Blond Ale

Don't need a question to start a thread here. The weather is hot, it would be nice to know when the next brew is coming.

Blond Ale

Brewed this a few weeks back as a quickie! :D
Ingredients:
One (1) Can of malt
3kg of pale malt (Single mash at 66C)
56g of willamette hops
x2 packets of US56 Dry Yeast
OG: 1.065
FG: 1.012

The yeast expired so I figured put two to be safe. :D Less than 18hr the air lock started moving. This time was too lazy to do secondary, and it was a quickie anyway so keg it stright from primary. Charged 10psi at 4C. Had a sample after 4 days or so. Wow! it was crappie! Stright away I can smell a bit of funky smell and when I tasted it..... That "Twang" stright away hit me. Never have tasted it so strong. thinking of dumping it into the basin but decided to pump up the psi to 20 aand wait for a few days. will see how it goes.

dumping it down would be too wasteful. Wait it out, see if it improves. never know you know.

I think he is referring to the homebrew twang. Waste of CO2 if you ask me :mrgreen:

BTW, OG of 1.065 is not a blond, should be an IPA :roll:

Hi Hunty,
Yes, Storage and freshness is very important if your using liquid malt. Read in "Brewing Classic Styles"By Jamil & Palmer. 2 years shelf life for liquid malt but the color still changes within the 2 years. DME is not so bad.
