Beer Style: Cream Ale
Recipe Type: partial mash
Yield: 5 US gallons
The first original recipe of our homebrewery, this is a light golden ale. Melo's has a good strong head with a taste and aroma alot like Sam Adams Summer Ale. It has a little bit of Lemon Zest in it, but could definitely tolerate 1 or 2 more lemons worth. This is one of our friends favorites and the 5 gallon batch has vanished in no time at all, its pretty darn good.
Steep grains between 170-180 for 30 minutes, then remove and bring to boil.
Turn off heat and stir in Malt extract.
Return to boil, add .5 oz of hops, boil for 1 hour.
With about 15 minutes left in the boil add Irish Moss and last .5 oz of hops.
Stir in Honey with 5-10 minutes left in the boil.
Add lemon zest after the boil, when the heat is turned off.
