I'm new to home brewing having completed my third batch with not a whole lot of problems or issues (because of the help I have gotten on here from the members). For some time I have been wanting to make my own brew, with some help, more or less from "scratch", or about as much scrap as a new guy is comfortable with.
I'm a huge fan of Buffalo Bill's Orange Blossom Cream Ale and was hoping to brew up an orange summer ale for my son's upcoming first birthday(for the guests, not him). I was hoping for a nice, crisp, smooth and refreshing summer style ale with a detectable orange taste.
As usual, I'm turning to the group for assistance and direction. Could anyone please offer some advice as to a recipe or direction of sorts regarding grains, hops, yeast, spices, flavors, etc?
Any advice will be GREATLY appreciated. I'm also looking into a custom label for his first birthday celebration, which I think would be a nice touch (unless I totally screw the pooch on the batch).
As always, you guys are the absolute best and the FIRST place I look to for assistance.
