Please Note: In order to better serve our customers, we are now offering our extract recipe kits with either Liquid Malt Extract (LME) or Dried Malt Extract (DME). The majority of our DME kits were converted from the LME version, which is why you may notice slight variances in the extract names and quantities on your recipe sheet. You may also find that your Specific Gravity and ABV% are slightly higher if you choose DME. Whether LME or DME, add all extracts provided according to the recipe sheet.

Love Old Ales. This looks like a good one to put into a barrel.

Into a barrel it went. Tastes great.
Brewed very easy and hit expected gravity. I used US-04 yeast.
This tastes very good but needs to age. I put it into a charred oak barrel that had been treated with Makers Mark Bourbon. I will leave in the barrel until I get the oak flavor intensity that I am looking for. This should age very well and become a great drinker in 6 months to a year.

Great Beer but let it age!
This beer will entice you with it complexity right after carbonation but please give it at least 3 months of conditioning before you let it become part of your regular rotation. I'm at the 6 month mark and it is perfect. All the flavors have come together and it's a real treat at the end of the day. It has become a favorite of mine and all my beer drinking buddies. It will become your's too.
