I've postponed my brew day for 2 weeks in a row. Cranking up the burners this Saturday. I have enought ingredients to.do a double batch, and I just might do it. One with Wyeast 1056, and the other with Wyeast 1332. Can't wait!

Any thoughts on PacMan from Wyeast? I've never tried that. What do you think?

I'll keep the hop schedule exact with BM's original recipe. I like to change one thing at a time so I can tell the difference.

I always find it amazing how quickly this stuff goes in the keg. No party's or get together and the latest keg is almost gone after 1 week. There are only 2 regular beer drinkers in my house. 5 gallons of beer in 1 week........................ that's a lot of beer.

Im looking for a good spring/summer brew to make here pretty soon. I love Kona Big Wave and it sounds like your brew is a pretty close version. From Kona's Website:

BITTERNESS: 21 IBU
ALCOHOL BY VOLUME: 4.4%
ORIGINAL GRAVITY: 10.3 P (1.041 SG)
MALTS: PALE (PREMIUM 2-ROW), CARAMEL
HOPS: GALAXY, CITRA


Have you ever had Big Wave? Similar to yours at all?

I'm not Biermuncher but I figured I'd answer your fairly easy question.

Blondes have light malt character. So you could probably use BM's recipe but switch out the centennial and cascade with galaxy and citra. I'd bet it will get you close to what you're looking for.

SWMBO loves this beer.

I've made it twice, but now she is ready for a change. She asked if I could turn it into a strawberry blonde.

Other than adding 6-7 lbs of strawberries to a secondary, any thoughts on other changes to the recipe? Is that too many strawberries? Additional hops to offset the extra sweetness?

I do AG brewing, so could also mess with the grain bill if I wanted.

I plan on brewing next week sometime. Thanks for any input.

I'm interested in this too. I've heard racking on to 1-2# per gal. Frozen pasteurized berries on the secondary is the way to go. I plan on brewing 5 gal batch and doing half strawberry bottling for SWMBO and half normal kegging for me. Any thoughts on this?
