Beer Style: Blonde Ale (6B)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons

Blonde Ale

Description:

Here's my honey-wheat recipe (extract). The yeast I used was cultivated from a Fransiskaner Hefe-Weissbier. I'm unsure if this is a bottling yeast, but the resulting beer has a light body and good head retention. A nice drinkable summer beer (IMHO).In retrospect I'd be inclined to use 1 lb of a stronger honey (Australian blue gum ;-) and 1lb of dry malt extract to give better body.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can Munton&Fison's Premiere Weizen
  • 2 lbs Light honey (strawberry clover)
  • 1 lb Dextrose
  • A suitable Weizen yeast (preferably liquid)
  • 3/4 cup sugar or equivalent malt extract

Procedure:

Boil honey, Weizen extract and dextrose for 15 minutes in 1.5 gal water. Tip into fermenter, and add water to make up 5 gal. Allow to cool and add yeast. Fermentation should be complete in around 3-4 days. Bottle with priming sugar.
