5.0 / 5.04 ReviewsGreat kitCame out smooth with just a little bit of hop crispness. Had a airlock blowout which probably reduced the final hop character. Mashed at around 156 so it is a bit sweeter than I would have liked, but I'm hoping that it will mellow out a little bit with some aging. This was my first all-grain kit and I have no complaints.April 4, 2014Good Brew!Started mash at 154*F and dropped to 147*F over 60 min. All kit hops were put in at initial boil then spiced it up with some additional hop infusions (1 oz Cascade at 40 min) and (1 oz Centennial at 60 min). Initial taste prior to fermentation was smokey with hoppy edge and finish. Utilized starter for fermentation. Once month out and it has mellowed to a REALLY GOOD brown ale with medium-light body, a round chocolate malt taste, and a real nice even hop finish. Still a bit sweet but good balance overall. Great! Took good notes so I'll do this one again for sure.May 24, 2015Very nice beerThis was my first all grain brew. It was also my first kegged beer. For the beer, it was a very nice Nut Brown Ale. Maybe a little too much roasted coffee smell in the nose, but definitely nutty in the nose and taste as well. I bottled a few and then kegged a little over 3 gallons of this. It was very interesting to see this change over the course of time in a keg. After two weeks of being in the keg and fridge, the beer was a nice thick Nut Brown Ale. It was very tasty and chewy. Another two weeks and it had really settled out. It turned out to be a nice crisp nut brown ale, very clear. My friends loved drinking this one! We cashed the keg, what a great feeling! Kinda sad actually. This is a beer that I could have in my keg at all times.March 16, 2010hex nut brownVery nice kit! Mine was a deep brown color with a very nice finish.
