Thanks hethacker!

I didn't explain but I have a corn allergy. This recipe would probably be fine, but I've never used any corn products in my beers.

I carb with table sugar because its more predictable than honey. Or so I've read.

yeah, thats what i have read too, also looking at my chart here it says that cane sugar (at 45 - 48 points) is more fermentable than corn sugar (37 - 40 points) while honey is at 30 - 35 points.
btw, i am talking about gravity points per pound per gallon. hope it helps.

Wow at 4.7% ABV it's almost a session beer too! Very nice recipe I want to try this one out!

I ended up brewing something based off this as my first all grain batch a few weekends ago.
1lb Crystal 10L
3/4 lb Honey Malt
7 lbs of 2 row
1/2 oz Magnum (10-14%) @ 60
1/2oz Citra (14.1%) @ 10
1/2oz Citra (14.1%) @ 5
1oz Citra (14.1%) @ flameout and whirlpool hopstand for about 30 minutes
US-05

Carbonated up 5 days in, excellent head and lacing but flavors need to round off a bit, got that that catty green citra smell in the nose on day 5 but yesterday at day 12 in bottles it was quite improved. Turned out closer to a pale ale for me but made it for a guys get together while our SO/GFs are at a baby shower, shouldnt be shunned too bad by the BMC crowd Ill be sharing with. Going to tweak it a bit more and dial it in but a great summer type beer.

I brewed this back in July and finally got around to kegging it last Sunday. I decided to go ahead and tap it last night, and even though it’s not fully carbed yet this is fantastic already.

1/4lb Corn Sugar
1/4oz Mosaic (12.7%) @ 45
1/2oz Citra (14.1%) @ 10
1/2oz Citra (14.1%) @ 5
1oz Citra (14.1%) @ flameout
US-05

SG 1.042
23IBU
4.2ABV

Thought is that the Mosaic and Citra will give me a lot of tropical mango/grapefruit flavors, honey malt some sweetness, and the corn sugar help to dry and crisp it a bit. Do the proportions sound right?

Thanks for your input.

Sounds delicious, I like the Citra, Galaxy combo I used in my last Golden Ale. Super delicious, I also added all the hops at the 15 min mark in the boil which gave it intense flavor and aroma with no lingering bitterness but perceived bitterness. Its fantastic!! My grain bill was very similar and used honey malt, Came out delicious however I used a dart of Crystal 60L for golden color. Happy brewing!
