4.1 / 5.035 ReviewsGetting amazing with ageDon't get me wrong, this beer was drinkable after 5 weeks but it’s getting down right delicious after a couple months. I will note that I added a little cascade to bump the IBUs. Really wish I would have saved more! Starting to think I need to order another kit. Yummmmm.May 26, 2018Purchased
9 months agoGreat starter brew kit for some who has not brewed in 20 years. It is a lite beer with flavor and low bitterness.May 24, 2018Purchased
7 months agoDelicious AleI have brewed this a couple times now. It's a nice smooth beer with just a hint of hops. My last batch I mixed in a pound of lactose sugar to make it a bit thicker and add a littleof sweetness. It turned out fantastic.April 25, 2018Purchased
6 months agoSmooth Nut Brown AleExcellent beer and well worth the price. I did add some additional ingredients and it turned out really good. The grain I added, to the boil, was 1 lb of Briess Organic Carapils Malt grain. Also added 1 lb of Brown Sugar to the boil and 1 oz Fuggles Hops. I have shared this beer with others and have gotten many compliments.March 15, 2018Purchased
8 months agoBad yeast?The beer didnâ??t ferment. I followed the instructions to the letter, sanitized 2x (Iâ??ve brewed many times before without failure. The yeast packet was dated 2014, and I think it was the problem. I will not buy from Midwest again.January 2, 2018Purchased
10 months ago1st beer attempt, great choiceTasted the beer after two weeks of bottling, tastes very good and well carbonated. Instructions were great. I skipped the 2 wk racking and left in brew bucket. The lid would not go on so I covered fermenter with plastic wrap and weighted lid (worked fine). I was looking for a beer like Lost Coast Brewery's "Downtown Brown" and this is a good match. I used 32 oz plastic bottles w/screw on lids. Worked well as I did not put in enough priming sugar (direct into bottle as I didn't want to move anything) so opened next day and added more. The plastic was un-squeezable as it carbonated so I knew it was working. After all that, good beer!
I will definitely buy this kit again.November 24, 2017Purchased
