Right, after my Lager debarcle, time to get my brewing Mojo back [smile]

I bought some summery hops in the Malt Miller sale a while back and I've decided I want to make a pale, light quaffer to cover my lack of lager (which I will try again once these are out of the chamber - dont want to run stocks too low tho)

Heres my thinking....

Summer Smash (SUMMER) (Blonde Ale)

Original Gravity (OG): 1.038  (°P): 9.5
Final Gravity (FG):    1.007  (°P): 1.8
Alcohol (ABV):         4.03 %
Colour (SRM):          4.1   (EBC): 8.1
Bitterness (IBU):      35.5   (Tinseth)

95% United Kingdom - Golden Promise
5% Rolled Oats

1 g/L Magnum (13% Alpha) @ 60 Minutes (Boil)
2.7 g/L Summer (5% Alpha) @ 0 Minutes (Aroma)
0.7 g/L Summer (5% Alpha) @ 0 Days (Dry Hop)


Single step Infusion at 66°C for 60 Minutes. Boil for 60 Minutes

Fermented at 18°C with Kölsch Bier Yeast


Recipe Generated with Brewer's Friend


Pale malt smash with 5% oats cos I love em [smile]  Bittered to 35IBUs with Magnum, then 40g of the target hop (Pekko, Summer or Epic are the three I have) in at flame out for 20 mins before the cooler goes in.  Ferment using CmL Kolsch yeast (to get a clean, lager like ferment at ale temps) to completion and then 5 days on another 10-15g of the target hop before bottle / keg.  I plan on keeping the ABV quite low at 4% so I have a true summer quaffer for those firday night chat sessions [rofl]

I've not used Epic or Pekko, but Summer are nice. Fruity in a non grapefruit way, more like apricot/melon I think.
