The 4th of July is around the corner and I am planning on banging out four great American Ales in honor of the Holiday. I’ll post the 4 recipes of the next 4 days but I’ll use this post as an anchor for the brewlog.

The beers I am going to crank out are as follows:

American Cream Ale
American Wheat
American IPA
American Brown Ale

The American IPA is already in bottles and that recipe can be found on this thread. If I can, I’ll crank out another batch of it and dry hop it this time too.

It’s a bit of a challenge with only a little over a month to go before the 4th but if I pitch healthy yeast with big enough starters, I should be able to skip the secondaries and go right to the bottle. (Or maybe its time to get a new kegerator???)

I think my best approach is to brew the Cream ale up, then use the cake from that beer as for the yeast pitches I need for the Brown and the Wheat. That should give me plenty of yeast to get a good fast ferment. For all these recipes I plan to use the Fermentis US-05 yeast. It’s currently my favorite American Ale yeast.

Cheers and stay connected to check the progress!
