Brewing a London Cream Ale for a picnic in july.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / What could have happened?
« on: April 22, 2011, 08:21:50 AM »
I brewed my third batch, an amber. Tasted it after the specific gravity check it was on target and tasted good :), transfered from primary to secondary for 7 days checked specific gravity before bottling. Tasted it again and it had no taste at all >:(, specific gravities where within spec so I bottled to see what will happen, in 10 more days I will find out. What could have happened? What could I have messed up? ???

I wouldn't try a lager for my first several batches, but maybe you could do a lager-like ale, like a cream ale, with that extract... Something 100% that DME up to about 1.048 and fermented with US-05 (with about 20 IBU worth of a neutral noble-type like Magnum or Mt. Hood at 60 min) would probably do the trick.

I plan on it being an ale, about 1.050 and ferment with Wyeast American Liquid Ale Yeast #1056, and Cascade at 60, 15, and 0.
I look forward to trying a lager as I grew up in Pottsville PA and drank Yuengling and like lagers.


Thank you for the input, hope to brew it this weekend we will see how it turns out.

Has anyone used this, a buddy ask me to make a beer akin to bud or miller in color. Would this work? Is there anything special to do because of the rice? This is only my 4th batch and I am making for someone so I don't want to screw it up.

Alright!  Welcome to the forum Popeye.  You're my childhood hero.  I live by your motto: "I yam what I yam."
I know you eat spinach.  What kind of beer do you drink?

Thank you all!
