BM says 14 days at 68 in primary then 10 days in keg.

I am planning on doing about 2-4 weeks in primary, basically just whenever I get the time (and bottles) and then the basic 3 weeks for carbonation.

I think earlier in the thread people were talking about having to cold condition it for a while to get rid of a corn flavor, but I don't remember what post or page that was on.

Even without a flavor to cold condition out I think this beer could benefit from a long time in the cold to help get it crystal clear, and gain some more crispness

How about a Cream Of Saison??
I made this recipe once before and it was great.

6.5# 2-row
1.5# Wheat Malt
1.0# Flake Maze
1.0# Flake Rice
0.5# Flake Rye

Lemon Zest & Grains of Paradise
WYeast 3711
Mash #151 for 75 minutes and = Excellent

I used a pack of the lemon peel from the LHBS and a pack of the grains of paradise.
I also zested 2 lemons as well right at flameout.
I also forgot to put in that I added 0.8oz of candy sugar.

Tastes Great and looking forward for carbonation. Carb'd with 5.3oz of corn sugar.

This is probably a dumb question, but what makes this a "cream" ale?

My basic search told me that a cream ale is either a top-fermented Kölsch or an ale that is pressurized with nitrogen. Is it some combination of the ingredients or the yeast?

Is there a good guide on mouth feel: styles and ingredients used to attain them? the wiki on the topic is pretty lame... this was the best I could find.

Haha, I brewed Jamil's version of a Cream ALe, but used the hop schedule in this recipe. Ended up finishing way lower than I thought 1.008. Now I have a 5.6% Cream Ale.. oops.
