And I wanted thoughts before I brewed it.
I'm hoping for a beer like Great Divide's Belgica, but smaller. It's a Belgian IPA, and it clocks in a little better than 7%. I want a drinkable summer beer in this vein.
3.15 lbs Pilsen LME
3.15 lbs Gold LME
.5 lbs Crystal 75
.5 lbs Belgian Caramel Pils
60 mins 0.5 oz Warrior pellet 17.9
10 mins 1.0 oz Cascade pellet 5.5
7 days 1.0 oz Cascade pellet 5.5 dry hop
Wyeast 1388 Belgian Strong Ale Yeast
The hops are what I have on hand, and I read that the Belgica has a blend of American and European malts, so that's the reason for the mix.
Thoughts? I've not seen many recipes mix malts like this, so I'm wondering if I've just wandered out on my own lunatic island, or it's just something I've not seen.
I appreciate any and all feedback.
