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.

The best I've tasted
I would let this beer sit in a dark closet for a long time I let a case sit for 6 months in a dark cool area and it is so smooth and the flavor is outstanding

Excellent!
2nd batch, did a double batch this time as it was so good the first time around. Instead of the Wyeast Northwest yeast, I had some Denny's Fav 50 left over from an earlier batch of rye. I also added a small amount of extra Cascade hops at about 20 minutes, which came though nicely. The down side is that it is so good it won't last long . . . . oh well, another excuse to brew some more.

GREAT COPY OF Moose Drool! or a great english brown.
East to make on a 5 gal, sparge and lauter system (2- 5 gal, buckets)I modified recipe and added 2#'s of corn sugar and used Wyeast 1056 at first pitch. O.G. 1.0842 weeks in primary fermenter 2 weeks in fermenter #2Racked to fermenter #3 and added White Labs 001 California Ale yeast for another weeks.F.G. 1.020 7 %I rack 1/2 into small keg and other into 22.5 bottles. Great English brown ale! First smell is that chocolate candy bar like smell backed with caramel.Tastes is pallet cleansing and boozy but very drinkable.This is a great kit I like how NB puts them together, great directions.

The hype
Prime example of populous hype. While this is an incredibly good brew, it takes away from plenty of excellent kits. Kits with few ratings are as good or better. Nonetheless I will get this again. Hence the 5 stars.

Great Beer
Great beer. Easy to make, and tastes great. The longer it sits the better it gets. I sampled the beer after 2 weeks in the bottle, and dont get me wrong it was good but after 6 weeks in the bottle its MUCH better!!!

Well done
I bought the all grain kit and did it BIAB style. I don't have a grain mill so I was unable to further crush the bill, but as it turned out it wasn't necessary. I did a 90 minute mash, and about an 85 minute boil. Overshot the O.G. @ 1.062. After 4 weeks in the primary, F.G. at 1.020. I used the Danstar Windsor dry yeast, so apparently got decent attenuation. The uncarbonated beer taste delicious. Can't wait to have a pint fully gassed. This kit comes highly recommended.

One of the best
I brew this several times a year in both extract and all grain. They come out perfect each time. This recipe tastes great and really does get better with time. This has been a favorite brew for our annual men's weekend.

What beer would you compare this one too? I want to brew a brown ale that will have a well balance between hops and malts. One that has an abv around 5%. Is this the beer for me or does anyone have another suggestion. Thanks!
M W on Aug 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This would be a good one to try, then. It's pretty mellow on the hops, but a little maltier than something like Newcastle.
The recipe lists "Goldings" as a hop addition. Is this EKG? Styrian? American?
M I on Jun 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Goldings in this kit are the US variety.
So I have this in the primary now, and the fermentation kicked off pretty fast was bubbling first night, but by day 3 this things basically already tapped out. Gave it a few shakes to re suspend the yeast into the malts but it seems to have just stopped. Anyways is that typical for people brewing this beer? (Was with the dry yeast) pretty much planning to rack secondary at 7 days at this point.
M I on May 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not unusual with dry yeast, it can go pretty fast! We'd still recommend going with the 1-2 weeks in primary, it can be good to let it finish out fully and clear before moving to secondary. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
