We highly recommend purchasing dry yeast during the warmer months. While we offer a complimentary ice pack with all liquid yeast orders, the combination of warmer temperatures and shipping times makes it difficult for your liquid yeast to remain chilled.
This was my first home brew. I cut short the bittering hops by 5 minutes and added 5 minutes on the flavoring hops. I also substituted 1 oz of my own freshly dried flavoring hops. It took 3 weeks in the bottles before I'd achieved proper carbonation. I'm pleased with the results though I don't have a strict recipe version to compare it to. It also had a beautiful color.
Rich and creamy, just like it states. Excellent mouth feel that lingers nicely. Would recommend for easy smooth drinking beer.
