Well then. This has been great except the "*parts of email removed because of proprietary info*". As Charlie Brown would say Aaaaaaarrrrhggg
Thank you all for the input. Here in SanDiego we don't get much cream ale so im forced to make it. The Genesee clone was so popular here I have to make more. Right now I'm going to keep it simple and go with the recipe I found using 2ro,Pils,corn,munic,c20,and barley. Weather it's a clone or not is TBD. The fact that ppl like it is most important. People call it a lawnmower beer. My lawn only fills 1/2 a bag of trimmings. The next ? is while I'm mowing when do I drink this beer? Cheers

Interesting the brewer says he follows RHG. Say that here and you get slapped. LOL

I wouldn't go so far as to say that.

I would... because I have. LOL

So what are you thinking in terms of your water profile?

I ended up going with the popular recipe found online and building a soft water profile. It was really simple. Pretty much plain and pure H2O. For yeast health I ended up Shooting for 50 ppm CA so I used RO water with 5grams CaCl added for a 5.5 gallon batch.
I hope that's right. It was easy so it worked for me. The main purpose of this beer is to taste a cream ale other than the Genesee, which I really like.

Solid water. FWIW I use that same method for 99% of my beers.
