This brew went off beautifully. We hit a gravity of 1.049, 6 gallons. We used hersbruckers, which smelled incredible, never used them before, we added 1 oz of the Saaz, due to pilot error.., and finished off with a flame out of about 1/2 of the hersbruckers, since co-pilot added the entire ounce insted of 1/2. But we made 6 gallons, looked, smelled awesome. This recipe looks like a winner.

Yooper, I will be brewing this next weekend with some slight modifications. To use up grains I have sitting around. But I had a thought. Could you help me develop an Imperial Cream Ale (9-10%) that has the same balance as the original recipe?? Just an idea. Lemme know what u think.

I just don't know! I guess you could boost up the fermentables and also the bittering hops to keep the same SG/IBU ratio, but I have no other idea what I would do.

or just add corn sugar to it, im not a huge fan of it, but it's a sure fire way to get fermentable sugars.

I think I'll put the recipe into Beersmith, scale it up, and use a yeast well suited for, say, Imperial IPA's. one that ferments clean up to 10% with few esthers. Yooper, any suggestions?

I"ve never tried a "bigger" cream ale, so I'm clueless on this, sorry! I like my cream ales very light and crisp and quaffable and not with a higher OG than about 1.050-1.054.

After a long hot day of working on my home, I like to enjoy a tall refreshing glass of Yooper's American Cream Ale! If you ain't drinkjn Yooper's, you're not American!!

OK, so let me say... this recipe is F'ing outstanding. We set this on the Co2 about 8 days ago, brewed maybe 4 weeks ago. Last night as we brewed a red IPA, we got into the Yooper cream ale for first time. We are just in love with this stuff. Brought over a neighbor just to make sure we're not gaga over this because we made it.. he was floored, and so was his wife, who doesn't drink beer/ale. This is great. Ours has an ABV of 6% though. I just had 3 pints, and I am feelin it. Once again, i would totally reccomend thisrecipe. It's tremendous.
