so i am doing my first cream ale, let me know what you guys think of this recipe and if there are any tips you have i would appreciate it.
8oz gambrinus honey malt (steep)
8oz flaked maize (steeped)
6# pilsen lme
1# golden light dme
.5 oz amarillo (60min)
.5 oz amarillo (5 min)
wyeast whitbread ale yeast
i plan on adding the dme to about 2 gal of h20 after steeping the specialty grains and then adding the rest of the lme about 10 min before the boil is over to try and avoid carmelization in order to have a lighter colored finished product.
