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.


% Amount Name Origin Potential SRM
4.1 0.50 lbs. Vienna Malt America 1.035 4
89.8 11.00 lbs. Pale Malt(2-row) America 1.036 2
4.1 0.50 lbs. Crystal 10L America 1.035 10
2.0 0.25 lbs. Honey Malt Canada 1.030 18

Potential represented as SG per pound per gallon.


Amount Name Form Alpha IBU Boil Time
1.00 oz. Hallertau Hersbrucker Pellet 3.30 14.8 60 min.
0.50 oz. Czech Saaz Pellet 3.60 2.7 20 min.
0.50 oz. Czech Saaz Pellet 3.60 0.0 0 min.


White Labs WLP001 California Ale

Bottle Priming
3/4 cup honey

I've never primed with honey so I'd appreciate any recommendations about doing this. Thanks!

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
