William's Honey Cream Ale started out as a traditional mild, sweetish American-style cream ale made with corn as well as barley. The hop flavor is on the mild side, with just enough to balance the delicate pale malt and corn flavors. The addition of our unpasteurized orange blossom honey (at the end of the boil to preserve aroma) is what gives this beer an added depth of flavor and complexity, the honey increasing the body, sweetness, and complexity without overwhelming the delicate hop crispness.

Includes 8 pounds of our blended malt extract and orange blossom honey, selected aromatic hops, 125ml of liquid yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.052. Ease of Brewing: Beginner.
