Default Lawnmower Blonde

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: US-05
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.044
Final Gravity: 1.009
IBU: 18
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 3.1
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 days, 62-65
Tasting Notes: Malty, crowd pleaser, constant rotation beer

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

Hops:
  • .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:

I used US-05. Any clean ale strain should work just fine, though.

I started with 7 gallons of wort, and had 5.5 gallons to transfer into my fermenter after the boil. I don't have my notes in front of me, but I did a BIAB full-volume mash using simplebiabcalculator.com to get strike temp and volume. I will post those numbers later today.

I just noticed, I made a big mistake on the grains. It was supposed to be 2.5 lbs Golden Promise, not Biscuit malt. Sorry about that! I mashed in 8 gallons, and my strike water was 153, but your mash procedure or equipment setup will dictate how you get the 7 gallons of wort into the boil kettle.
