I'm trying this as my first all-grain and I have some grain questions (forgive my ignorance)

Pale Malt (2 Row) - Is "Golden Promis Pale Malt" the same thing or close enough?

Cara-Pils/Dextrine - Is Belgian Cara-Pils (5 - 10°L) the same? This is belgian, but beersmith shows it as US

Caramel/Crystal Malt(10L) - Is German "Cara-Foam" Light Crystal Malt (10°L) ok? Same question as above...this is German but beersmith shows US.

I'm just confused how the grains from this recipe translate to what I'm actually going to be buying. Here is a link to my LHBS that I'm going to visit tomorrow, in case I'm wrong on any of the above you can use this to point me in the right direction Thanks for the help!

Long time lurker, first time poster. Gotta say, this is one REALLY tasty brew. I made the extract version and Wyeast 1056 (there something in the notty I just don't like...vinegary aftertaste?), and I am genuinely scared to share because it will be come a neighborhood favorite.
Yummy

Just wanted to add that I made this last batch for a wedding and it was very popular! We had 3 beers on tap and this one had 4 gallons gone by the end of the reception. On top of that, I entered it in a statewide comp and won a bronze medal!

I will be brewing up a 10 gallon batch of this on Sunday.

In just 8 weeks, we will be participating in the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta This should be just right by then. 10 days of Balloons, Babes, Brats and Beer. I have been preparing for the event with an Irish Red Ale and a Robust Porter. I think this blond will make a nice balance for everyone. And if anyone don't like what I got, screw 'em, let them drink champagne. I think I will call this beer, "Lighter Than Air Blonde".

You need to look up BrewPastor. He has the balloon launch right out his back porch if I'm not mistaken.

Yep, we have chatted here some. Have yet to meet face to face tho.

I'm brewing the extract version but could not get Extra Light DME at the LHBS. I bought just regular Light DME. Think it will hurt the light color?

Grain
Hi bdaddy

I had a look at the website you posted.

They sell "Domestic Two-Row Pale (1.5°) per lb." which is what you want. Golden Promise is an English style malt which is similar, but a slightly different flavor profile that what this recipe calls for.

The Belgian Cara-Pils is fine.. except that website lists it as being a bit darker compared to other brands of cara-pils.

The German cara-foam I'm not sure about. I think they've mis-labeled it on the website... it probably should say "Carahell" which is 10L crystal and would be perfect for this recipe. Actual german cara-foam is about 2L in color. You might want to call them and clarify what it is.

Hope thats not too confusing!

Only recently have I stated to appreciate light beers with subtle flavors and this recipie turned out great. Perfect summertime beer.

I fermented at 70F in primary for two weeks and one week in the bottle. No strange flavors and it's almost totally clear. Got better than expected efficiency. The only problem is increased ABV of 5% comes through in the taste a bit. I'm thinking of a little coriander for the next batch. And maybe keeping the fermentation temp a little lower.

This recipe also seems like a nice clean slate for tweaks and changes to personalize taste. Anyone make changes they really like?

Just wanted to thank you for the easy and great recipe. I brewed this a little over a month ago and its been bottled almost two weeks. I tried one last night and I was surprised that it was perfectly carbed and tasted wonderful. The best all grain effort to date. I can't wait to try it after another week in the bottle and some time in the fridge. I need to get another batch going soon so I can enjoy it all through football season.
