I have a packet of T-58 and I'm looking to make a partial mash Belgian blonde. I'm looking to keep it in the low 6% ABV, and I'm considering fermenting it cooler for the first week to ensure I don't get any banana or bubble gum flavors, and then allowing it to ferment another 3 weeks on it's own. No secondary.

When I punch in the numbers on Brewtoad I'm well above the stated OG and FG numbers for either this style or for a Golden Strong.

What LME/DME would you use?

My boil volume is 4 gals and my final volume will be 5.5 gals using ~2 gals top off. I'll be BIAB.

Has anyone made a Belgian Blonde with this yeast (or even a wheat) and would like to share their recipe?

I can't help you with that yeast but I did brew a Belgian blonde not long ago that turned out really nice:

83% Pilsner
3.5 % white wheat
3.5 % Munich
10 % table sugar
Hallertauer at 60 min for 26 IBU
small Saaz addition at 2 min
1.062 OG
1.008 FG
mash 150*

For partial mash I would mash the munich, wheat, and as much Pilsner as you can fit then make up the rest with Pilsen extract or the lightest extract you can find. If you haven't read it I found Jamil's style profile on Belgian Blond helpful.
