What kind of flavors did the cream ale blend add? Ceam ale is one of my favorite styles. I have been using US 05 with very clean/neutral results but I have been curious about the blend.

Sorry for the late reply. I've been busy with my electric build and have not checked in for a while. Overall I would describe the blend as fairly nuetral , but with a minerally crispness in the finish. I'd say the profile taste imparts some of the lager strain but it isn't a big pronounced flavor. I've only used it twice with just this recipe and not with any other strain yet for comparison. One thing of note is that it has a huge smell of sulfur when fermenting and in the finished green beer, but after 2 weeks in the bottle carbing, it totally disappeared.
