Our kit will give you a full-bodied and elegant red-amber beer with a subdued German noble hop bitterness and complex malty profile that's great all year round.

I have brewed this beer annually for many years. I find that a double up starter is critical to get the very best this beer has to offer. I have never had a bad batch but the larger starter has really upped the quality of the finished product. It never lasts long once it's done!
Wow - This beer tastes as good as it smelt when boiling down.Longer wait time for finish product but well worth it! Cheers 🍻
The brewing process went well, but I'm ready to try it! It smelled great!
The 2 month+ lager process is a long time to wait to taste the results.
This will also be my first kegging try.
Lots going on with this batch.
This tastes like a professional brewery made it. My issue is that this is not a lager, this is a dark beer with a strong taste.
Terrific color, great aroma, Excellent flavor!
