Default Who has the best recipe?

Who thinks they have thebest ALE recipe? Preferrably something with maybe some honey or cream. I am new to brewing so please dont give any technical recipes. Just some base types. I really appreciate it. Thank you

I have the best recipe on the planet. For sure. Ask anybody here. If they say, "who's monk?", just tell them, "Y'know, that guy who sometimes asks super newbie questions for his friend...because his friend doesn't have a computer...but not cuz he doesn't know the answer already...no, not the guy who just pushed his rubber stopper through the top of the carboy on saturday, and it's still floating in the ESB...a different one."

Okay. Truth be told, this isn't the best recipe ever, but it's easy, cheap, and tastes pretty darn good.

6 lbs. Pale Liquid Malt Extract
1.4 lbs. Amber Liquid Malt Extract
1.5 oz. of Cascade hops (boil for 58 min)
1 oz. of Cascade hops (boil for last 2 min)
Dry Ale Yeast

Directions: Boil 1.5 gallons of water in a 3 gallons--12 quart-- (or bigger) pot. When the water comes to a boil, remove the pot from the burner and add all of the Malt extract to the hot water. Stir till it dissolves. Bring the contents of the pot to a boil again, add 1.5 oz of hops, and let it boil for 58 minutes. Then add the 1 oz. of hops and let it continue to boil for 2 more minutes. Turn off the flame and cover the pot with aluminum foil. Put the covered pot in the sink and let it sit in some cold water. Now put 3 gallons of cold, cold water in your bucket/carboy. When you can hold your hand against the side of the pot for 30 seconds without it being too hot, add the contents of the pot to the cold water in your fermenting bucket/carboy. Top up the carboy/bucket to the 5 gallon mark. Cover it and wait till it's about 70 degrees F. Then pitch the contents of your yeast packet onto the surface of your wort. Let it sit for a few minutes and then seal the fermenter. Wait 2 weeks, then bottle according to whatever directions you like to use. I'm sure you went and read howtobrew.com

Like I said. I'm a newbie too. I don't know much, but I know that what I just told you will yield you better beer than you can buy at a cheapy AM/PM store. Good luck.

Sorry, I forgot about the "honey or cream" part. I don't know if you want to add cream...that doesn't sound right. If you mean a "cream ale", I think those are made with a small addition of rice extract and Saaz or tettnanger hops (instead of the Cascade), though I could be wrong.
As for honey, you could add a pound to the aforementioned recipe.

I really hate to send people to other brewing sites, because HBT really is the best, but here are a couple of links to a ton of recipes for newbies and advanced brewers alike:

I swear I have the best ale recipe, but if I post it everyone will have it and then what will I do. What do you mean by cream in your beer, are you talking dairy?

Cream? Don't put cream in beer.

I wouldn't advise putting honey in beer either...personally I don't think much of the flavor. Just to reassure myself of that I threw some honey in a brew a few weeks ago...good beer except for the honey flavor. Remember, the flavor contributed will be the *fermented* flavor of honey...not that of raw honey...and in the end we're making beer not cookies, right?

I have a TON of great ale recipes. But since ale can be a light Pale Ale, a Porter, a Stout or any number of other things, I'm not sure which you're after. I will say, don't add dairy to any beer ever.

Cheers

Its mine, mine I tell you, mine. Mine, all mine and I ain't sharin it with nobody, not ever, no way, no how. You can't make me, nobody can, not even that guy next to you.

What am I saying? This isn't like me. Gawd, what poison is this thread spreading in our once peaceful little brew village? It it evil I tell you and we must purge ourselves of it. Fire, that is the answer. Burn cbsdizzo with fire and steal all his beer and his recipes too! That will show him.

Pastor, we all know your recipe. First you boil 2 gallons of water, add a pound of molasses, some bay leaves, a cup of cloves, some pomegranate juice and some Sprite. Boil that and add cardamon and thyme. Then ferment with bread yeast for 4 months before transferring to secondary.
