I am looking for a nice cream ale, in extract kit form. Does anyone have any history with such, and can make a suggestion?

Then Northern Brewer it is!

I'll let you guys know how it turns out. I have never brewed before, and have never tasted a homebrew! So, this will be new all the way around for me!

Good luck with the brew. I've never done a cream ale, but it's on my short list. My first was a porter. I figured that if it didn't clear all that well, it wouldn't be a big deal since it's a dark brew.

Would one of you post up the NB cream ale recipe, or maybe specifically what you did when it came out awesome? Fermentation temps, or variance from printed recipe, etc. is what I'm seeking.

Primary - California Common -finally!
Secondary - nothing, back after year plus hiatus
Keg carbing & conditioning - nada
Drinking - store bought: Loose Cannon IPA, Wachusett IPA.
On deck: Trying to decide (beer); wine kit likely (red wine)

I wonder what would happen if I tossed this Ale/Wort on the WLP002 English Ale yeast cake I just used for my Nut Brown Ale?
In the Primary:
In the Secondary: Belgian Witbier
Ready to drink: Scottish Shilling 60, Liverpool Pale Ale

Gallons brewed this year:
5 gallons Belgian Witbier
5 gallons Liverpool House Pale Ale
5 gallons Scottish Shilling 60
