12# Rahr 2-row
0.5# Belgian Caramel Pils (8L)
0.75 oz Magnum hops (12.3% AA) @ 60 min
WLP028 Ediburgh Ale Yeast (2L starter)
Batch size: 6 gallons.
Ferment at 67F.
IBU: 31 (Tinseth - Beersmith)
Mash at 150F for 60 minutes.
Appearance: This beer is about 4 SRM. Pretty clear but with a bit of cloudiness. White head with medium retention. Not much lacing.
Aroma: Malt forward. Slight noble hops aroma.
Taste: Again malt forward. The beer finishes with very pleasant floral noble hop notes. Very clean; no esters or diacetyl. Almost like a German lager. Bitterness is very smooth due to low cohumulone hop. No bitter bite at all.
Mouthfeel: This is a bigger blonde. Not a lawn mower beer. Finished pretty dry.
