Hey everyone, Welcome to my first beer advocate post. As you can tell from the thread's title I am in need of some suggestions/advice on how to brew a delicious blonde ale. I just recently purchased morebeer.com's personal home brewery kit #4 and as some of you may know, it comes with a blonde ale extract ingredient kit. Now I have taken the majority of the beer community's advice and I started reading How to Brew by John Palmer although I am not all the way through it yet. One thing I have gathered from the book is that following directions on kits will sometimes ruin your beer and also make it less of an adventure. So obviously I am going to stray from the kit directions a bit.... Here are my questions: 1) I was thinking of adding in agave or honey to help with the floral aromas and also add a little more ABV to the beer. If anyone has any suggestions on any brands or any particular type of honey/agave to use, or if this is a terrible idea in general please let me know. 2) I was also hoping to add some flavorings/purees to spice up the beer a bit. My initial thoughts would be to add orange to give the beer more of a sweet and citrusy taste. Is this a good idea? and if so, how would I go about using a syrup/puree properly? 3) I always enjoy a blonde ale or wheat beer with coriander in it. Would it be a good idea to put coriander in this beer? 4) The beer kit comes with one kind of malt extract (ultralight) and one kind of hops (williamette). Does anyone have any additional suggestions on whether or not to add one or two different kinds of malts or hops to give the beer any additional/unique flavorings? Perhaps a finishing hops for an even more aromatic beer? Please feel free to answer any or all of these questions. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
