I'm drinking my first carbonated glass.

It's very hoppy. I used a lot less vanilla and lactose than usual, so the main taste is like an ESB, followed by a hint of sweet vanilla.

Very good. VERY different than every other batch of CCA I've brewed. Nice color, decent clarity.

Update:

The hops, lactose, and vanilla are all settling down. This is a FANTASTIC version of the brew. No extract tang.

hey cheesefood...

I've brewed this a few times as extract... but now I'm about to jump up to all-grain and was thinking about trying this as one of my first brews... I've drank enough of the extract version that this will give me a good comparison between the two brewing styles... I also started using BTP... still trying to get a grasp on this program... is there anyway I could get your BTP file for this recipe...?? I'm trying to understand all the scheduling areas, like the mashing in and all that... I think it'd be good to take a look at a recipe I'm going to brew... thanks again for everything..

Jester

I'm interested in possibly making up a batch of this on my next brew day, but I was looking over your recipe and it seems to me that your mash schedule is quite off base as far as quanities are concerned. Also was wondering your temp schedule as I have never made a cream ale before...

Cheese,

I 'm drinking my first VCCA. I must say its damned good!!!!

I only made one change to your recipe. I used Muntons Kreamy-X when I primed.

I got a really creamy and rocky head on my beer. Its going down fast enough that I've got good lace on the glass. The vanilla seems to accentuate the kreaminess!!

Tanks alot!!
