For the yeast, I'm reusing yeast from a previous pale ale--safale 05. The hops are leftovers in my freezer. My sister is moving to Iowa for the summer next month and I brew to brew just a basic pleasanty-but not overwhelmingly-bitter APA. What do you think of my recipe? Any tips?

Shouldn't it have some corn in it?

I'm calling it Iowa 'cause an I'm brewing it for an Ioweagian. Is there anyway to incorporate corn into it without doing a cereal mash?

Flaked corn is pre-gelatininized and will convert in the mash.

So how would you recommend using flaked corn in this recipe? I don't really want to thin out the body on this one, so throw in .5 lb and call it good?

If you lust want it in there, sure 1/2 lb would be fine. Really your mash temp will define the body but the corn will not contribute the same flavor as the malt.

So you aren't trying to clone Millstream's Iowa Pale Ale?

I would add a little more end of boil hops, but I wouldn't say it's essential.
