I am hoping to get back into AG/BIAB brewing (after a long hiatus I have done two quick K&K's to ease my way back), how does this recipe sound as a simple Blond Ale?

I have based this on the Bullshead Kolsch from the recipe index, which I also plan on brewing later (once my vials arrive to pre-split the kolsch #2565, and probably after a Dr Smurto's Golden Ale)

Looks great. It looks very similar to this Blonde which turns out great every time. I have brewed this quite a few times now and could consider upping the biscuit just a little more if you like biscuit...

Cheers.

Thanks jyo, it is very close to yours, I don't have any biscuit, but I hope the caramalt will give it enough flavor and body while still being mild enough got SWMBO.

Mine is always a big hit with the missus, mate. The caramalt should give you enough body to balance out the crisp end of this.
