Beer Style: Blonde Ale
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons
After two weeks in the bottle, the carbonation had reached an acceptable level, but the taste was a little green. After another month the taste has mellowed out. This beer is turning into a favorite of my friends who don't appreciate my usual heavy ales. I enjoy it because it has more taste and body than BudMillCors!
The malt extract, honey, and 1 oz. of the hops were boiled in 3 gallons of water for 1 hour; the remainder of the hops were then added and steeped for 15 minutes. The wort was passed through a strainer into a plastic primary and diluted to 5 gallons. After reaching room temperature, the yeast was added. The intial SG was equal to 1.040. After 6 days in the primary (60-65 F) and 10 days in a glass secondary fermentor (60-65 F) the final SG was equal to 1.000 (Ed: ???, 1.010??). The beer was then primed with honey and bottled.
