Brewcraft Beer Recipe Kit / Ultimate Series: Heather 'n Honey Deep Brown Ale

Current stock: 0

(BCU140) This is a very unique and interesting beer recipe kit from Brewcraft. For the most part it is an American-style Brown Ale. This means it's a rich, malty beer with a touch of chocolate, just like you'd expect, but with a couple of added twists. First, 3 pounds of Meadowfoam honey has been added to the beer recipe. If you're not familiar with Meadowfoam honey it is out of this world. It has flavors ranging from vanilla to toasted custard. It's a perfect match for this style of beer. Second, Scottish Heather tips have been added to be used in place of finishing hops. This adds a flower/herbal aroma the plays around nicely with this beers toasty overall character.

Each Brewcraft recipe kit contains all the ingredients you need to brew 5 gallons of beer in about 2 weeks. That's over 50 bottles of homebrew!... Brewcraft even throws in the bottle caps. These are "partial mash" kits. That means you get the best of both worlds. You get the ease of using malt extract, and you get the richness of using specialty grains. The hops, grains, extract and other necessary ingredients all come pre-measured to produce the optimal wort for the style of homebrew you are making. The folks a Brewcraft have worked hard to make sure that each of these beer recipe kits brew the absolute best beer possible. And just as important, each beer recipe kit comes with complete and specific directions. They assume you know absolutely nothing about brewing beer. They take you by the hand and guide you through each and every step. (Equipment Not Included)
