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.
Now they want $37.99 for the same box that I previously reviewed that cost $25.99 in September. Sorry folks I thought I was helping out here by recommending a kit and posting a nice picture of my brew. Instead it seems Brew & Grow has seen fit to punish anyone who buys it with a price gouge. I would add that I didn't use the flavoring hops in the kit, I had my own homegrown hops that made my batch extra special. I'm not going to buy this one again and have to downgrade it at this price. And no more reviews.
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.
