Shaftebury Cream Ale Clone

Fermentables
7 lbs Liquid Pale Malt Extract
4 oz Carapils malt
5 oz British crystal malt (50-60 L)
4 oz Chocolate malt

Hops
1 oz Willamette
1/2 oz Cascade

Blend Together and boil 75% for 1 hour / use 25% for finishing


Steeped grains at 155 for 30 mins in 2 quarts of water, rinsed with 3 quarts 170 degree water. Boiled for 60 mins, using hop schedule above. Cooled to 80 degrees and pitched 1056 yeast. Ferment as mentioned above and bottle with 3/4 cup dextrose for 2 weeks at room temp.

This was my first time (third brew overall) using specialty grains and fresh hops along with an extract and it turned out very well, my best beer so far. All of my friends, who were very skeptical after my first two batches, love this beer and are begging me to make another batch.

Did you use pellet hops or whole hops?

Nice recipe. Looks familiar! Dan's Homebrewing Supplies, Vancouver, BC

At least say where you got the recipe from.

tasty, balanced, nice and light, with a bold background from the chocolate malt.

I can only get pallet hops and will that be a huge influence in terms of taste?

That should be fine, just use 10% less with the pellets: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/whol...amounts-78191/

I just brewed this batch, my 4th so far, and ran into a couple issues along the way (slight boil over...) but still hit the mark on my OG. Hopefully it all turns out okay as I'm looking forward to a nice cream ale.
