Omg, 5 lbs? That's gotta add way more abv than that. Yikes!

Sorry, I forgot to say that I did an 11 gallon batch. Even so, without the honey the OG of this recipe is usually around 1.040 or slightly lower depending on your efficiency. This boosted mine to around 1.062. It fermented down to 1.010 so it worked out to 6.8%. I added an ounce of Columbus to it as well. The really tricky part now is what kind of beer it actually is now. SRM and ibu's are too low to call it a pale ale. OG and ABV are too high for a blonde. I guess I'll have to just wait till its ready before I can taste and decide for myself what kind of beer I made.

Oh wow, 11 gallon batch. You had me worried, haha. Still though, let us know how it turns out.

Does that make it an Imperial Centennial Blonde?

Brought a 5 gallon keg of this to an engagement party/tennis social last night. About 40 people and keg was gone in under two hours. Was still a little green I think, had a little bite of bitterness on the finish, but everyone loved it.

In my experience honey adds flavor but only fora while and it fades away as it ages . I use very high flavor honey like Tupelo or rain flower or orange blossom etc. It is a different type of flavor from what you would buy in grocery store normally . Does make a blonde taste good but only for a couple weeks . Maybe last longer in keg ?
