I have brewed this kit for Stella lovers and they have let me know that it is better than the Stella they buy from the store. Most think this must be how it tastes right out the the Stella brewery.
This kit is a good beer but has zero resemblance to Stella. Very disappointed. Most Austin kits are pretty dependable for great beer. In 3 years there are 2 that were not even in the ball game, this and Hoegaarden.
My Father in Law loved this beer! HE HATES EVERYTHING! My jaw hit the floor! this really is a good beer that you can be proud to serve! I've already reordered and plan to keep this one in the rotation. Thank you AHS! Good Job!
I don't know if I did something wrong but this didn't turn out anything like a Stella Artois. It made really good beer (which should rule out infection) but just wasn't close to a Stella. Mine ended up with much more malty body. Again, I wasn't disappointed in the quality of the batch and I don't know how to describe it, but it surely wasn't a Stella. Sorta a really good grab bag.
I've brewed this kit twice (12/30/12 and 12/30/13). The first version was my first venture into lagers. I did the extract version to focus on other issues specific to lagers and it turned out well. I did have to raise the temp due to a long lag time from the yeast, but once it got started everything went well. The finished product had great clarity, and the taste was very similar to Stella. For the second batch I did the partial mash. I mashed between 152 and 154 for 45 minutes. The wort hit an OG of 1.050 and I used Saflager 34/70 (2 packets) for this batch since I had some left over. The taste of this batch is spot on with Stella. For both batches I used distilled water for top off to 5.25 gal.
