I'm thinking of trying something that falls into this somewhat unofficial style. Anyone have any suggestions? A friend asked me to make them some beer and I said that they had to make it and I'd help them. They want something "lighter" in colour so I thought about a blond ale or maybe this style.
Is there a difference? If so, what is it?
First thought at a recipe (and this hasn't run through Beersmith yet).
9 lbs Maris Otter
1 lb wheat - just cause
1 oz EKG @ 60
1/2 oz EKG @10
1/2 oz Fruity hop of some sort (Mosaic, citra, amarillo, cascade???) @ 10
10 mins could become whirlpool hops
Want to keep it pretty simple for the first attempt.
No idea how this would work but what I've read seems to mention some fruity hop character and not all classic English hops. Sort of a hybrid US/English hopping regime.
