Good recipe when I do it again ill change a few things though:

-Less centennial, its good but the hops are hiding the orange peel a little
-A little more orange peel
-Maybe a little more vanilla, started out just right but mellowed and disappeared with the required aging to make it good, a little more and it would last longer I think.

I know this is a pretty old thread but I just brewed this today with a few changes.

I subbed Willemette for the Goldings. I used 1.5 ounces of orange zest and dropped the vanilla. My LHBS didn't have the cream ale yest blend so I went with Safale US-05. Once bottling comes I may add a bit more orange peel for to taste and put in a little lager yeast to cold condition it with. Might be a waste of yeast and time though, not sure yet.

I'll post here again once its bottled and carbed up.

This is coming back around on my list for summer brews to do again. It ended up being a very delicious brew once it aged a little bit. I would however recommend adding a little more vanilla while it was strong at first it dissappeared very quickly. I havent had a chance to try the current recipe I have up as I deployed but I have used it in another beer and its not as powerful as you think.

Well be safe out there! thanks for sharing the recipe. I made a vanilla milk stout once and at bottling added an ounce of vanilla extract in addition to the ounce I put in late in the boil and those addition were fine after about 6 weeks in the bottle. For this I MIGHT use a little vanilla but I really want more orange flavor than anything and I might have to use a lot of vanilla to come over the orange.
