Amazing price for a really good stout!
The price is the lowest I could find for a 5 gallon kit, I was expecting low quality, but I was very impressed with how great it tasted, I decided to spilt the batch and add some flavors to a secondary. End result was great on both. The only negative I could think of is abv is alittle low for my taste, but you could tweak the recipe to bump it up. I will buy more of these for sure, as they make great low cost beers.

Bourbon Barrel Stout
I used this kit to brew a Bourbon Barrel Stout. I brewed it according to the directions. While it was in the primary, I boiled 2.5 oz. of oak chips to sanitize. I put the chips into a pint jar and added about 3/4 of a pint of Beam, enough to cover the chips, and let them soak in the fridge. Transferred to the secondary for two weeks, added the chips and bourbon during the second week. Bottle conditioned. Turned out awesome

Can't believe there are only two reviews. Anyone that has tried this has to be amazed! Mostly do partial brews and all grain, but this beer will match any beer by any process. Still can't believe!! My wife, my assistant for 10 years of brewing, also agrees.

Great Stout!
I was thinking this would be mediocre at best and I was totally surprised by the flavor of this stout. I am a fan of stouts and porters and this stout holds up to one of the top 10 that I have tasted. I had a Oatmeal Stout on tap next to this one and this stout blew it away on all points. Has a great coffee and molasses finish.

Awesome stout for the money!
This is a great easy to brew stout with lots of flavor. The beer simply beer kits make a great base with many options.

Great price and the finished beer was very tasty. This was my second time homebrewing and I found the directions straightforward and easy to understand. I did steep a pound of oats along with the provided grains making a very smooth oatmeal stout. I would encourage beginners like myself to start out with these kits.

A great stout for sure
great beer full of flavor would also be good by adding oatmeal or coffee but still great by itself

Excellent Stout
My first brew. I've done wine and ciders on my own and helped others with full grain and extract, but ventured out on my own with this as my first solo beer. Instructions made it simple to follow. 1 week primary, 2 weeks secondary, and 3 weeks in keg for force carbonation. Bottled yesterday. Tastes great, especially for the price. So much so that someone who just switched from extract to all grain was wondering why they did after tasting this. :-) I will be trying more from this brand, probably the cream is next

This beer is pretty good.
I buy these kits several at a time when Midwest offers free shipping. You can not find a better price anywhere. I've made over 20 of these Beer.Simply Beer kits and I tweak almost every one to get the results I want. Keep in mind InBev owns these guys now so if you're one of the brewers that doesn't like corporate stuff... well, you know.

Best you will find for $20
Great stout. I have made it twice, the first time I followed the recipe exactly, the 2nd time I steeped oats in the wort and added coffee secondary. Both came out awesome.

Can I make a 6 gal. batch with this just by adding more water?
A L on Sep 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You could but you are going to lower the overall OG by about 9 pts due to the dilution. This will affect the final ABV from 5% to roughly 4%. If you want to keep the brew as intended, either stay at 5 gal or add an additional 1.5lbs of the same DME the kit comes with. And make sure you pitch enough yeast or extend the primary fermentation time or you are going to end up with an overly sweet watered down beer...best of luck!
This is a great beer as is, but how have you "customized" it, and what were the results (good and/or bad)?
THOMAS W on Mar 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello, yes I have added a couple of things to the recipe. A friend of mine gave me some real cacoa from Guatemala.. I have also added some Cacoa nib bits. Basically.. I added both to the 60 Minute boil. I would recommend just high quality chocolate and cacoa nibs. You can get that on amazon or a health food store.
That stout comes out great. I put it on nitrogen which gives it a nice stout feel to it. Highly recommended
What is the use-by date on the package? How long will it last in storage before I brew it? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: I don't remember a "use by" date except on the yeast packet. MS could probably answer better than a customer.
I'm wondering how much oatmeal to add to make this a good Oatmeal Stout? I'm figuring 1 lb of your Flaked Oats would be enough? Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: Our "Oatmeal Stout" kit uses 1/2 lb, so you might use that as a guideline. I'd suggest up to a pound in a five gallon batch. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
I plan to add 1 lb. of dme to increase the OG and abv but wonder should I also add to the hop schedule to keep it balanced?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I agree with the first answer, the OG is pretty good as it is and I wouldn't increase it much to begin with, but 1lb of dark dme should be fine without addition hops.
If I wanted to use this as a base for a chocolate stout, any recommendations? Include time/quantity for addition. I force carbonate in keg, so I have primary, secondary and carbonate in tertiary.
David B on Sep 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you could easily do this by adding some (1/8 pound) chocolate malt as a steeping grain. You could also add some cocoa nibs to the secondary fermentation.
If I wanted to increase the abv to about 6-6.5% what you suggest?
John R on Jul 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You would just need to add some more fermentable sugars to get the OG from about 1.053 to about 1.063 or so. Adding about 1 lb. of table sugar or DME to the boil would do the trick.
What is the final gravity of this?
C A on Jun 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This kit should end up at about 5.2 % ABV when finished. Cheers! - Mike W, Midwest Supplies
What is the SRM color rating for this beer?
V B on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Right around 30 SRM.
Approximate ABV? And what kind of yeast is used?
J A on May 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This yeast uses Safale US-05. It should ferment to about 5-5.5% ABV. Cheers!
