I've been toying with 6B Blonde Ales. Early on they sucked. I had one that came out similar to Widmer Citra, but that's not the direction I wanted. Too hoppy. I'm actually trying to get it to be more toward the lager aspect of hybrid. My last attempt which is bottled and done seems to be getting closer. I tried one last night and frankly it's pretty similar to Leffe Blond. Strange because it's 1056?
Cutting to the chase. I just kegged my most recent attempt. The final hydrometer sample is very American Premium Lager like. I am guessing that carbed it will be very close to FS Session, though not quite as strong.Which is what I'm aiming at. I changed yeast this time.
I want to know if it should just be called 1C American Premium Lager.
