4.7 / 5.011 ReviewsReally Great BrewIf you're looking for an American Brown Ale recipe, you may not find a better one. With the brown sugar, Summit hops, two late additions of Mt. Rainier, and an ounce of Palisade for dry hopping, on top of more than 11 pounds of grain, it's a bargain. I used the White Labs California V yeast, which really enhances the malty character. It comes with an ounce of Summit hops for bittering. I used a half ounce at 60 and a half ounce at 45 and the bittering was very nice. Definitely there, but not overpowering the malt. It has a great graham cracker, coffee and caramel aroma, with a hint of citrus from the hops. Overall, a great recipe and value.December 18, 2012Good StartFirst time with all grain brewing and dry hopping. Overall very good! Had a few so far and am very pleased. A different style beer but very good. Definitely worth the purchase.October 2, 2012tasty brown aleA good drinkable Brown ale. It's got plenty of body and a nice smooth finish. _x000D_It's mildly hoppy and pretty strong. I got 82% conversion and it came out at over 6% ABV. It got an extra month in the fermentor to make sure it was done. I used the dry yeast which was fine.July 15, 2013india brownGood brown. Intense hop profile along with a taste similar to a coffee/oatmeal stout. Very good.August 24, 2013its a pretty good brown aleI like Brown ales and when i came across this kit I was intrigued. Its a bit strong and on the hoppy side, but good tasting. I prefer my Brown ales to not be hoppy, but its still a good beer.October 30, 2013Nice brown aleThis is kind of on the hoppy side, maybe a Texas Brown ale. It has a nice mouthfeel and good flavor. 1 week primary, 3 week secondary, then kegged it.January 11, 2014December 31, 2015Best Beer EverI love Brown Ale. This India Brown Ale starts with an alarming amount of alcohol on the front end, but it's only there for the first couple sips. Mine turned out around 8.7%. It has this incredibly smooth mouth texture that makes you not want to swallow. You will be happy you did because in it's wake there is the taste of chocolate with trace amounts of espresso. It is so good you'll want to pour it on your cereal. It's the best beer I've made. I've put away some beer in my time and this is the best beer I've ever tasted. I want one right now.

5 months agoGood kitGood taste, nice and malty, with a coffee and caramel aroma._x000D_This is a good kit for new all grain brewers because it's more forgiving of slight mistakes. I added the sugar 5 days after pitching the yeast so they would first eat up the malt. I kept it in the fermentor for 30 days in total, and I dry hopped for the last 5 days. I used the Nottingham yeast, and am satisfied with the taste.January 10, 2013Smooth and MaltyIt was pretty good - Dark, bitter, malty, and smooth. Certainly let it age for 6 months since it's a bigger beer. This had a good base of a brown ale with the kick of IPA.. Not for the light beer drinkers._x000D_March 3, 2013
