OK, I have my first two brews in the fermenters and none ready to drink, yet I'm thinking of the 3rd already. I'm thinking of something a little lighter that the wife might actually drink. I put this together to try and make a Belgian Blonde that will be fairly easy to make with extracts/partial mash. I appreciate any thoughts/changes:
(1.0) lb. 2-row Pilsner Malt
(1.0) lbs. Wheat Malt, Belgian
(0.5) lbs. Wheat flaked
(0.5) lbs. caramel 10L
(3.3) lbs. Light Pils LME
(3.3) lbs. Golden Light LME
(2) oz. Willamette hops (1 oz. at 60 minutes, 1 at dry hop 1 week prior to bottle)
Yeast = T58
Hoping to get an OG of between 1.052 and 1.055 and FG of around 1.010 to 1.015
60 minute partial mash of all grains at 150 - 155 degrees in 3/4 - 1 gallon of water.
sparge in 3.25 gallons of water at 170 degrees.
75 minute boil with the Light Pils LME added right away but the Golden LME added late (or should I go all Light Pils?).
Revised. And yes, I'm going more for a Blonde.
