Now that I have your attention..
I am one of those long time reader first time poster type..
I have brewed several extract and BIAB brews. I broke the cherry on the first AG brew last weekend. Used DFH 90min recipe on one of threads here...
I would now like to formulate my own recipe for a nice summer blond ale (hence the title)
Here is the recipe (output from BrewR app)
Style: Blonde Ale
Batch size: 5.0 gal
Boil volume: 6.5 gal
Bitterness (IBU): 34.6
Color (SRM): 6.0
6.50 lb Two-row (Canadian), 66.7% --> Base
1.50 lb Vienna (US), 19.0% --> for aroma and color
1.00 lb Wheat (US), 9.5% --> for flavor
1.00 lb Crystal 10L, 4.8% --> light honey-like sweetness
0.50 oz Perle (AA 8.3%, Pellet) 60 min, 15.8 IBU
0.50 oz Citra (AA 12.0%, Pellet) 15 min, 11.3 IBU
0.50 oz Amarillo (AA 8.0%, Pellet) 5 min, 3.0 IBU

As you can tell, I love my drink hoppy. All you beer connoisseurs and zymurgist. Please let me know what you think about the recipe.
Too much hop?
Wrong grain bill?
Too soon for me to be formulating a recipe?
