DetailsStarting with complex layers of toasty malt, sweet caramel, dark chocolate and delicate coffee notes, Reindeer Spit then migrates to a curious hop character you may not be expecting to find in an English Brown Ale. Sporting a fluffy coat of tan foam, Reindeer Spit sips with a medium body and finishes with a rich, lingering and luscious mouthfeel. It would behoove you to brew this delicious and elaborate session-strength Brown Ale.

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 6 answersUnmilled or crushed grain: what is the difference in the brewing process and resulting brew? Thanks.BEST ANSWER: Unless you have a mill I would suggest you get it crushed. We ordered this kit once with unmilled and had to figure out how to manually crush the grains before we started. Unfortunately we failed to crush them enough and the brew turned out horrible. In a quest for redemption we reordered with crushed grains and it turned out great. I don't claim to be an expert but if your grains aren't crushed properly it impacts the starch conversion and ultimately ruins your brew. I would assume if you have a mill to crush your grains when you are ready to use them then they would be the most fresh but we never have had an issue with having Midwest crush them for us.What is the grainbill?BEST ANSWER: I made this kit last December, my notes show the following - 9 lbs 2-Row, .75 lbs Caramel 60, .5 lbs Caramel 80, .25 lbs Chocolate, .125 lbs Black Malt. That is my notesDo I need any special equipment to brew this beer? I have the simply beer kit right now.BEST ANSWER: Hi there, this is an all grain kit so you need all grain equipment. Our all grain starter kit will show you some of the needed equipment. You also need a kettle that can do a full volume boil. Cheers!
