Lawnmower Blonde
1 Attachment(s)

This is an outstanding beer for summer days, sharing with friends, or just general thirst quenching. Added bonus: the shopping list is pretty cheap, so you can make plenty of it without breaking the bank.

Grain Bill:

  • 6 lbs US 2-Row
  • 2.5 lbs Golden Promise
*based on 80% efficiency

  • .25 oz Warrior (17.7 AA%) @ FWH
  • .5 oz Mt. Hood (5.4 AA%) @ 10

Mash at 149 for 60 minutes. Boil for 60 minutes, adding hops per schedule above. Chill, pitch 1 pack rehydrated US-05 @ 62F. Ferment at 63-65 for 2 weeks. Package, carbonating to 2.5 volumes CO2. This is easy and delicious. You can package it as soon as you are at a stable FG and the yeast has floc'd out, so if you need to rush a recipe to fill your pipeline this can easily be ready to keg in 7-10 days. I let mine go 14 days simply because it worked with my schedule.

Here's what it looks like:
