4th or 5th time buying & using this kit. Reliable, good beer. Never been disappointed with these kits. Go for it! (Full disclosure: it's on the shelf with 3 other kits. Going to brew this one soon!)

Make It Drink It Most Important Enjoy What You Made
This is so much better than the name brands on the shelves of most stores. Most importantly I made it, if it turned into a flop, I made it and I’m to blame, but I’ve made several of these kits and never had a flop. Thanks Midwest

great beer for the money
This is a great tasting beer I added 1/4 lb of crystal malt to the steep but it is good without that.

BEST ANSWER: I typically buy these kits 3 or 4 at a time and when I get the package, first thing I do is put the yeast packs in the fridge and the hops in the freezer. Both the yeast and the hops are said to be good for up to two years if unopened. I keep the boxes in the basement on the concrete floor, it is my understanding that as long as you keep the extract in a temp controlled area (60-70F) they should be fine for up to a year, some web sites even say 2 years. Happy Hopping!
Has anyone tried added a bit of honey when brewing this brown ale? Good results?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I added 2 oz honey as a conditioning sugar. I liked the results. I tried my friends batch without the honey. Made it slightly sweeter and we'll...a touch of honey flavor. Very very slight.
What is the final gravity for this beer?
A shopper on Feb 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The kit instructions only had OG of 1.048. I brewed at OG of 1.036 and a FG of 1.008. I didn't deviate from anything either.
Is the resulting beer anything at all like a Dundee's Nut Brown Ale? I am a novice when it comes to brown ales but found that I like Dundee's. Thank you.
A shopper on Dec 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Never had Dundee's. It's not really a nut ale. I do think this brown ale is a good base recipe, and improves greatly with different steeping grains or hops. Maybe if you can find out what grains and hops they use you can try tweaking your brew.
Are you considering other styles to add to the series?
K E on Jun 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Maybe so! We are happy with the response so far to the kits we have offered in this line, and we may introduce more beer styles later. We're glad you're interested! -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
What is the abv of this beer?
M P on May 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The ABV of this beer is approximately 5.0%.
How long after I receive this do I have before I need to brew it. Might want to buy multiple styles.
B E on May 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The shelf life of the kits would be 3-4 months with no problem; after that the specialty grains in the kits would start to be a bit stale. The other components would be fine for longer than that, though. - Mike W, Midwest Supplies
are these simply beers extract kits or all grain
J E on May 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All the "Simply Beer" kits are extract kits, simplified as much as possible! - Mike W, Midwest Supplies
