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.
Prepare yourself for this HARD CORE mother of all Russian Imperial Stouts! This may be the darkest experience of your craft beer life, so sit down and hold on to your glass! The HARD CORE starts off black as night with a thick creamy brown head. Right before this HARD CORE hits your lips, the aromas pop of dark roasted malts followed by dark chocolates and fresh pressed coffee. Flavors explode while the hops just sit back and hint in the background. Some HARD CORE weight is in this brew! Got to love a beer you have to chew! Makes 5 gallons, or approximately 48 bottles of beer.
