I have three batches going right now ; Dads Favorite Cream Ale, Naughty Cream Ale and Horses Ass Cream Ale. I added a tbs of vanilla to the batch of Dads Favorite Cream Ale and am using the 3-3-3 rule. It is 1 week in the icebox. The Naughty Cream Ale is in 2nd week of carbonation, didn't add anything to this batch and will be doing 3-3-6. Lastly I have Horses Ass Cream Ale in fermenting on 2nd week. I added a tbs of cinnamon(probably to much) and 2 cups of honey and doing 3-3-3 batch. I'm sure all these batches would have been great without me adding things, but these partial mashes really made me want to experiment. I also added 2 oz of carapils. I bought all these recipes for next to nothing thx to Mr Beers great deals. Discount recipes with free shipping !!! I will post pics and post my screw ups and hopefully successes . THANKS MR BEER !
This year I tweaked the Mr. Beer Punkin Lager recipe a little bit by subbing pumpkin spice for mulling spices, adding 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and the zest of one orange. Did the standard 3-4 method, cold crashing for two days since last year a few of my Punkin Lager bottles were extra chunky. Tasted fine, just not the prettiest brew. This came out as expected -- a little spicier than the standard Punkin Lager recipe. The orange zest is VERY subtle -- perhaps if I do this one again, I'd do the zest of two oranges for a little extra kick. Otherwise, a perfect autumn brew. Even with cold crashing though, some of my bottles had some of the puree floating around -- not as bad as last year, but I suppose it just comes with the territory when making this recipe.
