Black Pearl Cream Ale Recipe?

Post by peterccann » Wed Feb 05, 2020 10:45 pm

Hello,
I've been craving a Black Pearl cream ale and am hoping to brew a clone but have absolutely nothing to go by. Does anyone have any ideas or maybe even a lead on someone that worked for Maritime Beer Company who may remember the recipe? I know it's a stretch but think it could be a fun project. I contacted Sleeman's but they had no info.
Thanks,
Peter

I remember liking that beer a long time ago. I'd be interested in making it too.

I might stop by Hell Bay this weekend and can try to ask about the Dark Cream Ale.
In the meantime, I'm planning to brew this Kentucky Common (same thing) from HBT.
On tap Amber Ale, Dark Mild, Festbier
Bottled Tropical Stout, Belgian Tripel, Belgian Dubbel
Fermenting Pacific Ale, Dark Cream Ale
Next up West Coast IPA

I did not get the specifics, but start with a basic cream ale recipe (e.g. 2-row and flaked corn) and then add dark malts such as chocolate, black patent, roasted barley, etc. to get something you like.

I think I'm going to do something like this, shooting for an OG of around 1.045:

2-Row (67.5%)
Flaked Corn (25%)
Crystal 60 (4.5%)
Chocolate (3%)

Cluster hops @60 for 20 to 25 IBU

Nottingham yeast
On tap Amber Ale, Dark Mild, Festbier
Bottled Tropical Stout, Belgian Tripel, Belgian Dubbel
Fermenting Pacific Ale, Dark Cream Ale
Next up West Coast IPA
