Description

Details

Take a step back from more complex recipes and take a look at what Solitaire Session Ale can bring to the table. This simple SMASH (single malt and single hop) recipe serves as a showcase for time honored base malt, and then brazenly flaunts the distinctiveness of Simcoe hops. Pouring with a dazzling light golden-straw complexion and endowed with a luxuriant snow-white froth cap, Solitaire Session Ale is a true beauty to behold. As the pint is raised, fragrant impressions of passionfruit, pine, dank earth, and mild citrus dazzle the senses. Upon sipping, the clean, grainy, honeyed malty aura marvelously fuses with the unique dank, pine, and fruity undertones tendered by the smattering of Simcoe. Should you feel compelled to partake in a few pints, fret not; this ambrosial session ale tips the scales at a mere 4.5% ABV.

GREAT summer light ale and easy to make.....
I bought this during the 4th of July sale. Picked it as a Light Summer Ale. I brewed it up, and it was pretty easy with the recommended DRY yeast (made a yeast starter too). My batch came out at 5.3% ABV and 40 IBUs. A tad above recipe on IBUs, but the hops in the kit were measured in oz. NOT AAU%, and the AAU% of the Simcoe hops was 12.6% relatively high. Kegged it, and finally tapped it a few days ago. Had some friends over and it was a real crowd pleaser. They ALL liked it, wow!Plan to buy again, if it ever goes on sale again....

Great light Summer Ale
Made a few changes to the recipe. A separated the LME and used 3lbs at 60 min along with 1lb of Pilsen DME. I saved 3lbs LME for burnout and let it sit for 10 min before cooling. Hop schedule remained identical to the recipe. OG-1.049, FG-1.010 so I got the ABV% just over 5. For IPA lovers that want to drink a few extra without getting smashed this is a hit! Color is light straw, flavor is all Simcoe! A very nice summer beer! Next batch I'm going to dry hop half Simcoe/half Amarillo, we'll see what happens!

does this kit contain bottle caps?

BEST ANSWER: No Midwest Kits come with caps to my knowledge, this one definitely did not. Caps are always a separate purchase
