Blonde Ale


I would like to thank those fine people that replied with advice about my Honey-Wheat recipe. It will be racked and bottled soon, and I'll post the result.

I have been experimenting recently, trying to make an amber - red ale (Along the lines of a red dog clone) and have been moderately successfull with the following recipe.

My Friend George Shutelock has pronounced this recipe a Russian Red Bitter, and since it practically blew the lid of my fermenter, I dubbed it the "Red Russian Atomic Ale", after more consideration, since it does not run true to any given style, I have renamed it............ enjoy.

This ale is very lightly hopped, it does have a nice balance between the sweetness added by the crystal malt and the hops that were used. Next time I try this recipe (Which will be soon) I will use more hops to bring up the bitterness a little. But for now, I have a very nice red ale that is highly enjoyed by my friends that normally don't light darker beers.
