Corn Country Cream Ale (AG)
 
I brewed this as an all-grain for the first time last June. It was a big hit when the wife & I served it at our wedding shower that July 26th. I modified it from the extract recipe by adding Minute Rice to the mash and orange blossom honey in the boil. IIRC, we drained the keg in about 6-8 weeks!:D

I have been reading a lot more about people adding minute rice...Im going to have to try this. Does the rice really add anything to the finished product???

More adjunct sugars/alcohol. As for flavor, I couldn't detect anything. It's cheap!:) And isn't that what cream ale is all about - getting a decent brew for a small amount of money and effort?:cross:

I'm thinking of making this recipe. I like a smooth, non hoppy beer. I happened to notice that the IBU's on this beer were over 48. That seems high, 48 would be quite hoppy. Is this a correct calculation?
