Wow. Just made my first batch of recipe #1 and I sure am glad that I put it in my largest fermenter, the layer is already 4 inches tall after only 12 hours. I'm definitally going to have to keep an eye on the water in the airlock, because man is it singing!

If the final product is as good as the OG sample this should be perfect for SWMBO.

Thanks cheese

I couldn't read the whole thread, I tried. lol. I am a slow reader. I would love to do an AG of this. Has anyone done both recipes, an AG and extract of this? Did one come out better than the other? I really want to try this one, sounds Delicous.

Hey guys. I'm new, so I don't exactly know where to put this. If it goes in a new thread let me know. I tried the search, but "caramel cream ale corn" has 1,200 hits, so I need to appeal to you.

My grandma makes caramels every Christmas by boiling cream, sugar and corn syrup. I want to make a Christmas caramel recipe as a tribute to her many years of hard work. So, can you help me make the recipe a little more like hers?

Has anyone made this with corn in the mash? How much, and how'd it turn out?

Has anyone tried caramelizing the first runnings? It seems like it would work a bit like a wee heavy.

I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I'm going to resuscitate this thread once again.

Caramelizing is exactly what I'm going to do with this recipe.

I don't yet know exactly when or how much I'll caramelize, but it'll be the Lactose I'll caramelize on its own, before it goes in the wort. I won't add anything to the recipe (sounds sweet enough as is) but I will basically just change up the chemical composition of some of the lactose.

I'm hoping to impart more caramel flavors into the beer that the grains do. From what I've read, that should do it.

Caramelization of lactose will remain completely unfermentable, while the caramelization of the corn sugar will be somewhat fermentable (depending on how dark you get it).

I think what I'm planning is very similar to what you are looking for.

It may be a month or two before I get this started, so it'll be a while before I can tell you how it came out.

I did 5 gallons extract brew and kegged, and I did 5 gallons AG and bottled it. Both version#1. That are ready to during, but I am out of town at work. The good news is I will be home Christmas eve. Will make a great beer for Christmas. Can't wait.

Cheesefood, this thread has 227,327 views. You should talk to a bank about a loan.

Funny that you say this. The guy got banned about four years ago if not longer. He can only lurk as a non member, unless he got himself a new ip address and user name.

While he might have had good taste on beer his judgement about what to post was an issue. I think the rumor is he posted pictures of fecal matter... some people didn't think it was funny as he did.

After he got his frank spanked by a moderator, I think he attempted to delete this very thread and others. That's what closed his fate as member.

To your point it's a good recipe though.

I take it back, then. He probably shouldn't talk to a bank about a loan. They have even less tolerance of bad attitudes then forums do. And they can wind up with your house.

It was actually about 7 or 8 years ago and it was pictures of fat women, in the secret hidden site. I honestly didn't think it was much worse than the red haired chick in Walmart lingerie, but to each their own. Wasn't fecal though, just large women.

Yeah, there was a time when HBT was cool. Then the moderator thing started. The nanny state. The bans. The people leaving. Too many new people. Too focused on selling memberships. HBT stopped being a gathering and became a business. Started being run like a business. Killed all the fun of the community. I came on in 2005 when everyone celebrated milestone posts by posting porn. This was a site for men and it was run by men who acted like men.

Anywho, this place got hella lame. Thousands and thousands of new users and new posts. Always the same thing "Is it ruined?" or "If I change this for this how will it taste?" or pointless arguments and pseudo-science.

I'm still in the brewing community, but I hang out at different places.
