Great base recipe for blonde ale.We made a couple of changes: we omitted the orange zest, and used White Labs WLP090 San Diego Super Yeast. We kegged our beer after 7 days of fermentation, and after almost 3 weeks of keg conditioning it's crisp, refreshing, and delicious! Highly recommended for a summer beer.

I really don't want to review my own recipe. I personally really like it. I am giving this three stars, because I realize I didn't put in the boil size (2.5 gallons), and I couldn't figure out how to go back and edit it. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as the people i have shared it with, and the positive feedback i have gotten.
