This is one of our most popular ingredient kits about which we receive a lot of positive feedback from satisfied customers. If you're going to be venturing into new realms of taste discovery, this is a winning ticket we can solidly recommend! Our best selling kit.

My signature brew
Great tasting easy making Ale. Great tasting malt with a nice touch of hops. My friends and fellow home brewers all ask for this one.

A+++ Would brew again
I've made a few beer kits and this is the best one yet. Color is nice, lots of flavor from the dark grains without a lot of bitterness. It ended up a little cloudy, but I think I failed to cool the wort down fast enough. Creamy texture with a nice layer of foam on top.

I used a single packet of S-05 yeast, worked great!

Best kit I've made
I completely forgot about this beer. I made this beer in August. Kegged it in March. I have made probably 10 home brews of different styles and this is the best I have had. I would recommend this kit to anyone who wants a nice malty easy to drink beer.

Talk about getting you money's worth!!!
Love this kit. Very healthy grain portions and a simply wonderful end product. Its the one I grab first every time! I make a lot of beer, but I make the MOST of this one...Superb product!

Might have been good
This was my first time brewing and it came out terrible. This kit is definitely not fool prof. The taste is sour on the finish and I don't think any amount of time conditioning will help it. The problem was my burner in the house wasn't hot enough to bring 3 gallons of wort to a boil, so I ended up over cooking it. That said, I did learn a lot about the process and what not to do. The flavor of the beer is there with good head retention but the off flavor at the end just kills it. I cooked up a batch of October fest this weekend using my outdoor burner and everything went by the book. We'll see if I have learned anything in a couple weeks.
