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.

Hop Blonde ale
This was probably the best blond, summer ale I have brewed. The combination of hops gives this beer a very nice twist from the usual summer ales I have brewed. This one may end up being brewed year round.

I’ve never actually brewed this kit but have ordered it many times as a base beer to easily modify. I have had great results combining different hops with this kit.

Awesome Beer!
This was a great beer, I'm definitely going to brew this again. It's a smooth blonde ale with a hoppy punch!

A nice clean ale for summer...
Altered the recipe slightly, and didn't dry hop it. Came out great. Will definitely brew this again.

great beer
I got this hopping for something that was similar to a chainbreaker. As far as that it failed but it came out more like a twisted tea. All in all it is a very good beer and would be the perfect summer beer
