This is my take on New Belgium's Hoptober Golden Ale. It's my definition of a perfect Fall ale. Ingredients can be found here: http://www.newbelgium.com/beer/detai...5-1a2721d12236



3lb Wheat
1lb Light(pale)


2lb Rye
2lb oats(flaked)
8oz Crystal 80L

Hop Bill:

1oz Centennial
1oz Willamette
1oz Glacier


Steep Specialty Grains then bring to a 60 Min boil.

60: Add LME and .5 oz of Centennial Hops
45: Add .5 Willamette
30: Add .25 Centennial
15: Add .5 Glacier
5 or Flameout: Add remaining .25 Centennial, .5 Glacier and .5 Willamette

Yeast Pitch Temp Suggest 60-70f

*note i played with some of the hop addition times on this batch and depending on your taste you might want to as well, didn't dry hop because i think the beer will have enough aroma from late hop additions.
