Comments Made By Homebrewer: "sweet and full of flavor, nice malt and sweet finish, nice malt forward recipe, surprised with the taste for the style-I liked it"
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 the first beer kit I've made. The recipe was super easy to follow and we ended up with some AWESOME beer! Great flavor and color.
