Im trying out the belgian blonde ale recip from the Hughes book and using MJ M47. No idea how its going to turn out. Im hoping for a Leffe style. It was interesting making the amber candy sugar.

Might try the recip on this thread from @Baz Chaz another time!

More bananas with this one, less cloves.

For cloves, use MJ M20 (Bavarian Wheat), after a week of fermentation, rack your beer to a another vessel and leave it for a month so that the yeast can flocculate. At bottling time, use a bottling yeast and rack very carefully to the bottling bucket. You should get a clear beer, (almost) without the weizen yeast.

I made a blonde last weekend and use Wyeast 1214 Abbey Ale. Made a yeast starter but should have done research first as it’s a very slow starter so my yeast starter was probably all but useless and as a result probably only pitched half the amount of yeast I would have liked. OG was 1071 so fingers crossed I can avoid off flavours with stress. One to watch for the future with this yeast. First Belgian Blonde I’ll have made.
