Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Erik Beer was the president of the local homebrew club, Doze, for a number of years.  During that time he created and perfected recipes for a number of different brews, this easy-drinking Cream Ale being one of them.  Featuring a blend of Pale and Pilsener Malt with some Flaked Maize thrown in to lighten things up, this beer is sure to be a hit.  Hopping is light on this, but definitely enough to balance things and make this brew go down smooth.

When do you introduce the flaked corn?
Peter Saavedra III on Mar 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Peter - You would add the corn as if it was a steeping grain, so before you add the malt extract.

Two pints in and I ordered another kit!
Kit arrived well packaged and labeled. I went with the DME version, and full boil. I rushed it a little (brew day to glass in 9 days) but it came out amazing. Reminds me a lot of Spotted Cow, at least what I remember. I'm typically an all-grain brewer and steeping a pound of flaked corn without base malts seemed kinda silly it definitely shows through in the finished beer. Suspect this is also why corn sugar is added - to replicate what typically would happen in a full mash. It definitely pays off. Also, I left out a pound of DME because I wanted a lower starting gravity...1.049 and finished 1.009 with BRY-97. Had two pints and placed another order.

One of my favorites
Recommend! Made it twice. Shared with friends last weekend. Even the non-beer drinkers loved it. Ordering another kit now before the last bottles are gone!

Too sweet, alcoholic and dark
Full disclosure: I don't think I added enough water to primary, maybe 1/2 to 3/4 of a gallon less than 5 gallons.

At 3 weeks, this beer is brown in color, and has this cloyingly sweet alcoholic finish in taste. It is more malty and porter-y in flavor. I know it's tough to rate a beer when so much of it is the brewer and what they did to it, but I just can't imagine that this is the same beer that others are describing in their reviews. It is not refreshing, it is not easy to drink, it is not a simple summer beer at all. Perhaps in time I will come to love it, but it's just taking up space in my kegerator right now.

I'll revisit it in a few weeks and update this review, but I definitely won't be brewing this beer again any time soon.

Great Beer
I crack the bottle as soon as it was supposed to be ready and wasn't too thrilled. I let it chill in the fridge for a week and oh man did it taste great. I got great feedback from everyone who tried it. I will definitely reorder this one.
