Brewed in a bag for this one and got a great color and great flavor. Couldnít be more satisfied.
Primaried with alcohol boost for 3 months, two weeks secondary maybe an over kill but definitely smoothed out over time not for the first timer intro to dark beer. But definitely not a disappointment after some aging had it in the keg past conditioning two more weeks and I cant wait for the next glass. Try my friends and enjoy.
This kit is quite good, just a dark ale with not too much alcohol and a nice balance of malt and hops. I added the heading powder to this kit and it was a bit much; when I opened the beers after a few weeks the foam would begin to spill out of the bottle if not poured into an Austin Homebrew glass. A good kit for a beginner as it is difficult to ruin and the finished brew is palatable even for those who dont prefer dark beers.
Well worth it. Easy to drink and smooth. The 1% alcohol boost is a very nice touch.
Buy. This. Kit. My first partial mash and I must say, it's excellent. 2 weeks primary, 1 week secondary, bottled. Been in the bottle for 1 week and already I have consumed THREE, which is unusual for me. I normally just try one at week 1, one at week 2, and then wait a few more weeks before consumption. Great flavor. Not a porter, not a stout, a black ale!! I used S-04 yeast and then dry hopped it with 1oz of Centennial. Pleased with the Galena bittering and flavor hops. Will definitely buy this again...may see what Amaillo dry hopping provides.
