Default Partial - Hopped up dirty blond

Original Gravity: 1.070
Final Gravity: 1.018
IBU: 34.9
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60

Tasting Notes: Starts out as normal BB but finishes with hop notes on pallet.

This is the best beer that I have brewed. First time was from a Belgium Blonde kit from the local HBS (Brew Hut, Aurora, CO). For this recipe I ran the ingredients into Beersmith and upped all the parameters to max for the style. I will attach the actual file as well, but it seems to not translate the same, the mash profile gets changed and the parameters show at a lower level with the attached file for some reason. This beer is a hit with all that have tasted it. I would recommend dry hopping in secondary, so maybe 28 in primary, 7 in secondary with dry hop.
