This is a bastardization of Wild Rice Blonde Ale, but mine is better. This is fine beer after 3 weeks in bottle but does is even better after 4+ usually gone by then though...The original recipe called for cascade finishing hops and i went with Mt. Hood because it is less bitter to let the flavor of the malt and rice come through. Possibly improved flavor with some cold conditioning

Time in Boil: 45 min

steep rice in 1.5 gal for 30 min or until 150 F, remove rice. I used cheesecloth. When boil commences add malt, wait for boil to begin again and add 1.5 oz Goldings and boil for 43 min. Add Mt Hood hops for final 2 min of boil. Pour into fermenter. Transfer into secondary, let settle for a couple of days and bottle.
