Awesome kit
I've been a huge Anchor Steam beer fan for years and when I started brewing about a year ago, I knew I wanted to brew a clone steam beer. I was not disappointed, this beer tastes incredible. My friends that I have shared it with have also given it great reviews. I plan to start kegging my beer pretty soon, and this will be the first beer that I keg. I plan to brew this kit on a regular basis._x000D_I went with the liquid yeast, by the way.

Sam Adams Clone
Brewed this with the wyeast. Used a starter. Hit all my numbers, aged for 4 weeks in secondary at cool temps._x000D__x000D_Essentially this beer is a like a better tasting version of Sam Adams Boston Lager. If you put them side by side your average person would have a hard time to tell which is which.

Great kit worth tying again
This was one of my first kits. Brew went well Primary and secondary were near perfect at 62 degees.Bottled it and after 2 weeks tested and it had the carbonation of iced tea. Left it conditioning for 2 more weeks and it was fantastic! I gave some to a friend who hasn't tried it yet after almost 2 months, should be amazing, I used Wyeast for that batch ordered it again for the summer months using dry yeast. I will let everyone know!... important fact like all homebrews the more patience you have to let it sit the better the beer!

California Steam Beer
One of my favorites to brew and also well liked by my friends, this beer is flavorful and refreshing with just the right mix of hops. Goes well with most foods and is also good to have simply to share a beer with friends and relax.

Have to use liquid yeast
This is fantastic. I think a lot of the crisp flavor comes from the liquid yeast. A crowd favorite, everyone enjoys it.

Nice light beer
I normally make Pale Ales and other more robust flavored brews, but wanted to get something in the bottle that wasn't as intense and the the wife could enjoy. This one is a winner. It's crisp with a mild maltiness and lightly hopped. It's full enough to know you're drinking a good homebrew, but light enough that you can down 3 or 4 in an hour without falling out of your chair.

Crowd favorite
This is a great middle of the road brew. This is a great alternative to brewing a lager that taste great with out having to worrying about temp control.

Best Beer that I have made
This has been by far the best kit that I have made in my 2 plus years of homebrewing. A very smooth, drinkable beer for summertime enjoyment.

liquid yeast is recommended, but you recommend not shipping liquid yeast during summer months? So now what do I do?

BEST ANSWER: The Saflager S-23 Dry Yeast option should be good to go!
