Brewed my partial mash version on 5/3. Bottled on 5/23. Packed them in the truck and took them from Nashville to Hilton Head with us on vacation. Enjoying them now (6/12)! Definitely perfect for beach and poolside consumption.

Brewed my first Blonde 10 gallon batch on 5/13 and just had my first sip today. Very smooth, very drinkable......perfect summer brew!

Have 7 gallons in the fermentor right now. Smells fantastic. I screwed up the recipe though, as I always manage to do. I wanted to do a partial mash so I could get the flavor of the vienna malt, so I calculated the partial mash recipe myself. Beersmith didn't have pilsen DME in the recipe database, so I entered it in myself. Only problem was I typed in the stats for LME, 1.037 SG/lb/gal instead of 1.044 SG/lb/gal. Whoops. So my SG was 1.051. I did add some fermcap-s, so I am hoping the extra 10% bitterness kicks in, otherwise it is going to be a rather malty beverage. I'll have to try it again the right way and try not to screw it up this time. Anyone who has dry hopped this-- did that turn out good or was that too much for the style?

I brewed this up early last month, found I had no c-10 so I upped the vienna and kicked the mash temp up to keep some residual sweetness, racked onto 5 lbs of strawberries in secondary. fantastic brew that was VERY well recieved at the homebrew meeting, it fell 1 vote short of homebrew of the month mostly because my growlers ran dry before everyone could try it.

I brewed this a few months back and enjoyed it very much. This weekend I plan to brew it again, though this time I plan on souring it and adding some blueberries. I plan on mashing for 36 hours. I'll report back in a couple months.
