Smooth with a kick
I just finished up my 1st batch and ended up with around 9.5% for my final ABV. The box says that I should have had around 10.3% so I'm happy with my results. I followed the directions and went directly into a keg after fermentation. Like one of the other reviews posted. This stuff is very easy to drink so you have to watch it. If you drink one 22oz you definitely know that you drank something with a kick.

Best Beer that I Have Made!
I made this per receipt except I added an additional pound of light DME and one additional pound of corn sugar. I used 2 packages of the dry yeast that were re- hydrated. You will want a blow off set up for the first 3 days. I brewed the beer on June 21, 2015 and am am trying it today (07-30-15) after being in the keg for 4 days.The beer came in at 10.9% ABV. I would encourage anyone that loves a big Belgian beer to give this a try. The balance between a lot of hops and malt are perfect! defiantly Belgian style with coriander flavor, sweet, fruity and a alcohol back bone. I made this with Thanksgiving and family in mind, it may not last? I might need to schedule another brew day soon. This would cost $15.00 for a four pack in the store if you could find it,

Not bad, long ferment though
I just drank the first few from my first batch of this beer and it's not bad. Mine came out at 10% ABV which is amazing considering it just does not taste like it has that much alchohol but it does. You have to be real careful with this one, one 22 ouncer and you will be feeling it big time. The one take away on this one for me is that it seemed to continue to ferment for a long time. I had it in the secondary for 4 weeks before I felt comfortable bottling it, I also forgot to do the dry hopping, but the hop flavor was fine for my taste, so i'll probably do it that way again. I'll be making this one again.

Top notch
The folks at Midwest are the best, they go out of the way to ensure they take care of their customers. This is the one and only place to get all your brewing supplies!

Spectacular
This recipe is a real winner; the best that I have brewed. You should know it will take a good 4-5 weeks in the bottle for carbonation (or at least mine did).

Buy from Midwest for 2 reasons: (1) good product, (2) excellent support if you need advice on anything.

Drunken Farmer 5stars
Awesome product, citrusy at first and spicey to the tongue. There is a reason for the name "Drunken Farmer" a couple pints of this and the cows wont be the only thing tipped over. This is not a beer that is rushed from brew to drink, it needs at least 45 days aging and then it is the best ever. 4 out of 5 of my last brews

An Exceptional and Great Tasting High ABV Beer
Could not have been happier with the outcome. Got the whole family involved in brewing and bottling this litle winner. Originally bought it as a lark, loved the name and the abv%, but later found out this beer is amazing! We took the opportunity to unveil the finished result at a large birithday gathering. The crowed almost wiped out the entire inventory! Amber, Lager, and IPA lovers alike will find this to be a great brew, all the way around.

I've never used a secondary fermentor. I've always brewed in just the glass carboy with great results. Does this beer have to have a secondary fermentation?
victor c on Jan 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've made this one a few times, once with a secondary fermentor and twice without. I didn't notice a huge difference in taste or body either way, except for the large ammount of sludge in the bottom of fermentor when it was time for bottling. Last time I made this i "filtered" the beer through a paint strainer stretched over a wire screen strainer to ensure that the amount of hops and trub transferred to the bottling container was minimized.
I live in Florida. We keep the house at 76. The fermenting range for this beer is 65-72, will 76 hurt it?
B O on Aug 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think if you keep the surrounding are at 76 you will be OK. I have made several batches and live in Texas. At night my air gets down to 72 but during the after noon 76 is more like it. The beer ferments fine and tastes great. I usually store it in the secondary for 6 weeks after fermentation.
What is the IBU rating for this beer ?
A W on Mar 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Anywhere from 9 to 11 depending on how long it ferments and how much water you use it's a 6 gallon kit I only used about five and mine was 10.5
Is this an extract kit?
W K on Feb 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is indeed an extract kit.
When doing the hop additions, do the hops stay in during each addition or do you remove the hops, boil for 15 minutes, remove those, then add the next hops and boil those for 15 munutes, remove and add the next hops and so on? Also, when dry hopping, do you just pop the hops pellets right in your secondary fermentor or is there a process that needs to be done?
B A on Nov 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Tony

You'll just leave them in--no need to try to get them out. When you pour the cooled wort into the fermentor

you can leave the hop sludge/residue behind as much as possible.

As for dry hopping

you can just pop them in the secondary. If you wanted

you might consider putting the hops into a straining bag. This will allow you to remove them later

and it might help the siphoning go a bit more smoothly.

Cheers!

Charles
I'm doing the second fermentation in a 5 gallon glass carboy. What would be the recommended best way to dry hop this beer? Also, any advice on duration of dry hopping would be helpful. What is the effect on aroma/taste of 1 vs 2 weeks?
Joseph M on Dec 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We just added the hops right into the carboy, and left for the full 2 weeks, the longer the better, it adds to the flavor, we also let it set in the bottles for 4 weeks before opening.
This is a good beer and ages well.
Well it's been 2 wks primary, racked to secondary started activity again, been 4 wks in secondary. Dropped dry hops 1 week ago went active again, still working albeit slowly. Looks ok, just wondering about the prolonged action. Any suggestions!!
J W on Feb 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jethro, The bubbling is probably just residual CO2 left in solution. When you add the dry hops, it provides a nucleation point for the CO2 to escape, similar to putting pennies or marbles in a pot of boiling water. If you have a hydrometer, you can take a gravity reading to see if it is finished. Otherwise you can take a sample and taste it. It shouldn't taste sweet. Sounds to me like everything is normal there! Let us know if you need anything else.
2 questions- 1) did anyone find need to use a blowoff valve for this or was the standard air lock sufficient? 2) the sg of this kit is 1.088 but the yeast I ordered with it (Omega liquid) I believe only has enough for a beer with sg up to 1.060. Should I plan to do a yeast starter for this kit to ensure I have enough yeast?
