- Product Details
- Not your typical amber ale—patterned after Belgian-style pale ales, which might be described as slightly less bitter, more fruity versions of English pale ales. Our Phat Tyre kit is copper-red with a fruity, slightly spicy aroma and flavor that comes from a combination of yeast and hops. A blend of Munich, caramel and Victory malts creates a sweet, toasty, bready character that lingers from the aroma through the finish.

- 4.4 / 5.060 ReviewsLiquid yeast is way importantI made this last spring, and of the ten gallons of beer I made this year, this went the fastest. I don't think expecting it to be a closer match to Fat Tire is realistic if a person uses the dry yeast. In my experience, using the appropriate liquid yeast is vital; otherwise, why bother with the particular ingredients that are put together in a kit? Spend a few extra bucks next time, you'll be glad you did.November 30, 2009Awesome beer!This beer tastes great! This is the best tasting beer I've ever brewed, and I have brewed a LOT.August 27, 2015Bottled it today. But triedBottled it today. But tried some before I did it and it taste great. Can't wait to try it carbonated and chilled. I like all the kits I've gotten so far. ThanksOctober 2, 2015Great BeerAs always it makes a great beer!August 19, 2016It's great!,,The Phat Tyre is great! It has a perfect balance!October 5, 2015Good enough to brew again !I have brewed the Phat Tyre kit prior to ordering the kit again. It was good enough the first time to brew again. This batch is in the secondary carboy almost ready for bottling. As a new brewer ( a dozen batches under my belt so to speak ), I have not built a bad beer yet. Northern Brewer is the best supplier to date and I will keep ordering as long as I keep brewing.October 5, 2015April 16, 2016still in secondary-but anxiousGonna bottle it this weekend. However, it tasted pretty darn good flat... A good flat phat tyre..too funny! I'm excited for finshed results!!#March 1, 2016First True Success!After brewing multiple kits from several different sites this one turned out to be my best so far! Gave a few away and everyone agreed that it was a great beer. Not very close to a true Fat Tire though.August 31, 2010One of my favoritesAlthough this doesn't taste as much like a fat tire as I had initially hoped for, this beer is fantastic. This has got to be my favorite brew from NB and I've brewed about 7 or 8 kits from the site. My only problem with this one is that all my bottles were empty in no time. I will definitely be brewing this one again in the future.August 13, 2010
- Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 5 answersI know there are yeast options... I'm thinking liquid yeast would be the best. anyone else agree?..thanks!!BEST ANSWER: I get more live yeast by hydrating in 800 ml sterilized water with 1/2 cup DME for about 6 hours in a warm place like my micro (not turned on) which acts like an incubator due to having two lights under it which keeps it at about 80 degrees. I swoosh it around about every have hour or so. I use a beaker with foam stopper.What is the final gravity of this beer?BEST ANSWER: I followed instructions real close and my O.G. was 1.051. I ended up with a Final Gravity of 1.011. Real good brew.
