Fantastic summer quencher, light maltiness, subtle sweetness from the flaked corn.
This is a Cream Ale recipe that I've tweaked over the years. It's our favorite beer, friends who've tried it love it.
This is for an 11 gallon batch:
14 lb Pale Malt (2 Row)
2 lb Flaked Corn
1 lb Flaked Barley
1 lb Vienna Malt
Mash at 152F for 60 min.
1.0 oz Sterling 45 min
1.0 oz Sterling 15 min
I've used US05 and S04, both with great results. The key is to ferment on the low side. I prefer 60F. That gives this beer a clean, crisp flavor. I used to make it with Carapils instead of Vienna but I found Vienna gives it just that hint of maltiness that I like.
