Great "house" beer for your BudCoorMil friends. I like to slam down a couple after cutting the grass, too. The extract recipe won a ribbon using White Labs 001 (California Ale). But the version I liked best (no ribbon though) is with White Labs 051 (California V Ale). Give it a try!

My bro and I brewed this recently. I'm drinking it right now actually. We upped everything in the recipe by 20% to make it what we call a Bigger Cream Ale. We used Cali V and while it's very tasty, I'd like to try it with a cleaner, more neutral yeast. It hasn't lost that funky Cali V taste. It also doesn't have as much hop presence as I would like. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy it a lot. Just not what I expected.

Next time I will leave the grain bill alone, increase the hops (especially the flavor and aroma) by 20% and use the more neutral WLP 001 Cali Ale yeast.

Overall... pretty good...pret-ty, pret-ty, pretty good...

I'm on the fence with this one. One the one hand it is light and refreshing, but on the otherhand...it's a bit lacking in the flavor department (both hop and malt). In my opinion it is a very conservative cream ale and does not show what this style can be when done well.
