Awesome...shoot me some pictures and the recipe, I would love to give it a try!

Dont have any pics yet, will post em when the brews ready. Heres the recipe...

Airhead Blonde Ale

6gal OG 1.042 FG 1.008 IBU 22.5 SRM 4.2

Grain Bill....Mashed @ 150 - 1 hour

9# 2 Row or GP, havent decided yet
.5# Honey Malt

Boil

.5 oz Motueka @ 60 min
.5 oz Motueka @ 10 min + .25 oz Citra @ 10 min
.5 oz Motueka @ 5 min + .25 oz Citra @ 5 min

Fermentation

Ferment in mid 60's
1 pack of Us05 yeast
*Debating on dry hopping a little as well. Im making this as my AHA club contest entry for the light hybrid category so im thinking omitting the dry hop addition might be more accurate to style.

So how potent is the lime flavor. ? I just sampled mine after 2weeks bottled. And im hoping the lime mellows a bit. I know I saw some posts that had little to zero lime taste and I have almost too much. Weird....

(Slim I know you said condition for a month )

Mine faded pretty quickly after bottling. At bottling, I was worried. It's perfect now.

For bottling...3-3-1...3 weeks ferment/condition, 3 weeks in a bottle and 1 day to 1 week in the refrigerator....the lime should turn in to a after taste thats very suttle, I often tell brewers...leave it alone, dont sample it until its done...why because its caused unnecessary stress...you made freaking beer, now its a question of good or great! Summary, let it play out...you will love it in the end and if you dont then you did something wrong....j/k!

This was my second time that I brewed this and it has been great both times! Even using the Golden Promise, it still turned out delicious!

Thanks again for the recipe Slim!

Just finished carbing mine and tried it last night. Great beer, the lime flavor is perfect not too strong. My wife says I need to keep that one on tap for her all the time.
