Tastes great!

I brewed this up a few weeks ago and the flavor came out great, except that I screwed something up. I have absolutely no head with this beer and it really bums me out because I was excited about this one. I will try it again for sure though.

Where's the procedure

I'm a newby here. Where's the "procedure" part of the brew? - boil times, etc.

WOO-HOO! Awesome clone

Sam Adams Cream Ale is a favorite of mine and I brewed this clone. I even screwed it up!!! (The first time in 35 years of brewing) - and I saved it with some triage. It took 2 1/2 months to fully mature but the wait was worth it. At one month it was way too sweet and it scared me.

I've brewed this many times, hard to screw up, easy to make. Be careful not to fill the carboy up too high, it's gonna BLOW the top off! Let sit for at least 1 month, pour slowly. Nice biscuit taste, easy to drink!


Considering this brew

I've tried and failed at an Oatmeal Stout recipe but I'm still excited to give this one a go. @Bob the Brewer: I might have screwed up mine the same way you did. It's too sweet and maturing VERY slowly in the bottles. What went wrong with yours and how did you fix it?


Would like to try this

I just bought the last six pack of this and love it. I make wind but have no idea how to brew beer and want to make this. Can some give dm step by step directions and any extra tools I will need that differ from wine making? Thanks in advance.
