- Add all steeping grains to steeping bag and steep as per your preferred steeping method. Generally, 155 F for 30 minutes. - Remove grains, bring to boil then turn off heat, and add extract. Once extract is amply mixed, bring back to a boil. - Once wort comes to a boil, add bittering hops as noted and start the 60 min clock. - Cool the wort, when the 60-minute boil is finished, cool the wort to approximately 85° F as rapidly as possible. Use a wort chiller, or put the kettle in an ice bath in your sink. - Fill primary fermenter with cooled wort. Leave any thick sludge in the bottom of the kettle. - Add more cold water as needed to bring the volume to 2.85 gallons. - Aerate the wort. Seal the fermenter and rock back and forth to splash for a few minutes, or use an aeration system and diffusion stone. - Add yeast to fermenter once the temperature of the wort is 68°F or lower. - Allow 1-2 weeks to fermente (timing is somewhat flexible). Once fermentation ends may transfer to 2nd Fermrnter for 1-2 weeks. OR let sit on trub for 5 days then bottle. - When Bottling beer, add one sugar fizz drop per 12 oz bottle. Condition for 3-4 weeks (timing is somewhat flexible).

This Blonde Ale is an easy drinking beer, low in esters, slight haze , low bitterness, flavor of hops comes through in the finish with a citrus flavor.
