Recipe Type: Partial Mash   
Yeast: WLP005   
Yeast Starter: 2 Quarts   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.081   
Final Gravity: 1.010   
IBU: 45   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: Deep Amber   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 @ 72*F   
Tasting Notes: Slightly fruity, but clean. Tons of citrus and starburst aroma, with a hint of pine.   

A simple recipe, but one of my favorites as it was my first ever homebrew. A great way to get your feet wet, with excellent results.

Bring 2.5 gallons of water to 160*F. Steep the following grains for 20 mins:

8 oz Caramel Malt 60L
4 oz Carapils

Remove grains and bring to a boil

Then add:

10lbs Golden Light LME
1lbs corn sugar

Boil for 60 mins.

Hop Schedule:

45 min- 2 oz Columbus
15 min- 2 oz Columbus
0 min- 2 oz Simcoe
Dry hop- 2 oz Cascade directly to primary fermenter 10-7 days before bottling.

The grain bill here....those amounts just seem rather small compared to what I've seen in other brews. Just wanted to make sure that they were accurate and not a typo.

Also, thoughts on subbing 1lb of honey for the corn sugar? Should up the gravity and abv a bit, but I'm curious if it would help impart an additional floral note.

Hello, this thread is 2 y/o lol.

Boiling honey will likely disperse all its aroma, and honey ferments dry. Boiled honey, corn sugar or table sugar will yield similar results in a beer like this. The special malt quantities are low because the OP is also adding 10 lbs lme, which also contains spec malts.

X large beers like this often have very simple grain bills, the OG on this is very high, and LME is not all that fermentable.

A lb of honey is comparable to a lb of CS as far as fermentables, plus minus.
