I am serving this batch of "Belgian Blonde" tomorrow at a party, and the taster I just had was great! It is a bit malty with a low bitterness, and the WLP400 adds a slightly tart note to the beer. I was aiming for a good, inoffensive, mellow beer that anyone who comes to the party can enjoy (read: sorta like BMC but actually good), and this beer exceeded all expectations.

Not to blow my own horn, but with each new style I try my homebrew keeps getting better and better!

This is the best thread EVAH!!!!!!!

Belgian yeasts fascinate me...they have amazing character. So pushing those amazingly flavorful yeasty beasties to their full potential is uber cool.

I just brewed a Belgian IPA yesterday:

67% Pils
14% Wheat Malt
5% Biscuit Malt
5% Honey Malt
9% Sucrose
WLP500

Simcoe @ FWH, Amarillo at 30, 20, and 10 min. Will dry hop with Simcoe, Amarillo

OG = 1061
BU:GU = 0.77

I pitched @ 62F to drive a more earthy profile vs. fruit. Can't wait to taste this one...
