I looking for some comments on my 1st recipe. I've got a couple of heavy brews fermenting now and I'm looking for something light and crisp for hot summer days.

Hopville link

5 gallon batch. Full boil

6 lbs - Northern Brewer Wheat Malt Syrup
1 lbs - Briess Sparkling Amber DME

1.0oz - cascade leaf hops - 60 min boil
1.0oz - cascade leaf hops - 1 min boil

Lemon Zest (1 lemon, 5 min boil)

Wyeast American Ale II (1272)

1.050 OG
1.013 FG
19.8 IBUs
4.9% ABV
165 calories/12 oz serving.
Edit. #1
Changed amber LME to DME, just a typo
Changed from 1056 to 1272 yeast
Lemon zest as recommended by BigB

One lemon... don't use that dehydrated crap... zest a fresh lemon. Add at 5 minutes remaining in the boil.
I love the sound of an airlock bubbling in the morning. It sounds like.....VICTORY.
