An English-style "session" ale, low in bitterness, but big on flavor. Usually served on-draft in England, it is a beer with a slight roast flavor from the chocolate colored malt. Lower in alcohol than most ales, thereby allowing you and your guests to quaff several pints in a tasting "session". It is best consumed within 2-8 weeks in the bottle, but will age nicely over the course of 3 months.

  • Estimated Original Gravity:1.032-35
  • SRM (Color Range): 15-16
  • IBUs: 22-25
  • Estimated Alcohol Percentage: 3.4%

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.
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.

Delicious session beer
Deliciously creamy on beer engine, poured from top, no sparkler needed.
Chocolate, dark with long lasting head. Lots of body. Low abv so sinking a couple Imperial pints are easy to enjoy.
While I love the tap handle template, in this case a pump clip template would have been better, ha ha! I had to cut and rearrange the label to fit.
Absolutely recommended and I will definitely buy again!
I used recommended WY1318 which may now become one of my favorite yeasts. Just give it lots of headspace in the fermenter.
I had to cut the label and piece together to fit the pump clip
Lovely pour from my beer engine, poured from top, no sparkler needed.

Great beer
This is a very good beer and is easy to brew. It tastes great after two weeks in the bottle but is amazing after about 3 months if you can wait that long!!

A Good Mild Beer
This kit will make a nice, mild brown ale that is not overly malty or "dark" tasting that both light and dark beer drinkers will enjoy. A simple and easy recipe that will produce a very drinkable beer.

Mellow and Tasty
This is a great intro beer, and drinks very smoothly. It strongly benefits from a clean fermentation; you will have excellent malt flavors from it. I suggest adding about 4oz more of chocolate malt (on the other hand, I always add chocolate malt...). English Ale yeast or WLP001 do great with it, go for lower temps (62-65).
