DetailsRules, schmules. Rather like a foreign stout without any roasted barley; or an overhopped albino Irish red; or an overgrown American wheat taking Celtic harp lessons; or a Kolsch gone rogue and on the run from the Reinheitsgebot ... pigeonhole it if you must, but this creamy-textured, straw-gold ale begs to be judged on its own merits. Capped with a dense meringue of nose-dotting foam, the pint offers up suggestions of buttered toast, warm cereal, and a trace of fruity, herbal hops.
A full body with thick mouthfeel, more buttered toast and fruity hops give way to a finish evenly split between malty and bitter. Flaked barley and oat malt (wheat DME for the extract version) build density and a viscous texture with supporting grain flavors. Serve at cellar temperature any time of year; if you really want to go nuts, keg it and dispense with beer gas through a stout faucet!

4.5 / 5.02 ReviewsFavorite beer I have madeI have found this is the perfect beer for me. If you aren't into dark beers or IPAs then I recommend this recipe. I made this a few months ago and kegged it. Took it to a local brew fest and everyone loved it. Just bottled a second batch of it. Waiting for it to carbonate. Hoping it is as good in bottle as it was in keg. 5.25%April 21, 2019Purchased

This type of info should be standard with every kit, like it used to be...BEST ANSWER: Depending on what the AA is on the hops that come in the kit, you are looking about about 10-14 for IBU's. For final gravity, you should expect around 1.010 or so. Cheers!What is the Final Gravity supposed to be?BEST ANSWER: When I made it recently it finished at 1.012. Remember that there are a number of variables that could effect this number. As they say 'don't worry , have home brew. Good brewing to you.What should my ABV% look like?
