Default Cream Ale Extract recipe

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?

It probably isn't ideal to steep oats since they have unconverted starches.

ok, leave out the oats. Anything else I should consider?

This looks tasty
forgive the noob question but why the lactose? Another sugar source?
Would it cause problems for those with lactose problems?
It looks like you have a lot of grain for a cream ale. The recipes I've used have none. FYI

Corn maze can be mashed with the carapils and the 10L. I would drop the lactose. If you want it sweater then mash at a higher temp say 155f. Just my 2 cents in the whole thing. Take a look at the cream of 3 crops recipe, that should give you an idea. I rack that same recipe on cherries and it came out great.

Lactose isn't fermentable, it's there for sweetness and mouthfeel. I would assume that it wouldn't be good for a lactose intolerant person to drink...

I'll give it a look, thanks for the advice!

My plan is to brew here in a couple of weeks. Here's what I'm thinking:

4 lbs Light DME
1 lb 10L
1 lb Carapils
1 lb Flaked corn
1 oz Saaz (.5 @ beginning of 60' boil, .5 @ 15' left)
Wyeast Whitbread 1099

Rack over ~5lb of fresh strawberries
1-2oz of Brewer's best strawberry extract at bottling

Would steeping 0.25# of victory malt as well be a good idea, or overpowering?
