Best Bitter Ale - Extract Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

A really easy-drinking, yet extremely flavorful English-style beer that features English Carastan malt. Light golden color combines with lots of British Kent Golding hops to provide the British equivalent of MoreBeer!'s Light Ale, though with more flavor. Don't let the name fool you; the bitterness is really quite moderate. Start drinking this beer and before you realize it you will have gone through a few pints.

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

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.

My first beer to brew, so I wanted something known to be fairly easy. Also, I like that the MoreBeer kits don't include yeast, allowing me to choose my own.

Brewed as a 'teaching aid" to new brewers. Hit the numbers pretty well; useful for showing tastes/aromas of various ingredients. I'll be interested in trying this as an all-grain kit!

Very enjoyable first beer
This was my first brewing experience and it really hooked me. Nothing like an American beer, a real bitter. I've given out bottles to many friends and every bottle came back with a compliment. The flavor reminded me of bitters I've enjoyed south of London but not any one in particular, the closest would be Brakspear, unusual because this ale isn't hopped with either Fuggles or Goldings.
Very enjoyable brewing experience Morebeer, thanks for the new hobby!

Really nice session beer
Really good right down the middle beer, exceptionally easy to drink. Didn't stay in the kegerator long once my neighbors tasted it.

If you haven't tried it, do it next...
