Oh yeah, JT, Belgian blond is a fantastic style. Brew it to any strength, whether you want something sessionable or sippable.


Yeah, great style. Lots of yeast choices - I love 3522, too (among others). I like it in summer (or any)time. Nice looking beer BTW.

Have you had Ommegang's Cooperstown Ale? It was the beer that made me want to brew this style more.

Must be just my view- pic came in sideways.  Trying to make a joke - my bad.

Though it looks delicious, the looks glued to the inside of the glass on my end too.

You haven't gone crazy yet, Paul lol

Looks really nice. Was this in a bottle or a forgotten keg? Not often you see that kinda head on something bottled unless it's a highly carbonated hefe.

I don't know what you do, Ken, but you get some pretty impressive head on your beers.

I wish I knew what is[are] the contributing factors.  my process is pretty locked down from soup to nuts and doesn't deviate-regardless of the style.  only difference between ales and lagers is the most recent change to hochkurz for lagers.

could it be the avangard malts maybe?  I mean I have very good head on all of my beers (no complaints at all!), follow a lot of the same practice as you do, along with the same water profiles, and I generally don't have that meringue like head you seem to get on everything, except for my Truculent IPA which is malty and ridiculously hopped

thought that also at one point Paul, however this beer was with muntons maris otter, and many others I've posted were with weyermann, schill, and various other base malts.
