Maple Syrup, Bacon and Beer. You will be the brewer who makes this happen, maple, bacon and beer together... on tap... in your house. You will be revered and worshipped like the holy grail.  Low whispers will trail your every move.... "There he goes, the ONE who makes bacon beer".  

As for us... we had to test maple bacon syrup for six months to get it right. Then we had to brew maple bacon beer for another six months to get the recipe right. It was awful. But don't shed a tear for us... we brew beer like it's our job. Well, actually it is our job. 

Complexity! This is a brown ale that is amazingly complex, with no one flavor dominating the other.  We use six different flavoring malts including, Abbey Malt, Caravienne, Crystal 60, Carapils, Chocolate, and Cherrywood smoked for unmatched depth. On that amazing base we add one pound of our out of this World Maple Bacon Candi Syrup.  To make this syrup, real smoked bacon is cooked at high temperature in artisanal small batches of liquid candi sugar. We then finish the beer with a couple ounces of East Kent Golding hops that seamlessly blends in earthy, floral characteristics and adds the final dimension.  With its amazing combination of rich, subtle flavors and mild bitterness this is the perfect beer to have on tap when the weather turns a bit chilly.  

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.
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. For further details, please reference the conversion chart below.

Have brewed before, but maple and bacon were faint, even dry-hopping 6 strips of crushed cooked bacon. Will add second bottle of maple bacon candy from the flavoring section.

Wow! Love this beer. Brewed from extract with the White Labs London Ale yeast and I can't get over how great this beer is. Starts with a very warm and malty brown ale and adds just the right amount of interest with maple and bacon. Not overdone at all - just a wonderful beer. I'll definitely brew this again.

Extra ingredients equals extra flavor
Calagione's Extreme Brewing Book inspired me to go extreme with this recipe: I doubled it in all respects, and kicked in one and one-half pounds of honey. So with two kits, I still made a five gallon batch. My OG was 1.110 and after a second yeast addition using a starter and stir plate plus a one-minute fermenter oxygen blast, my FG ended at 1.030 and a 10.7% ABV. I got great comments on the richness of bacon and smoke flavor. I rate this in the top five of my thirty-odd brews. Adding extra candy syrup as suggested in a previous review would be a good suggestion. I will brew this again, probably as I did this time.

Full of flavour and not overpowering
Subtle brown ale, lots of flavour and not overwhelming.

excellent brown ale
This was an easy to follow recipe. produced an exceptionally smooth brown ale. While none of my tasters said bacon they all agreed it was very good; most commented on a "smokiness", several noted the maple; I found the maple very subdued which I was hoping for. Would definitely brew again but would recommend 1 additional candi syrup if you really want a pronounced flavor. Side note- I added syrup at flame out, perhaps to primary would be wiser...comments welcome please because I will make again.

Is it wrong to drink this with breakfast?
Bought this when it was first on sale, a nice smooth brown ale, with a very balanced bacon taste. It is not over powering, it is the perfect blend of beer and bacon.
