Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: US-05   
Yeast Starter: No   
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: No   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.053   
Final Gravity: 1.012   
IBU: 20IBU   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: ~6 SRM   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 Days @ 65F   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 Days @ 38F   
Tasting Notes: Grainy at the start with a nice citrus/tropical fruit flavor.   

Based on 75% Efficiency

Grain

84.2% 8.00 lbs. Pale Ale Malt (Rahr)
10.5% 1.00 lbs. Flaked Soft White Wheat
5.3% 0.50 lbs. Honey Malt

Hops

0.50 oz. Amarillo Gold FWH
2.00 oz. Citra Dry Hop

Mash

Single infusion for 60 minutes at 150F.

I keg this one, after one week at 65F the beer has always been at it's terminal gravity. I put it in the keg and chill it down and let it carb up for two weeks. By the time I do this I get pretty good clarity.

I dry hop in the keg, if you were to bottle it I would probably do it for a week and see where that gets you.

Seeing this cracked me up. I just did a batch that is almost the same grain bill except I used malted wheat @ 1.5lbs. Just put it in a keg on Sunday and my first thought was, that's not so blonde. I used all Saaz in three additions. Also US-05.

I get great responses for it every time I make it. I made it for 4th of July last year and we killed the keg within 2 hours.

Here is a photo of the glass I'm drinking right now.
