Default Extract - All Hopped Up Cream Ale

Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: White Labs California Ale V WLP051
Yeast Starter: Yes
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.070
Final Gravity: 1.010

Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14
Additional Fermentation: 3 Weeks in Bottles

Tasting Notes: Initially a little sweet but at 6 weeks in the bottle has a real nice balance

Technically this probably isn't a cream ale but I didn't really know how else to classify this beer.

If I would change anything I may remove the Corn Sugar because initially I thought it was too sweet but once this beer sits for a couple weeks it has a really nice balance.
