Sam Adams Summer Ale
 
Anyone have a picture of a Sam Adams Summer Ale poured in a glass? I'm brewing AHS's clone now and it's in the primary, but it looks darker than i remember it being. I haven't had it since last summer, but something doesn't look right to me.

Do you mind posting the recipe? I'm about to brew my second take on this beer and would like to compare recipes. Oh, what did you use for yeast?

P.S. sorry, I do not have a picture either.

Only my second brew so I used a kit from AHS.

Didja brew all grain, extract or minimash?

The kit came with a container of extract and a small bag of grains that steeped for 30 minutes.

Can you post the AHBS recipe. I think I might be making a sam summer ale next, but if I can get the recipe, I could probably do it cheaper than AHB. :ban:

I just brewed this tonight. Hopefully it comes out good!

Extract Recipe:

Steeped for 30mins:
.5 lb Wheat Malt
.5 lb 2-Row


7.5 Lbs Wheat Extract

1oz Hallertau Hops (60 Mins)
.5 oz Paradise Seeds (15 Mins)
.5 oz Spalt Hops (15 Mins)
2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Zest(15 Mins)
.5 oz Spalt Hops (5 Mins)

They give 3 yeast options:
White Labs Belgian Wit #00015
Wyeast Belgian Wit #00071
Safbrew T-58 #00401


I used the White Labs.




Note to Mods: I don't know if this is wrong to post this recipe, if it is please delete it.

The problem I'm finding is in the yeast. All recipes for this brew say to use Belgian Wit yeasts. I've been drinking my clone of Sam Saummer and it's delicious, but that Belgian flavor is very out of place. I had a real SASA last night and it certainly was without those tart belgian flavors...
