There is absolutely nothing wrong with using corn in a blonde ale in this circumstance. Strawberries have a very subtle flavor on beer and you usually need to use in excess of 1 lb. per gallon to get any flavor from them at all. The corn will add little to no flavor, but it will cut the malt flavor and let the strawberry flavor come through more. If you ...

I would use cider yeast (like WLP775 or WYeast 4766). I think strong hop flavors would be out of place, so I would go for aged hops (like people do for p-lambic), and something low-alpha with citrus notes (Strisselspalt would fit the bill). I agree you should ditch the molasses – mojitos are typically made with white rum, which would not have any molasses ...

I'm assuming you mean the mojito cocktail, made with mint and lime. A North Carolina brewery called NoDa Brewing does a mojito-inspired beer called the NoDajito. You might want to look into that for inspiration. They went all the way with the mojito theme and used mint leaves and lime zest. I'm not quite sure why you'd want to add molasses to the beer, or ...

I think wheat when I think fruit beers. So I'd say 1:1 replacement with wheat. You could experiment with traditional malted, flaked or torrified wheat. In some ways, the are similar in others they are not. I like torrified wheat used in small amounts like you need here as a substitute. I'd also suggest table sugar at a lower replacement ratio. This ...

Sound more like a Cream Ale recipe, Blonde Ale shouldn't have corn. It can be up to 25% wheat though, I would replace the flaked corn with flaked wheat, or just 2-row to remove it completely. I've done this Strawberry Blonde before, it turned out nice. Used real strawberries, ditched the fruit extract, did all grain. Recipe is in the dl docs. ...

Hmmn that’s an interesting one I would probably drop the molasses and swap to agave syrup and use Citra hops 3-5 grams and then do a dry hop with a bunch of mint. Also since a mojito has a very clean flavor profile I would probably do a lager of some sort so that at least narrows down your yeast a little. Assuming your talking about making a beer like a ...
