How did this turn out?
What makes this a "Cream" ale?
It was really good... it is, as staed in the tasting notes... Light, refreshing and crisp.
The flaked corn is what makes it a cream ale...
I brewed it once last summer, it was a great beer, have no brewed it since with all of the remodeling of the HERMS and getting my seasonal beers out.
I do one really similar to this...that was born out of "what i had hanging around". Went like this:
7.5 2 row
1.5 flaked corn
Hopped it with 1oz 3% hallertauer at 60 and .5 of 4% saaz at 30 and 5.
Had corriander, smashed the snot out of an ounce and chucked it in at 8 mins.
Half ounce of sweet orange...in at 5.
The yeast on hand happened to be WYEAST Kolsch. So I have no clue what I made, but I've made it twice and its damn good.
Well, this is worth brewing just from the name! :D
This is a good beer guys... great beer for those who dont like "homebrew".
This will be my inaugural brew on the BREWT 1.0 (a BrewBeast system clone). Firing her up today!
