Product Details
It's brown, it's named after a large North American ungulate, and its name suggests oral incontinence. Ah, we market product with our minds, but we drink beer with our mouths! Which is why this American brown ale is your new favorite session beer. Dense layers of malt, caramel, baking chocolate, and a hint of light-roast coffee give way to reveal a hop character you'll be surprised to find if you're used to drinking English brown ale. The finish is complex but balanced, and the gravity is not so high as to keep you from having another.

as good as it is easy
i got two 1 gallons and mixed them together to ferment in my mr. beer keg. started 10/3 left in fermenter for 3 wks, bottled and tasted after 1 1/2 weeks, the beer was OK. Tasted again after 2 1/2 weeks still just OK....then after 3 1/2 weeks in the bottle something magical happened and the beer was awesome! This was my first "real" beer and i was so proud of myself that I drank 6 while making my first all grain Hefeweizen. Get the kit...wait 6 1/2 weeks and enjoy

Best Beer So Far!
This is my 4th brew. I cannot describe my delight with this particular kit! I have already ordered it again! (I’m going to make it into a Pumpkin brew.) I’m love the complexity and depth of this recipe. I guess there is a reason that it is SO popular! :-)

Just as expected, no problems
Kit came in fine shape. I won't be able to brew it until I put my temp controller together for fermentation. I wish that Northern Brewer would deliver via USPS to APO addresses. Northern Brewer has some great products, but it costs me more for shipping a one gallon kit than the kit itself because I have to ship it to family in the US and have them forward it to me using standard USPS shipping overseas.

Great Brew!
Brewing was easy, and filled the home with a nice aroma. The final test was even better, flavor turn out great. Friends were amazed at the brew and inquired for more. The reviews for this brew convinced me to give it a try, and with the results definitely was not disappointed. Great Job NB!

Love it, love it, love it!
Creamy texture, rich flavors, magnificent foamy head. First small batch I made. When i make it again i will increase the hops and be a bit more careful with the amount of water i use. i think that 5 quarts would be the best volume to start with (absorbtion, etc).

high FG, but still delicious
Have brewed this kit twice and have been happy with it both times. However, my FG the first time was 1.025 and the second time it was 1.02. Ive heard thats normal for darker extract kits so dont be surprised if yours doesn't finish very low. And dont worry, it will still be delicious.I plan to continue to brew this kit regularly. Like the product description says, it will quickly become your favorite session beer.

I bought this for my first beer kit to see if I could make a braggot out of it, added 1.5# honey at end of boil as well as anouther 1/2 oz willamette hops and fermented for 3 weeks before bottling then 4 weeks in bottle.....WOW what a great taste. will definitly make this in a 5 gallon batch next.

Good Easy kit
I got this kit to make in a new 1gallon fruit wine kit.To keep the 2gallon bucket 'clean', I fermented in the 1gallon jug with a black tshirt over it.I brewed it as more of a 'micromash' with about 12oz of base grains in with the specialty grains. I used 1/2 packet of rehydrated yeast. Came out pretty close to the 5gallon batch.

When I moved the wort from the pot to the carboy, the level was a couple inches below the "one gallon" lettering on the side. I know I started with the right amount of water, but should I have added more at some point?
L A on Feb 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The instructions say to add water up to the 1 gallon mark
Im new to home brewing and this is the first kit I've made. After about two days, I noticed that the yeast is not working hardly at all on the the second day of fermentation. Is this something I need to worry about or just wait until bottling day on the 27th of Feb?? Thanks in advance.
Eddie M on Feb 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they will activate if the temperature gets up to the appropriate range. You can also wrap the fermentation vessel in a towel/blanket to help retain heat if the location tends to be cold. However, if the temperature gets too high (75 degrees or higher), this can create too-rapid fermentation conditions, which lead to off-flavors in the beer.
Does the 1 gallon kit come with yeast?
K E on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it came with everything that was needed for the recipe
Is this beer able to be shelved for an extended period of time? (2-3 months)
Michael H on Jul 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have found no issues storing any of the recipes I've made. I do small batch so drive the 6 pack right away and save up the remaining 4 bottles for months until I have a variety pack of kinds to share.
Do I need to rehydrate the yeast like the yeast package says, even though the instructions do not mention it?
A shopper on May 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, we do not recommend rehyrating the yeast. You can just sprinkle it on top of your wort. Cheers!
How long does it take to brew 1 gallon of brown ale?
Michael L on Jun 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The actual, on-the-stove brewing time will be a few hours. Then it is cooled, and then fermented for a few weeks in the jug, and then bottled up. Once bottled, you usually wait about two weeks or so with the beer at room temp for it to naturally carbonate in the bottles. Then chill and enjoy! -Mike W, Northern Brewer
What is the abv % of this brew?
Q U on Jan 15, 2016

It really depends on how fermentation goes, but if all goes well, it should finish right around 5% abv.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
