I'm looking to brew a light, smooth cream ale that I can rack over strawberry puree. I don't have a large enough brew pot to do anything but extract (it's 4 gallons I believe). This raises the issue of not being able to use corn since I believe it's only useful when going AG.
I'd really like to shoot for something similar to Sun King's Sun Light (light, smooth, almost nutty flavor), but I'm not sure if it's possible with extract.
Anyways, here's what I'm thinking:
5 lbs Light DME
1 lb 10L
1 lb Carapils
.5 lb Flaked Oats
.4 lb Lactose (added with 15 minutes left in the boil)
1 oz Saaz (.5 @ beginning of 60' boil, .5 @ 15' left)
Wyeast Whitbread 1099
Thoughts? Is there any way to use corn effectively in steeping?
