Simple Kit, Great Ale!
Just kegged this ale last week. Very refreshing, light to medium body, slightly sweet taste. Will definitely brew this kit again!

Great value!
This kit produces a very smooth and flavorful beer. It's not for hopheads. For those needing an economical alternative for any occasion, this is a great choice.

Great beer, easy to brew.
I really enjoyed this beer kit. Simple to brew, yet makes a great tasting beer. I'm newer to homebrewing and this is by far my favorite yet. I recently brewed a batch with some orange peels added and can't wait to try it. Love the ease of brewing this beer and the final product.

Excellent dog days of summer brew
Steeped 8 ounces of catapults to increase the mouth feel and head. Made an excellent beer. Very light and a little sweet tasting. Will definitely brew again.

Good beer.
It is a very good beer and easy to make. I would suggest using a hop pellet bag during the boil to keep out the sediment. I also left about an inch in the fermenter while raking and be careful not to stir up sediment.

Hello, please tell me, does this kits need any equipment to brew beer? or can i brew it just in aluminium boiler?
N I on Jun 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You will need a boil kettle, and a fermentor, bottles, caps, a capper, as well as a few other items. Here is a helpful beginner's guide that covers all the items you will need.
What is the use-by date on the package? How long will it last in storage before I brew it? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: I don't remember a "use by" date except on the yeast packet. MS could probably answer better than a customer.
What is the ABV of this beer?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Potential alcohol before fermenting is 6 1/2%. Alcohol after fermentation was 5.2%. I hope this helps.
at what temp should your fermentation area be for this beer ?
Dean V on Mar 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Well it's an ale so there is some wiggle room. I converted a freezer to a temp controlled fermentation "room." I set it at 65 for this ferment. And then cold crashed at 38/39 for a week or so. But I've done ales at 70 with no cold crash. Unless you have extreme temps (hot or cold) where you will be fermenting I think you'll be fine as long as you're between 65-73ish. that's my 2-cents anyways. Good luck, let us know how it comes out!
Can you suggest some specialty grains to use with this kit?
Michael B on Mar 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I didn't add any grains, but I think I might add a little caramel and vanilla extract wh n I keg It.
What is the IBU ?
A shopper on Nov 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: QBrew calculates the bitterness at 29 IBUs based on the ingredients.
Can I change for liquid yeast?
M A on Sep 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These kits are not offered with a liquid-yeast option, they have an appropriate dry yeast included. A person can buy any liquid yeast they choose and use it for the kit, if desired. Then they'd have a good dry yeast to keep on hand as a backup in case it is ever needed, which is always a wise thing to do. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
Can I bump the ABV by adding a lb of DME without affecting flavor?
M A on Aug 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't think it would hurt the taste a bit or you wouldn't notice the change in alcohol. The biggest improvement would be to not induce CO2 in the bottle but in the secondary formenter, let it go flat and pressurize it in one your 5 gallon syrup kegs or a Cannon Ball in your refrigerator. Use CO2 from a cylinder with guages at about 15 lbs pressure. It reduces sediment and you can take it with you using a small CO2 faucet or tap it in the refrigerator with a thru the door faucet with a hose attaching the two items. Best wishes. Terry Goyer.

N R on May 25, 2016
