Hi All,
I have a rather silly question. I have made both a double IPA and a Heff (the latter was awesome), and have been thinking about something a bit lighter. I decided on the Cream Ale kit from Midwest Brewing. First off, has anyone tried this kit, and if so, should I consider anything to make it a bit better? Although I am not looking for something too hoppy, I am a bit worried it will turn out too bland. Does anyone have any thoughts? thanks

Cream ales aren't hoppy at all. It's essentially a lite or premium lager brewed as an ale. If you can find Genesee Cream Ale, this will give you an impression of the style.
Bottled: Old Freckled Men, Berlin Mart Cider, Creamer Ale II

C4 Pale Ale (Centennial, Challenger, Cascade, Citra hopburst)
