Brewed with South African hops so groundbreaking and rare, they’ve only been used by a handful of American homebrewers before.

Presenting Alpha Leonis Stout...an amazingly complex recipe created by our own brewmasters to showcase exclusive 34° Latitude hops, now available from the hop farmers of South Africa in an extremely limited release.

Named for the brightest star in the ancient constellation Leo, Alpha Leonis Stout is our tribute to the unique tropical stout ­style brewed in the warmer climates of the southern hemisphere. Flavored with rare Southern Star hops and dark crystal malts for a warming rum-like flavor with hints of coffee and chocolate, Alpha Leonis is truly a one-of- a-kind brew in every way.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary Cold Ice Packs with all liquid yeasts. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip, given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

One of the best beers
I initially thought of some of the well known beers I've tried, however this might have come close to exceeding even those. It's creamy, has the dry "Irish cream" quality from the hops, and is simply an overall great beer. I can't recall if I used an Omega English Ale III yeast, or if this was made with Safale, and it may have been made with a starter. It is comparable to the smoothness from aging a 'Northy 12' for 3 months. I should also note that I am something of an astronomy nerd, so this did appeal to me on that level, however even this beer surprised me somewhat.

Any idea as to THE IBU's in this brew? Or the approximates alcohol %?
A shopper on Mar 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: In the test system it came in at about 6.4% ABV and 60 IBUs.
I got a higher than expected original gravity (1.076), instead of 1.065. Could this be that I have less water? And will this increase alcohol content of my final product?
Joshua T on Apr 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, if it is more diluted that would cause a high reading and more alcohol in the end.
The instructions for this kit indicates adding 3.15 lbs. dark malt syrup and 1 lb. DME with 15 minutes left in the boil. Once those are added, do I bring the pot back up to boil and then boil for the remaining 15 minutes, or keep the timer running even though adding the ingredients will stop the boil and let the 60 minute time run out even if the pot doesn't return to a full boil? I am using an electric stove to boil. Thanks!
A shopper on Apr 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You want to keep the timer running during adding the dme/lme.
would the omega hot head or omega tropical yeast go well with this beer?
