Default All-Grain - Hoppy blonde

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: 1272
Yeast Starter: yep
Batch Size (Gallons): 6
Original Gravity: 1045
Final Gravity: 1008
IBU: 41
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 4
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 20 days @ 68F
Tasting Notes: Delicious!

2000g MFB Special Aromatic Malt
2000g American Two-row Pale
500g American Wheat
500g CaraPils

50g Cascade (5.5%) @ 60
30g Cascade (5.5%) @ 20
30g Cascade (5.5%) @ 0 (steep for 20 mins @ ~90C before chilling)
60g Cascade (5.5%) dry

Mashed @ 155
1045OG 1008FG 4.9% ABV

One of my favourite brews of all time. Nice refreshing summer quencher, the sort of beer you can finish in 2 or 3 gulps. Classic cascade aroma and flavour profile, distinctly and pleasantly bitter, finishes with a slight bready malt note, sort of like Vienna. Best served at 50F.

this sounds good! i will put this on my list for this summer. with the heat rising around here i will need to use my wine cooler to keep the primary cooler. i love the idea of a low ABV, hoppy blonde for the summer months.

Haha... well this will be interesting. I decided to try this recipe tonite. But at the LHBS I asked for the Special Aromatic and looks like there was some confusion with the lady there because I'm pretty certain I got regular Aromatic. So this beer is going to end up being very dark and very malty, not what I was planning. Oh well, sometimes mistakes end up interesting.
