Has anyone aged this recipe? I'm assuming you would just loose some hop flavor/bitterness.

I have two kegs that will be about 3 months old when they are tapped(full pipeline)

That's weird. When I bottle, I usually have a better result in the 16/22oz bottles. I always contributed this to shooting for the low carb content on my part ant the greater liquid volume producing a little more carbonation.

Are you kidding? Taste this brew after a few weeks and tell me who has the self discipline to age it? It screams "Drink me now!" Ya know, like when the lady says now or.....Well you know!

I made this beer with motueka hops and brought it to a friends cabin this weekend. It was a huge hit! I got a ton of compliments, even from the guys that are more into BMC. I will definitely be making this again, probably with the recommended hops this time.

Make sure you mix the priming sugar well into the wort without oxygenating it. When I used to bottle I noticed this same problem when I did not swirl the wort and priming sugar very lightly with the racking cane to combine when in the bottling bucket. This could be your problem.

Thank you Biemuncher for this recipe. I have made it 6 times in the last year, and every person I know who usually drinks BMC and has tried it always asks "You got any more of that blonde beer left?"

Keeps them away from the good stuff

First attempt at AG, seemed to be an epic failure. Temps all over the place. BIAB not working for me. Sparge water temp off. Did what I could as I went along (think...Titanic....). OG way low. Picked up a pound of DME for the hell of it. Sample tasted pretty astringent, figured I messed it up, but fermented it anyway for the hell of it. Tasted a sample later to do FG....Actually tasted pretty damn good! Bottled it, and am waiting on it. Whan I want to pull a second sample to try warm and flat, it's a good sign. Now, the mastun and braid are finished, many AG videos watched, so am planning on re-brewing to see how that compares. I knew I should have just bought that 20 pound bag of grain........
