Default leffe blonde clone


The original post Leffe Blonde clone recipe by Dr Duckbutter is from "Beer Captured." I use a version of it, but can't find Pride of Ringwood hops. I sub'd Centennial, others favor Hallertau. Based on Kristen England's advice, I also sub 2 lbs of corn sugar for 1.75 pounds of the pils malt and the candi sugar in the original.

Palmers say Cluster is a good sub for Pride.

I actually never got around to brewing this. I'll line it up in the queue next.
