You’ve quaffed more corn than you realize. Though more often thought of as an ingredient in foods, corn has been used extensively in commercial brewing since the European-inspired lager boom of the mid 1900’s. Corn as an adjunct produces a beer with a less satiating, snappier taste, ideally suited to the often warm climate of our country.
Our Old American Ale is a refreshing light ale brewed in the style of pre-prohibition American beers, before the trend began (after the repeal of prohibition) to ever lighter beers with lower hopping rates. Stronger in hop flavor than current mass-produced American beers, Old American Ale includes an authentic malt and corn fermentable malt base, consisting of 30% flaked brewers corn and 70% two row barley malt for the light crisp character only an adjunct like corn can provide.
Choose our Old American Ale if you like a light refreshing ale, and do not have the temperature controlled aging area needed for a lager. Alcohol: 4.8%, IBU’s 23. Includes 8 lbs. of malt and corn extract, flavoring and aromatic hops, 125 ml of liquid ale yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.049. Ease of Brewing: Beginner
