Denny's Yeast in a Cream Ale?
« on: November 24, 2009, 05:54:37 PM »
This year's annual Black Friday Brew is going to be a Cream Ale fermented with Denny's Favorite 50 yeast left over from a brown ale I did 6 weeks ago. I'm not looking to stay within all the guidelines, but I thought it'd be interesting.



What should I expect?

If it was me, I'd bump up the corn another 1/2 lb.  The 1450 will make a great cream ale, but it may have more mouthfeel than a cream ale typically does.

That's the beauty of Black Friday Brew Day! Make something just tad bit unconventional. I'm not going to go crazy and add smoked malt to a pilsner or dry hop scottish, but I thought what the hell. I had a cake and I thought I'd give it a go.

BTW, krauzen has almost completely fallen and I plan on bottling this and a soured cherry-infused blonde in a couple weeks. Gotta get this stuff all in before the baby comes!
