Pompous Ass Ale - All Grain Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)
Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Big, bold, and full of flavor.  This rendition of one of the most egotistical beers in America is not for the light-beer lover.  In fact, if you prefer a beer that looks and tastes more like water, we recommend you leave this page immediately.  Your feelings might get hurt just reading about it...

Our Arrogant Bastard clone easily has one of the most complex malt profiles of any of our kits.  The clean bitterness from Magnum hops allows the rich flavors of Aromatic, Special B, and Caramel Munich malts to control your taste buds.  The aromatics of Chinook hops blend perfectly with these malts, creating an intense combination of confusion and satisfaction at the same time.  After your first sip, if you're thinking "Whoa. That was interesting, intense, & delicious!" you know you brewed it right!

Tasty specialty grains
First thing I noticed was that the crush was consistent and had not much flour/dust, and the hulls were intact. This made for a smooth and uneventful sparge, and decent efficiency. I wish all kits were at least this good.

One "mistake" I made was wringing out the specialty grain bags after the steep. This got a lot of flavor out of them, and perhaps that was too much. Granted, it's a nice toasty caramel flavor, but with my habit being to oversparge and boil down for maximum extraction, and this (higher initial boil gravity) resulting in slightly diminished hop bitterness utilization, the malts actually overpowered the hopping.

Don't get me wrong; I'm very pleased with the results and look forward to sharing it with friends. I will say that what I got doesn't seem like an Arrogant Bastard clone. Just don't do what I do, and your results will be closer to what the kit designers intended.
