SMASHed Blonde

Post by Icedpyre » Tue Jul 02, 2019 8:45 pm

Not sure if anyone from Noble Grape-Burnside trolls this forum. Blake/Dan, if you see this, I was too lazy to bring you a you can just brew your own. So this was my first attempt making either a SMASH ale, or a blonde. It's actually one of the favorites of personal recipes. My wife had mixed feelings, due to the slight-moderate banana esters. First time using the MJ54 yeast, so I don't know if it came from that, or my ferm temps. I haven't made this a second time yet, so we'll see I guess. The beer was a bit hazier seeming than most of my beers, because I have no way to cold-crash, and I forgot to add gelatin. I would like some feedback, as I rarely share my beers with anyone, and this is the first recipe I've shared. I'm fine if you hate it honestly...because I love it.
