Planning on brewing an easy drinking honey blonde ale tomorrow. I put this recipe together based on some reading in "Radical Brewing". I'd prefer to use German or Belgian malt as "Radical Brewing" recommends, but I've got 25 lbs. of American 2 row and need to put it to work! Like to hear any feedback before I brew.

Depending on what you're looking for, here are my suggestions:

-Up the honey malt to at least .75 lb. Maybe even 1 lb
-Use more Honey, at least 1 lb, and use it at flame out. You'll take care of pasturization without losing the flavors
-WLP002 is my preferred honey-beer yeast. You don't want it to finish too dry
