Bitterness 21.3 IBU
Original Gravity - 1.057
Final Gravity - 1.013
8 lbs. Domestic 2-row
1. lbs. American Vienna
1 lbs. 10 oz Corn Flaked
1.25 oz. Czech Saaz (Pellets, 3.9 %AA) boiled 60 min.
0.5 oz. Czech Saaz (Pellets, 3.9 %AA) boiled 15 min.
0.25 oz. Czech Saaz (Pellets, 3.9 %AA) boiled 1 min.
Yeast : Fermentis US-05 Safale US-05
Heres my 2 cents, take it or leave it.
Id personally drop the vienna and sub it with a pound of flaked rice, bump the corn up to 2 pounds,(its almost 2 pounds already)
Also I would recommend a 90 boil as well as a 90 min mash, when ive made cream ales before the longer mash gave it that dry crispness thats typical of a lager and the 90 min boil drove off the dms again adding to the crispness of the beer.
For hops maybe sub the flavor addition with some williamette? When I did my last cream ale I used Saaz/williamette combo. It was a 90 min boil, first hop addition at 60 min and flavoring at 20 min.
Just some food for thought, let us know how this turns out when you make it
