to beer. Let this one sit about 3-4 weeks after you rack it. Maybe 4-5 weeks with artificial flavoring. Oh....will be ordering again.
Did this for a easy summer beer. Cut the hops in 1/2 . Only did this because I am old and did not get into the resurgence of hoppy beers. The biggest problem is it goes down way to easy on a hot day and my friends know I have it on tap. Great and easy beer to make. Had it kegged and under pressure in a frig for about a month before I started drinking it. Not going to last 2 week, (hot summer). Very nice beer for picnic and bbq. Keep brewing.
