Im trying to clean out my closet and free up some space for new ingredients, so I wanted to try to brew something with only the stuff I have.
I came up with this recipe, I want a blonde lager-like (allthough I can't control my ferm temp so I'll ferment it like an ale), summery, session beer, but hoppier than a regular blonde or kölsch.
What do you guys think of this recipe:

Oh, I brew 10L (2.6gal) BIAB.
I have a pack of us-05 I will ferment it with.
And then I have a little citra that I thought of maybe dryhopping with?
what do you think, will the grain bill work? Does the balance between the grains and the hopps look ok?
