All Grain HomeBrew Double Cream Ale Recipe
Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a Double Cream Ale, similar to Newburgh Aces Wild. Aromas of lemony citrus and light mint. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel, mildly sweet maltiness, and herbal notes. Medium level of hop bitterness. Dry-hopped with Sorachi Ace hops, and lightly flavored with mint and tarragon. A really cool beer to brew at home.
