Yes, Yoopers first post recipe. Very basic. We did have to adjust our mash PH, as with many yellow beers, was not enough lactic acid on it's own. And we adjusted our local water according to PH balance. But everything else, we did just as she instructed. Nice, crisp, dry finish. And 6% is perfect. We're already planning to make another 12 gallons of this in a few weeks. Ground squirrel away a keg or 2 for winter blues.

Brought over a neighbor just to make sure we're not gaga over this because we made it.. he was floored, and so was his wife, who doesn't drink beer/ale. This is great. Ours has an ABV of 6% though. I just had 3 pints, and I am feelin it. Once again, i would totally reccomend thisrecipe. It's tremendous.
I'm glad you like it! I have just a little bit left and it's supposed to be 91 today, so I have a feeling we'll be finishing it off.

No, it's not like Spotted Cow. Spotted Cow has a lighter body and feel- it's got corn in it to help with that. Spotted Cow is more like Biermunchers "Cream of Three Crops", except with all corn instead of rice and corn.

I just filled 8 grolsch bottles with the remainer of this 3 gallon keg, just so we could get keg 2 on the Co2. Curious how the glass will soften the flavor. I do notice, even bottling off the keg, the ale actually bottle conditions after being out of the stainless steel keg.

ours was pretty sweet as well, but finished off very dry & crisp. I am actually starting to think we're more in the 6.5% to 7% ABV range. I have one of these and I can feel it. Our efficiency has been up in the 75% area. We seem to be extracting uber amounts of sugars from our grains. Thing is, if this is around 6.5/7% range... you'd never know it by the taste. All in all, this grain bill, combined with this yeast, just works really well together. A perfect marraige so to speak. Sometimes, you find a great combo, I would say this is one.. for us anyhow.

Hate to be juvenile, oh hell.. no I don't.lolol, I just had 2 pints of this after mowig the lawn in 85 degree heat & 100% humidity & a shower. I just about walked into the wall in my dining room... My numbers on this say it is 6%, but my brain says this is easily in the range of 7/7.5%... how can our actual readings be that far off? Is it possible for ale in the 6% range to rockzor your soxzors off in yay such a manner?

Yesterday I was at my brothers re roofing his garage. All day in the sun. Had to stop for about 15 at one point cause I was just to hot to continue!! Came home after about 10 hours in the sun and sat outside, waiting for my turn for the shower. I had one of these. Bottles it about three weeks ago. After one( JUST ONE!!) I stood up and had to sit right back down. I was pretty much hammered!! You gotta be careful when drinkin a Yoopers AG American Cream Ale

Did a check today and the reading was already down to 1.028 from 1.049. Tastes like 'beer' that my friends would like.
