This blonde has been in primary for 17 days now and it's done at 1.007. The sample tasted really good and I can see it's going to turn out into a fine lawnmower beer. I'm just glad nothing went wrong. I know how hard it is to hide off flavors with a blonde, low IBU beer. There's something freeing about a recipe this simple when you start getting out of hand with 10-ingredient monsters.

Congrats! Keg the puppy and let me know how it turns out in 2 more weeks. My blonde just went in the fermenter. It is a little heavier, but lighter in color. I used Nottingham for mine.

Just a quick followup. This has been in the kegger for a few days and it's carbed now. I took it to a family BBQ this weekend and they went through a gallon in no time. It was widely accepted by BMC and craft brew drinkers alike. It's a winner. It's so cheap to make so I'm going to stock up on it come spring time.

Congrats! I kegged mine today after 11 days in the bucket. It finished at 1.007 too and I could taste the bitterness of that ounce of Hallertau Herzbrucker at 60 min. though. It should mellow after a couple weeks on gas I hope.

Beertools is putting mine at 17 IBU because I only boiled for 55 minutes. This is by far the least hoppy brew I've made. I think another 10 minutes of boil or a tenth of an ounce more would be perfect.

LME you multiply by .75
DME you multiply by .6

So you would use 6.375 lbs of LME to replace the 8.5 lbs 2-Row Brewers Malt or 5.1 lbs of DME

And just steep the .5 lbs 2-Row Caramel Malt 10L

The flavor is very neutral so fruiting would be fine.
