It’s been two weeks since my last batch of beer has been bottled and placed for conditioning. I’ve been thinking about what beer to brew next and I’ve finally come up with something.
For a while now I’ve been tinkering with the idea of creating a recipe for a vanilla cream ale. I’ve finally sat down over the past few days coming up with a recipe. I finalized the details this morning and put in the order for my supplies. They should be here on Wednesday. Also on Wednesday, Holly is going to town for a few items since she got paid, and I’m going to have her pick me up some vanilla and honey. If all goes well, I will have a fairly good first draft of my vanilla cream ale.
Recipe thus far (suggestions welcome):
.5 lbs Honey Malt
1 lb Crystal 10L
1 lb Wheat Malt
2 lbs Honey
1.5 lbs Candi-clear
7lbs Alexander’s Pale Malt Extract
2 oz. Hallertauer
1 oz. Goldings (Kent)
3 Vanilla Beans (placed in secondary)
White Labs P53 Abbey Ale
