All Grain Beechwood Aged Cream Ale Recipe

Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a Cream Ale aged with Beechwood chips. Crisp, clean ale with light notes of wood, citrus, and sweet malt. Medium-light bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and smooth refreshing finish.



10 lbs Pale 2-row

1 lb White Wheat Malt

8 oz Flaked Barley

6 oz. Flaked Corn


1/2 oz. Columbus 15%a, 60 minutes

1/2 oz. Centennial 10%a, 20 minutes

Other: 2 cups of Beechwood chips

YeastWhite Labs WLP080 Cream Ale Yeast Blend or Wyeast 2112 California Lager


Mash all grains for 1 hour at 152 degrees.

Sparge at 170 degrees.

One hour boil with hop regimen above. Add herbs during last 5 minutes of the boil.

Ferment at 63-68 degrees.

Rack to secondary and age for 3 weeks with Beechwood chips. (works well aging in a homebrew keg with the Beechwood chips in a nylon bag).

    Just curious as to why the mention to “Add herbs during last 5 minutes of the boil?” Are there herbs in this recipe?

    Looks like a great springtime beer to brew.
