WLP001, I'm sure US-05 will yield similar results.

I see, I have Wyeast 1056. Should be close as well.

I finally got around to brewing this again, except using the new WLP 090 yeast. I'm drinking the first fully-carbed pint from the keg. I forgot how much I love this beer! The MO really came through this time and it's wonderful. I'd recommend this recipe to a friend.

I'm extremely happy with the way it turned out - dry and medium-light bodied, with a lasting head. Easily my favorite beer i've ever made. Grain bill of a blonde, more hops than many ipas. I kicked the five gallon batch in just under two weeks!

Captain greencoat's bitter blonde

4.5 lb 2-row
2.7 lb maris otter
1 lb carapils

mash @ 152*f for 75 min
mash in w/ 3.1 gal @ 163*f, rest for 75 min.
Sparge w/ 4.6 gal @ 176*f.

Boil time!

60 minute boil

0.5 oz cascade (7.5% aa) @ 60 min
1.5 oz cascade (7.5% aa) @ 20 min
2 oz cascade (7.5% aa) @ 15 min
irish moss @ 15 min
1 oz centennial (11.6% aa) @ 10 min
1 oz centennial (11.6% aa) @ 5 min

ferment at 65*f for 3 weeks, no secondary needed.

This stuff is deliciously drinkable, and at ~4.2%abv, you can have plenty of pints. I'll be brewing this one again as soon as i've got the carboy space open. Brewpal calculates it at 91ibus, but there's no way that's possible. It's got tons of hop flavor, but just the right amount of bitterness.

Cheers!

Anyone have an Extract or Partial Mash version of this one. Might be a nice beer for the wife, she likes light bitter beer (her favourite is a Bitter Rye).

I'd do a partial mash, but just replace the 2-Row with a can of the lightest LME you can find. The MO won't have any issues converting itself.

I have been looking for something that has good hop flavor, but is lighter...this seems perfect. I just placed order for my lhbs. I cant wait to brew and have this!
