Our recipe kits DO NOT include grain bags, yeast or priming sugar.

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.

When usually does the fermentation start?
Venelin Pavlin on Mar 28, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Using dry yeast hydrated and pitched within 10 degrees of wort temperature My lag time is usually less than 12 hours, occasionally within 2 hours.
HI beerbrewers! Does this kit come with any hops? If not could you, please recommend any?
Konstantin Filippov on Jan 8, 2021
BEST ANSWER: It does come with hops. One ounce each of Perle and Mt. Hood are included inside the kit.
TL;DR Are all 8oz of included corn sugar supposed to go into the wort on brewing day?
According to the recipe sheet, this kit includes 8oz of corn sugar (which I got in two 4oz bags). Since all the kit listings (including this one) indicate that extra priming sugar is not included, I assumed that all 8oz was for the boil. I got an OG of 1.111 which seems high. I also happened to have some Wyeast 3787 so perhaps I'll still get a beer out of this. Was the line in the instructions about not adding "the" 4oz bag (of which I had two) to the wort because they're generic (they read fairly generically) or did I just double the added sugar for my wort by accident. Thanks
Daniel Blakemore on Apr 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The kits do come with fairly generic instructions. Thank you for your feedback; I will forward this over to our writing team for review and clarification. For this recipe we do add the full 8oz of sugar to the batch at the end of the boil. A 1.111 gravity is pretty high, so you should get a great strong beer out of it with that Trappist yeast. Cheers!

Fantastic - Very drinkable and full of complex flavor
Been brewing for less than a year now and this Belgian Pale turns out to be one of my favorites. I was looking to try something different and the Belgian Pale turned out surprisingly awesome. The Caramunich and Special B steeping grains give this beer a nice copper color and the low hops allow you to taste the complexity in the malt which gives a nice almost raisin-like maltyness. The hops and yeast add a fruity and spicy and flavor with floral and herbal notes. Very drinkable with a creamy, yet dry finish. After finishing a glass my palate craved another. My ABV calculations yielded 5.5% so this has enough alcohol to get the job done without getting you hammered.

The color was a bit hazy and not clear, but that is most likely due to my shorter fermentation and cold crash times (see below)

I am so impressed with this Belgian Pale Ale that I've started a Belgian Ale just to begin playing around with the malt, hops and yeast variations in the Belgian style. I never really drank Belgian ales much, but now I'm hooked.

Brewed this per the instructions. 2.5 gallon partial wort boil, added 2.5 gallons cold water to fermentor along with some Fermcap-S to keep from blowing off (5.5 Gallon Speidel fermentor doesn't leave much head space). Added the corn sugar at last 10 minutes of boil. Pitched liquid WLP-530 Abbey Ale yeast at 84 degrees F. Fermented for only 6 days at 72 F. Cold crashed at 36F for 36 hours, kegged and force carbonated.
Nice copper hue.

Nice Belgian
I brewed as recommended, but replaced the corn sugar with a lb. of Candi syrup 45. This is very drinkable with the Trappist yeast and malt being the main flavor profile. This makes for a very economical Belgian ale.

A Decent Pale Ale
Not a fan of Belgian ales, I brewed this for an friend who was. Obviously, I had my share too. It had a palatable bitterness and sweetness balance, and I used WLP550 Yeast. I like great head retention, so I was satisfied with my final product by using 8 oz Lactose last 15 min. boil and 4 oz Maltodextrin the last 10 min of boil. As always stated, a good month or so of conditioning improved its flavor.

A very good Belgian Pale Ale
A very affordable kit. I used Safbrew S33 dry yeast. The beer has a nice balance of bitterness, sweetness, and spice. I will be making this one again!

Good inexpensive kit, tastes like a belgian - does like more time to mellow
I agree with the poster above, initial Banana and bubble gum is strong with this one. But lucky for me I'm busy. I let primary go for 2 weeks, secondary for 3. It's lost much of its "Banana runt" flavor, and has cleared quite well. Uncarbed it tastes like a Belgian, looking forward to it soon.

I'm in the process of trying all ~ $30 kits from Morebeer, and this is #2 of 4. Renegade Rye is other that was done..and gone in a month. (Excellent!)
I have the Kolsch and APA II going right now.

But if you like Belgians, my wife does!, and want a quick and inexpensive option for the cost of 7/8 of bud...this should be on your list!

a good Belgian
I am not a huge fan of Belgian ales. I tasted this one after a few weeks in the bottle. It was as to be expected, all banana and bubblegum. I waited another month and it was palatable. Remember to give this enough conditioning time, about 2 months, then you'll enjoy it.

Wow, this is really good
I have brewed about 12 different extract Kits from more beer and this defiantly ranks on top of the others I have brewed. I left in primary for three weeks, conditioned in bottles for 14 days and had to try one with tonight. I will let some of them age a little, but with this brew it might be hard to just see it sitting on the shelf without drinking it.
