Referencing the Blonde Ale - Lots of yeast choices - Best recommendation?
Art Diaz-Gonzalez on Aug 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It depends on what you are comfortable with. Dry yeast is a little more for giving when used with a starter and keeps longer. Liquid yeast can give better results because there is more variety to pair with your brew. From my experience always keep dry on hand in case you have a stopped fermentation. For me dry has always been good and the most consistent, you cannot go wrong with Safale-05. Just use a starter and watch the manic happen.

Great kit for the price. Will buy again. Turned out awsome
Very nice kit for the price. Turned out very good. I added one bottle of strawberry at kegging. This gave a very subtle hint of strawberry to the blonde ale. The only problem is when friends and family tried it my 5 gallon batch disappeared lol. Will definitely make this one again.

Super Smashable Summer Suds
This Blonde is really simple and surprisingly good. Goes down way too easy. Reminds me of a Longboard or 805, but definitely with more character in there. Brewed it with grains twice in a row (my friends drank the first one way too fast) and it turned out dead on point and on target both times. So simple that it would be a good base for experimentation.

Great basic beer
I love IPAs and NEIPAs, so that’s usually what a brew. But I wanted to have something lighter and refreshing for the hot summer days. This is perfect. For those that like the boring light beers, this is great for them. But it also has just a little more flavor than the silver bullets. This will be on my regular rotation to have on tap in the keezer. Also, it was very simple to brew.

Always a Favorite
Everyone always love this ale. Especially appeals to the domestic commercial beer guys and gals. A nice light and refreshing beer. This batch I used for a base for a pineapple flavored beer. Used 1/2 oz. of pineapple flavoring for just a slight hint of pineapple.

Very Nice Lighter Brew
I have brewed this for a summer brew several times and is always a nice addition to our summer offerings. It has an almost nutty background flavor which is pleasing to the palate. It's light bodied and sits well for hotter weather. Perfect quencher for sitting on the porch after doing some summer work or while you are cooking up that BBQ.

Great summer beer
Nice light beer for hot summer days after mowing the lawn. You'll want to cut the grass a second time so you can have some more.

Great Summer Beer
Bright, simple, fresh, clean and very drinkable. I serve mine with a lower carbonation than other beers which helps to bring out the flavors. As others have said a great introduction to craft beer for those that normally drink the yellow fizzy stuff.
