3.7 / 5.07 ReviewsFresh tatsingBeing new to all grain brewing this was a great way for me to get started. If I make a mistake I don't ruin 5 gallons. And I get to learn about the different grains and their flavors.February 3, 2014Good stuff 12 bottlesTried this, I usually like dark beer. I love it and so does my wife who does not like beer. Starts off like a piece of caramel smooth great taste. I use two one gallon fermenters divide the 1.5 gallons between the two. No need to fool with a blow off but two airlocks on and wait two weeks. when it's time to bottle you will get twelve bottles and a little left in the sludge. Why fool with just one 1gallon carboy and waste your brew?December 27, 2014greatNew to brewing, tastes like very clean fresh amber ale. Color and head looked great. I'm sad I only ended up with 8 bottles. Would brew again, but more likely will do the equivalent 5 gallon extract recipe just for the volume.December 27, 2013Great for Those New to HomebrewingThis was only the second batch a beer I have brewed (I've done lots of cider) and it was the first to turn out to be drinkable. I used distilled water since the tap where i live is pretty hard, but i boiled to much of the wort off so i had to top it off with 1 quart of tap and it still turned out fine. It was very hazy in primary fermentation, but if you are careful during bottling, it ends up being fairly clear. After conditioning in bottle for two weeks, it poured with a solid white head that lasted a while and produced a decently hoppy easy drinking ale. It's not the best beer out there, but if done properly, it turns out to be very drinkable and is a beer a new homebrewer can be proud of. I'd highly recommend it and i plan on making a second batch soon.April 2, 2018Purchased
2 months agoMehIt's drinkable, but it's far from great. By the way, the yeast that came with the kit was not viable. I ended up having to use a packet of Safale I had on hand for just such an emergency.March 3, 2014Didn't come out rightNot sure what happened. I've made all grain batches and kits before but haven't had one that came out really undrinkable. Very flat, no head to speak of. Taste was almost citrus-y or orange-y. Again, possibly something that went wrong with what I did but I didn't stray from my usual routine. Everything fully sanitized.March 12, 2017Purchased
1 year agoEasy all grain experienceI didn't want to spend the money on all grain equipment and this kit can be made using pots in your kitchen. The beer came out ok, I may have been off on the temperature and didn't get as high conversion as I'd hoped, or maybe the grain wasn't crushed enough.March 25, 2014

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 2 answersI was just reviewing the directions for the Amber Ale. It doesn't recommend transferring to a secondary. Any reason that's not mentioned?BEST ANSWER: Transferring to a secondary fermenter is a very common thing, and even when directed is more optional than mandatory. Unless you are using a kegging system you can not go wrong with transferring the beer. I would suggest if you do not have a secondary it would be better than nothing to just let it sit in the primary fermenter another week. Two weeks in the fermenter and two weeks in the bottle should be considered the MINIMUM for carbonation and aging.I purchased this kit and it is in the process of fermenting. The recipe calls for 1 tsp. of table sugar per bottle(guessing 12oz bottles), when I put in the numbers into any priming sugar calculator it comes out saying to use about half that amount. ie: 21grams vs. 1tsp per bottle(about 42grams total). I just don't want to over prime or would it not make much of a difference being such small amounts? Looking forward to it and just want it to be right. Thank you.BEST ANSWER: I usually add two tablespoons to the whole gallon just before bottling and that gets me plenty of carbonation.. Sometimes even too much. I don't have an exact measurement for you, but a teaspoon per bottle seems high.
