Default Beach Bum Ale

OK, on another board there was some discussions about Beach Bum Ale by Anheiser Busch. Its a new seasonal by AB, and its actually a pretty decent blonde ale. I posed the question of formulating a recipe.

Now, what i learned of the AB site was the following:

-Blonde Ale
-5.7%ABV
-Pale and Caramel Malts
-Alsace, Hallertau, and Cascade Hops

So, here is my first attempt...
Ingredients

Amount Item Type % or IBU
3.25 lb Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM) Dry Extract 40.6 %
4.00 lb Pale Liquid Extract (8.0 SRM) Extract 50.0 %
0.75 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L (20.0 SRM) Grain 9.4 %
1.00 oz Strisslespalt [4.00%] (60 min) Hops 12.2 IBU
1.00 oz Hallertauer [4.80%] (30 min) Hops 7.4 IBU
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50%] (10 min) Hops 3.3 IBU
1 Pkgs American Ale (Wyeast Labs #1056) Yeast-Ale



Beer Profile

Est Original Gravity: 1.058 SG
Measured Original Gravity: 0.000 SG
Est Final Gravity: 1.014 SG Measured Final Gravity: 0.000 SG
Estimated Alcohol by Vol: 5.7 % Actual Alcohol by Vol: 0.0 %
Bitterness: 22.9 IBU Calories: 0 cal/pint
Est Color: 7.9 SRM Color: Color

Feel free to correct/change/laugh...I didn't get any real feedback on the other baord, so i thought I would try here.

Doesn't look like an "Indian" pale ale to me.

I'll look at this recipe more in a little while and consider what you've done and how I remember it tasting. It was a pretty decent beer, actually.

Actually, I think it is a Double Bud.

Yeah, I remember laughing at that. Not only did he call it Indian...its about as far removed from an IPA as you can get.

Any help would be benificial. I am headed to the LHBS this weekend and want to pick up ingredients for this and my VBIP.

Hey, for Budweiser, 23 IBU might as well be an IIPA!

Ok, based on some other feedback and some recall, I made some tweaks. Even though the three different hops are used, not pops out. So, my changes are a late add of the bulk of the extract (~25min) for color.....and a blend of the three hops to be added at 60/20/5min. Here is my final recipe, to be brewed possibly next week.

Hmm, I think your going to get a good beer. Never heard of this beer but your recipe looks nice. AB having a 5.7% ABV beer?? Come-on!!

I like your thinking on the hop additions...and 60/20/5 is a good combo?

I think it will work pretty well. I am intrigued as this will be my first ever recipe from scratch. I think the 60/20/5 hop schedule will give a nice balance, giving the IBU's I want and a smooth aroma. I will report out after i make this one.

A also plan on using the cake form this to kick-start my Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter.
