I think i may do this again. But fruit it.

I've done a few other blonde fruit beers, and the blonde base just doesn't seem quite right. I like this blonde better, so im going to give it a shot.

Any recommended hop change for a mulberry blonde? Im planning on OPs hop schedule, just a slightly reduced ibu. But if someone thinks bullion would be complimentary, I might wing that.
Also thinking of doing wyeast kolsch that I have in my bank.

After bottle conditioning for three weeks, I was able to enjoy my first pint last night. Very good beer. I will definitely be brewing this one again.

Bottled this tonight after a quick 14 day primary and it's beautiful. My SG was a point high (1.040), but my I hit my FG on the nose which put's my ABV at 4.19%. Taste is clean and crisp, but a tad yeasty considering the short ferment, but I can tell this will be a very nice quencher for the warm weather after it carbs and goes in my fridge. I can only imagine how easy this will go down when ice cold after mowing the lawn... Thanks for the recipe.

Is there any commercial/craft beer to compare this to?

Probably. It's a very easy drinking beer, something I'd grab at a time when a light beer would be good, but so much better tasting and satisfying.

It's great during hot weather or when you're eating something you don't want overpowered by the beer and just want a brew to wash down the food.

I really don't want to compare to the BMC beers because it really is a lot better, but it's a great substitute.

I just kicked a keg of this and I need to get going on filling it back up.

So, you might call it a quality complex light beer?

Ok I have read so many good things about this beer that I just had to try it. Brewing a batch right now with a slightly modified recipe. Really looking forward to trying this one out. Will update when I crack the first bottle.
