Getting amazing with age
Don'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.

Great starter brew kit for some who has not brewed in 20 years. It is a lite beer with flavor and low bitterness.

Delicious Ale
I 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.

Smooth Nut Brown Ale
Excellent 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.

Bad 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.

1st beer attempt, great choice
Tasted 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.

Qualit products
Simply beer kits are good as they are, and also a very cost effective base for more adventurous brewers. I plan to add pumpkin and spice to my brown kit to make a seasonal brew.
