Notes

Version I: Fermentation start very slow, un-Kveiklike. Dry cuked with 2 lbs peeled cucumbers after fermentation. 1.051 OG 1.006 FG. Loral hops.

Version II as described above. The recipe below from u/DrMarigold was my starting point or inspiration point!

"u/DrMarigold--
A couple weeks ago, I posted a recipe for a cucumber cream ale which ended up tasting amazing. The beer was my attempt at a clone of Mill House Brewing Company's "Cucumber Blessings", and I just so happened to run into one of their head brewers at my job! I told him about my recipe and he gave me some advice, so now I present to you my new and improved Cucumber Cream Ale.

1 Gallon Batch

Mash: 1.6lbs Local Pilsner .3lbs Flaked Corn .1lbs Carmel 10 Half of a sliced english cucumber, diced

Boil: .1oz Cascade @ 60 .1oz Motueka @ 30 .1oz Motueka @ 15 .1oz Motueka @ 5 Zest of 1 lime @ 5

Safale - 05

Infuse with additional half of a diced cucumber soaked in 1/4 cup of gin for 3 days at Secondary fermentation."
