Sorry just saw this.

If you want to do an extract version of this you could sub out the majority of the 2 row for light DME you would still need to mash/steep a pound of 2-row with the caramel and corn to give the corn the enzymes to convert the starches. So if you were going to do extract I'd mash the 3lbs of grain in a gallon of 150F water for an hour stirring occasionally then remove grains, add additional water for boil and continue as normal from OP


1lb 0oz of US 2-Row Malt
1lb 0oz of US Caramel 20L Malt
1lb 0oz of US Flaked Corn/Maize
6lb 0oz of Extract - Light Dried Malt Extract

Good deal. Post back with your final results and comments. It goes pretty quick every time I've brewed it. Always a crowd pleaser.

I also am looking to add some fruit, I was wondering how your batch went and what you added? Thanks!

Blueberry would be good. I have mixed half this vanilla cream ale with a saranac blueberry with positive results. I don't really like blueberries but it was decent.

Strawberries turned out freakin amazing. I call it Strawberries and Cream ale. Just a slight vanilla cream finish with tons of strawberry all the way through. I used 5 lbs frozen strawberries, crushed them up frozen with mallet and added when I went in to secondary. I left it on the strawberries for 7 days and racked into tertiary for another week. I did a one off growler on raspberries. It was good, but a little tart. I'll be making this one again and will probably split a batch to try different fruits. The best compliment I got was from my wife, who didn't believe me at first that I had brewed this!
