Default Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale request

I just love the Kilkenny Cream Ale. I bought a can as a treat last night but at three bucks a can I only had the one. I couldn't help but think that an entire keg of this stuff would be heaven. I did a search, but all I could find was Kilkenny Irish Red and it just didn't look (to my untrained eye) like it would come out as a cream ale.

Anybody have an ideas? I'll probably do an extract version but I can always convert an AG recipe if someone has one.

Damn! That stuff is tasty.

I agree. This is a wonderful beer. I had it when I was in Budapest and again when I was in Berlin. I was ecstatic when I found it in Toronto, but I've yet to find it in the States. So - as a homebrewer, I figured I must clone it. You are correct though, it is served with nitrogen / beer gas, so you won't have that affect. However, I keg all my beers now and I have a "Creamer" faucet, so while it doesn't last like it would with beer gas, you do get the waterfall visual. Just don't blink, because it will be gone :-) What you're left with, using this type of faucet is a nice thick creamy head at the top. I have my CO2 set to 12 lbs and let it carb for two weeks. It's at the top of my re-brew list. Of the five faucets I have, I've decided this is a a brew I will always have on tap.

The recipe below is for all grain, adjusted for no sparge method. So, keep in mind you'll have to adjust back some of your grains if you're doing batch sparging or fly sparging:


8.48 lbs Belgian Pale
3.64 lbs Belgian Wheat Malt
1.81 lbs Carared
0.49 lbs Flaked Oats
0.11 lbs Belgian Chocolate Malt
0.10 lbs Black Roasted Barley

0.6 oz Northern Brewer (Pellets 60 min.)
0.1 oz Fuggles (Pellets 15 min.)
0.1 oz Fuggles (Pellets 1 min)

White Labs WLP004 Irish Ale Yeast

Target Mash Temperature 152 deg F

Target Boil Volume 6.59 gallons for a 5.00 gallon batch.


Let me know what you think!
