This is an excellent kit. Very similar to the real thing. I will buy it again
I was disappointed that Sam Adams changed their summer ale formula in 2019. This kit is a clone on the old formula. It came out excellent both times! Per the comments, I used an extra tablespoon of lemon zest. I used the dry yeast recommendation. Also the instructions should mention to crush the grains of paradise. I took a couple of growlers when I met up with some friends and one of them said it was one of the best beers he ever tasted. I couldnít argue. AHS - please keep this even if you make up a kit for the new formula. I will be ordering this one again and again. Definitely going to be a summer staple.
Made the extract version. Better with age. After about 5 weeks in bottles was amazing! May be my favorite of all that I have brewed. Be patient with this one.
I made the partial mash version with Wyeast American Ale II. I used the zest from five lemons, dried and then ground fine. Added half the zest with two minutes left of the boil, then the rest at secondary fermentation. The beer is slightly darker than the real thing, but nice and clear. The lemon flavor is great. I think the real SSA has a slightly maltier taste than this version, but the beer is still great! I will definitely make this again!
I did the extract version. It was ok, but I would've used white labs kolsch and not the recipe version. The sams is more a kolsch with a lemony finish, not an ale as it claims to be.
