Tip: try aging this beer on 1-2 oz of French or Hungarian Oak Cubes for a great old world flavor!

Our recipe kits DO NOT include grain bags, yeast or priming sugar. To find our yeast recommendations, choose your preferred kit option above and then select the drop-down menu under “Yeast Options”.  For more info, click on the recommended yeast(s) below in the “You Might Also Need” section below. All included steeping grains will come milled.
 
Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.

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.
