Forgotten Belgian Farmhouse Ale Brewing Extract Kit
The Belgian Farmhouse Ale is smooth and mellow with light grassy hops and hints of sweet lemon, heather, orange, and flora aromas. Historically saisons/farmhouses did not share its definable characteristics to pin them down as a style, but rather were a group of refreshing summer ales made by farmers. Makes 5 gallons, or approximately 48 bottles of beer.

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.
All taken care of - thanks for the great customer service! Keep up the good work!
The recipe and beer itself is fine (fermenting now) however I did not specify the liquid yeast as it was being mailed. I figured it would be best to go with the dry yeast. When I opened the box, 3 days after it was delivered, I noticed that I got liquid yeast for both my beer recipes. Had I known that, I would have gotten them in the fridge ASAP. One smack pack yeast did work, but the one for the Charlie Brown ale was spoiled. Also, your recipes did not specify if they came with a bag for the grains so I ordered one for each of my beers, which as it turns out, came with bags. I guess now I have two extra.
This one is another of my new favorites among the Belgian beers. Just a good smooth crisp easy drinking beer. Looking forward to being this more.
