I just finished brewing this up. Used Golden Promise instead of US 2-Row. Used 1oz Cascade at 60 minutes, 1oz Cascade at 5 minutes. Ended up with 6.5 gallons at 1.042. Gonna be drinking it in 5 weeks with family.

I like using Hallertau for cream and blonde ales - lighter beers like this. You can plug the amounts, AA% and boil time into BeerSmith or one of the other calculators to figure out how to hit the IBU level you want.
Probably should have checked that before I brewed. Looking like I'm going to be in the 30 IBU range, juuuuuuust a bit outside of the cream ale standard. More like a Kolsch or Pilsner range. Oh well, looking forward to see what I get!

How long should the US 05 take to krausen? About 4 hours after pitching I had patches begin to form (Saturday Night). All of Sunday I had about a fist sized portion on top and today I have 2fists in size but its running verticly down the side about 12 inches. Looks like an iceberg.

I stashed the keg with my first batch of this behind our table at a local Chili/Salsa cook-off and beer tasting event. My co-workers and I enjoyed quite a bit of it and also shared it with folks stopping by the table. It was the perfect beer for this event. The batch came out INCREDIBLY delicious and received tons of compliments.

Thanks again for the recipe. I will definitely be brewing this one again.

Take a gravity reading. I brewed 10 gallons of this about 3 weeks ago. I used Nottingham on half and S-05 on the other. The Nottingham never krausened. I was worried, so I took a gravity reading and it had already finished.

Update.

Still bubbling along after 6 days in the mid-upper 50s.

OK, so next weekend I am going to my folks for the weekend, we are going to brew this there, then when I get back I am going to brew a batch for myself. Original recipe, none of the changes that this thread came up with.
I will let you guys know what I think, and what all my guests think.

I use Pilsner when making light blonde or cream ales.
