This is the best beer I've made so far! I really love it! Smooth with a nutty and slightly creamy taste. Light enough for hot days, but still has a good body. Left in primary for 3 weeks and straight to bottle. Suppose I could have racked it for a bit more clarity, but not that concerned. 3 weeks in the bottle and it is so ready to drink. I'll do this again for sure!
Made this with the alcohol boost kit. This makes a great high gravity ale. I've tried the booster with other beer kits and the results were unpleasant. If your looking to make a beer with some kick that still tastes good then try the stormcastle.
Made the all grain version and am really pleased with the results. After 10 days of primary & 7 days of secondary fermentation this appeared to be a good dark ale. Just tasted my first bottle after 3 weeks in the bottle....still a little green, but had a good head and just the right blend of maltiness & hops. I bought this kit because it was cheaper than the AHS 6 malt amber ale...so far I think I prefer the Stormcastle.
Very tasty beer. If you want it a little more creamy and slightly sweeter than Newcastle, try adding a few handfulls of light brown sugar.
had one of these from the back of the lager locker last night, getting more mellow with age, I still have a case in the cellar, may wait a month and break them out. Nice earthy flavor, rich malt, very good beer for $25 and some change, used dry yeast as I do with most ales, nice beer.....
