My favorite recipe of mine is:
7lbs us 2-row
1 3/4# flaked maize
3/4# instant rice
1oz liberty
WLP029 Kolsch yeast

Mash at 149 for 90 minutes. Ferment at 60-62 for 3-4 weeks. Bottle and lager the bottles for 4-6 weeks.
That's pretty close to mine. Except I always use Williamette. I like the almost minty spice it gives a cream ale.

My buddy has used rice a few times, and in fact we used it in our last cream ale recipe. Works well.

Liberty is supposed to be more traditional, too. The only reason I used the fuggle/saaz combination originally is because I couldn't get any liberty. But damned if that didn't turn out amazing.

That's what I love about this style...the only thing that people really stick to is the corn.

I'm seeing no particular pattern with the yeasts, that's for sure.

niquejim: Wyeast 2035 American Lager Yeast
YooperBrew: Safale S05
DeathBrewer: WLP080 Cream Ale Yeast Blend
BierMuncher: Safale S05
enderwig: WLP029 German Ale/Kölsch

I've also heard many people use california ale and even nottingham (works extremely clean at low temps)

niquejim, how does that lager yeast work at those high temps? Would it be good for a steam beer?

I made Yooper's corn cream ale with S-04 and it was fantastic. I'm going to try this one next, disclaimer I haven't brewed it yet so it may be crap :

5# 2-row
1.5# flaked corn
1# gelatanized rice
.5# munich
.5# vienna
.5# flaked wheat

Mash 150*F, some noble hop for 60 minutes to 15 IBUs (probably saaz since it's my go-to hop), S-04 yeast @64*F.

I never thought about a steam beer( i have no idea why I didn't) with that yeast. I do know it makes this beer great and I use it for my CAP
