This Hop Blonde is definitely one that you won't forget!  You'll dream about it.  You'll get nervous when it is near, but you know that you two are made for each other.  The recipe is a fairly standard blonde recipe, but it's that "Simcoe® personality" that makes this blonde so unique!  Our Hop Blonde is well balanced, and the dry hop addition makes this beer slightly complex, but still easy to enjoy.

Still new to this and looking at the color this seems like a good beer to attempt, I wasnt into how dark and cloudy some of my past home brews have been.

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

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.

Great brew
Great kit. Wonderful summer beer with nice hop aroma. Easy drinker; always a hit.

I was a bit at odds with the hop scedule. Cascade full boil and Willamette at five minutes and dry hop with high alpha simcoe...Seemed backwards, I boiled with simcoe and dry hopped with cascade. Nice and fresh with citrus, and pleasant tang from the simcoe.
Young, hazy, and hoppy.  Wheat and dry hop gives it haze; clear ir and loose all those flavors.

Hopped Up Blonde
Tweaked the recipe a bit. .5oz at 60 min, .5oz at 30, 1oz at 10, 2oz whirlpool. Used Omega Hornindal Kviek pitched at 90 and fermented at 90 for 6 days. added 2oz Amarillo day 7, 2oz. Simcoe day 8 and 1lb of blood orange candi syrup. Let that ride for 2day and cold crashed for 4 days.
13hrs after pitching Omega Hornindal Kviek at 90 degrees
