OK, on another board there was some discussions about Beach Bum Ale by Anheiser Busch. Its a new seasonal by AB, and its actually a pretty decent blonde ale. I posed the question of formulating a recipe.
Now, what i learned of the AB site was the following:
-Pale and Caramel Malts
-Alsace, Hallertau, and Cascade Hops
So, here is my first attempt...
Amount Item Type % or IBU
3.25 lb Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM) Dry Extract 40.6 %
4.00 lb Pale Liquid Extract (8.0 SRM) Extract 50.0 %
0.75 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L (20.0 SRM) Grain 9.4 %
1.00 oz Strisslespalt [4.00%] (60 min) Hops 12.2 IBU
1.00 oz Hallertauer [4.80%] (30 min) Hops 7.4 IBU
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50%] (10 min) Hops 3.3 IBU
1 Pkgs American Ale (Wyeast Labs #1056) Yeast-Ale

Feel free to correct/change/laugh...I didn't get any real feedback on the other baord, so i thought I would try here.
