I'm in the process of brewing this Summer Ale recipe that I threw together today.
5# Light pils LME
2# Malted wheat
1# Corn sugar
1.5 oz Hallertau @ 60 minutes
Any thoughts or suggestions?
what's the OG. you're going to get good attenuation with nottingham and probably don't want the ABV creaping up too high if you want it to be a summer session beer.
I won't know the OG until I chill it. I figure it might be a little on the high side for a summer but that's ok with me.
Looks like something between an American wheat and a cream ale. Yeah, should come out to be a good summer ale. I think you will get best results if you can ferment fairly low.
OG was 1.060. Maybe I'll call it Kolsch-45. The room I ferment in is about 60° so that should slow the fermenting down a little.
60 degrees may not slow nottingham down, but it will give you a cleaner yeast profile, which i think would be best.
