Killer Cream Ale was created by heavyriffbeer
Below is my recipe for a really nice American Cream Ale.

6.0 Gallon Batch
1.052 Original Gravity
12.4 IBU's
4.46 SRM

6.25 Lbs 6 Row Brewers Malt (2 Row Malt or Pilsner Malt is just as good)
2.0 Lbs Vienna Malt (Light Munich Malt can be substituted)
1.0 Lb Caramel/Crystal 10 (Light Carastan or CaraVienne is ok)
2.0 Lbs Pre Gelatinized Flaked Maze (Rice Syrup Solids if needing a sub)

Crush and Mash at 154 Degrees for 60 Minutes with a 1.3 Quarts Per Lb water ratio
Sparge as normal for your system to get 7 gallons of preboil wort

Boil time is a total of 60 minutes
.75 Oz Hallertau Boiled for 60 Minutes (Any Hallertau Variety will due, sub with Willamette or Tettnanger)
.25 Oz Hallertau Boiled for 20 Minutes (Any Hallertau Variety will due, sub with Willamette or Tettnanger)

Cool After boil to under 70 Degrees and pitch your favorite clean ale yeast. Fermentis US-05, Danstar Nottingham, Wyeast 1056 or 1272 work great.

Ferment for 10 days between 65-70 Degrees, Transfer to secondary to help with clarity for an additional 7 days. Rack to a keg or if bottling rack to a bottling bucket and add in 1 ounce of corn sugar for every gallon of finished beer boiled in a cup of water. Allow conditioning in the bottle for 2 weeks, crack and enjoy.

If doing extract use a calculator such as beertools.com and input the entire recipe all grain, then subtract the 6 row malt and add in light DME or pilsner DME to the amount that will give you a 1.052 starting gravity. Specialty malts stay the same, try to steep them in the 150-158 degree range for 30 minutes.

OPTIONAL VANILLA!
At bottling add in 2-3 ounces of GOOD QUALITY vanilla extract that has no added sugar in the ingredients. Additionally you could cut scrape and age the beer on a vanilla bean in the secondary during the clearing process. This is totally an optional thing. The beer is Excellent without it but becomes a real crowd pleaser for the entry level craft beer drinker with the touch of vanilla.

Cheers!

Finally had a chance to brew this and am drinking the first one now and it really lives up to it's name, it's a killer alright, very very tasty indeed. Thanks for a great recipe Jerid, you should give this one a go Gash for a great summer beer.

Bottled up a milk stout today, then brewed a pale ale "Sailing the C of Three Ale." Enjoying a Goat Scrotum Porter now (see Charlie Papazian/Complete Joy of Homebrewing) and feeling the effects! lol

I am looking for the Brewzilla 35l profile to set up my Brewfather equipment setting correctly. Can someone point me in the right direction

SkidBaxter's Avatar SkidBaxter - Thu 5 Aug - 15:05

Packaged up a simple ale today with Idaho-7 and finished with Michigan Copper. Tasty!
