what are all the ingredients for this beer?
robert keefer on Feb 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hop Blonde Ale: Grains= 8 lbs American pale, 1 lb White Wheat, 1 lb Crystal 10L Hops= 1 oz cascade, 1oz Willamette, 1 oz Simcoe. I recommend doing a yeast starter with White Labs WLP001 California Ale yeast.

Hope this helps

Hop blonde
A very good beer. It is the first beer I used the fermzilla with pressure fermentation. Very good and crisp beer. Dry hopping withthe Simcoe hops was a good choice. Love the Simcoe.

Tasty brew
Taste's like your typical blonde ale but hopped up a little more and would make a nice base-beer to build upon. Followed the directions as is and was very solid...hit target AG/FG. At the price you can't beat and I could see having it on tap rotation as a house ale.

Very nice Blonde Ale
This is a very nice Blonde Ale. Easy drinking. Nose had a hint of caramel with a mild hops aroma. Good head retention. Color is a little darker than the recipe at ~8 SRM. OG 1.055; FG 1.010; ABV 5.91%.

Deceptively smooth
I was skeptical about trying a blonde but I gave this a try based on the hop bill. This finished pretty hazy but after almost three weeks in the keg it was crystal clear. Pretty cool. Anyway this is a smooth, easy drinking brew with the balance leaning slightly toward the hops side. Great summertime brew. Even people who don't like craft beer were loving this. I've already had requests to make this kit again.
