I brewed this following the directions for the first batch. I liked it! I brewed a second batch using 1 teaspoon more of apricot extract, this was more like the real brew. If you like #9 this is as close as you can get. Some breweries change malts, hops and flavorings so this may not be exactly like the current #9; but it will be a good beer.
MH #9 was the beer I drank in college after I graduated from Bud Light. So I brewed it as tribute. I did the partial mash and added 3 oz. of hops (recipe calls for 1.75 oz). 2 weeks in primary, 1 week in secondary, and 4 weeks in bottles. I am very pleased with the way it turned out. It is perfect summer beer. I will brew it again next year.
Finally got to taste this beer after the long wait that comes as a result from bottling (I typically keg). My wife and I enjoyed this more than the Magic Hat version. I ended up using all the hops that were sent instead of following the recipe, it gave this beer a nice pale ale kick that finished with a hint of apricot. I typically find the apricot in Magic Hat #9 to be a little overpowering, but this kit got it just right.
This one really did well at my brewhouse! Didn't take long to mellow out and really had a nice, creamy taste to it.
REALLY disappointed in this one... just did a side by side comparison... color is good... head is good... taste does not compare to original... it made me question whether or not I had actually put the apricot flavoring in the batch... I hit all of my gravities... it sat in the on deck keg for about 3 weeks after conditioning in secondary... not sure what went wrong but suffice to say for me this is not even close!
