Lately, the sporadic posts on this blog have been mostly about chemistry. I have seriously neglected posting anything about beer and brewing. How sad.
I plan on brewing tomorrow (I hope). I'm going to make what I call a summer ale. Here is my planned recipe:
2 3.5 lb pale malt
0.5 lb honey malt
0.5 lb carapils
3 lbs light dry malt extract (late addition)
Willamette- aroma and flavor
I'm shooting for something lighter in color. The hops are from what I have on hand. I think the Columbus will be nice for bittering. At 14% AA,it won't take much to bitter the beer. The Willamette should provide a nice herbal, earthy flavor that will taste good when I am digging in my garden.
 or trying to kill that stupid rabbit that's decimated my garden.
