This elegantly simple recipe translates into a deeply complex and brag-worthy American strong ale. The choice combination of pale malt, Belgian Special B, and Chinook hops create a medley of dark caramel, raisin, dried cherry and plum and slight pine flavors all interlaced into a boastful deep copper color. Pouring with a medium-heavy body, Elegant Bastard is a smooth sipper meant to be enjoyed in moderation.

One of my favorites
Arrogant Bastard is one of my favorite beers, and thankfully this clone came very close. It's one of my favorite beers that I've brewed so far. My gravities were exactly what the instructions state. Spent 2 weeks in a Primary and 5 weeks in a Secondary. It was done before that, but I needed to wait for a keg to empty. I definitely want to brew this one again.

2% of precincts reporting
Just had first bottle after 12 days bottle conditioning, after a full 3 weeks in a Fast Fermenter. Used the liquid Wyeast option and still had a lot of yeast in suspension at bottling; however, it settled out quickly and firmly, and I was able to pour a very clear glass of medium amber brew. Crisp, pleasant hint of grapefruit; anxious to see how it ages in the bottles.

Easy drinking
A very balanced easy drinking beer. Made per the recipe and it didn't disappoint. It will be on my list of go-to brews in the future.

Half Hopp
I don't care for heavy hopped beer. I cut the hopps in half and the result is very good.

Sorry ,should i use one or two packages of safale S-04 for this kit
N I on Aug 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I would recommend using 2 packs for this as it is a high gravity beer.
How long do you believe this beer needs to be bottle conditioned? Would it be ready to drink in approximately 3 months?
R S on Aug 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I use a keg system, but the answer is probably the same. I use a primary fermenter for 1 week, and secondary for another. I let it condition in the keg for 4 weeks before I took my first taste. It was good! Two weeks later, it is still maturing. But that's part of the "joy of home brewing".
One or two package of safale S-04 for this kit??
N I on Aug 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This kit comes with a single pack of yeast.
