Cream Ale Accident
« on: March 25, 2016, 01:47:18 PM »
I left the corn sugar out of my cream ale on accident. Will this hurt my cream ale batch? I realize corn is one of the distinct flavors in a cream ale, so I'm kind of bummed at my mistake. Please advise.

Boil the corn sugar in some water to sterilize it and add it to the fermenter.  Should be fine, as long as you sterilize it.

You're not going to get very much flavor from the corn sugar. It will add to the alcohol content more than anything
