Default Partial - Mischief's Belgian Blonde

Recipe Type: Partial Mash
Yeast: WY1214
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.063
Final Gravity: 1.010
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14

I'm sat here with the temperature well up and I just cracked open the first bottle of this, and it's a very tasty, very refreshing beer. Good enough to share, but this is the first recipe I've thought worth sharing, so please be gentle...

The crystal hops make for an interesting nose and mix well with the spices to give a combination floral/fruity edge. The rye (added after trying Sterling Gold) makes for a touch more spice - maybe a touch excessive for some, but try it cold on a hot day and I'll guarantee you'll be glad you brewed it.

If I've missed any important details, please let me know.

Mischief is my cat. (In the photo in the avatar).

This recipe isn't really a direct clone of anyone else's as far as I know. To be honest, I haven't brewed a batch of this in a couple of years. Maybe I should, we've got a few months of warm days left.
