    Caribou Slobber Brown Ale - Like your brews tall, dark and drinkable? Then try Caribou Slobber Brown Ale. Perfect for fans of sub- stantial craft beer, this ale is full-bodied and smooth, deliciously dark without a hint of bitterness. Guaranteed to become your new favorite session beer.

    Irish Red Ale - If you’re looking for a perfectly-balanced, crowdpleasing pint, you can’t go wrong with our Irish Red Ale. There’s a reason this kit is our best-seller. Actually, three reasons: great, medium-bodied taste, rich coppery color and enticingly low aging requirements.

    The Plinian Legacy- A true west-coast style Double IPA, this recipe boasts a hefty, straightforward malt bill to support a relentless barrage of hops. Waves of floral, citrus and pine crash into candied citrus and resinous, earthy flavors. A resoundingly fresh IPA flavor profile highlights each unique characteristic, featuring notes of juicy orange peel, puckering lemon and the refreshing, tropical burst of pineapple to match a bittering finish.

    Off the Topper - A hurricane of hops explodes with flavors of fruity pineapple and dank piney-peach. Surprisingly drinkable for the excessive lupulin, this is an exciting starter recipe not for the faint of heart. Hazy and aromatic, bitter grapefruit and tropical nectarine crash into notes of orange and zesty citrus for a profile bursting with resinous hop character.

    American Wheat - Like their German cousins, American wheat beers feature large proportions of malted wheat in the grain bill and are naturally a bit cloudy in appearance. Unlike German Hefe Weizen, though, American wheat beers have a bit more hop character and are fermented with a milder-tasting yeast, resulting in a more clean, neutral finish. With a spicy noble hop aroma and tart finish, it's a spritzy, refreshing crowd-pleaser.

    Can the small batch kit be upgraded to a regular size batch?
    A shopper on Jun 3, 2015
    Best Answer: You would need new fermentors of the right size and a new auto siphon, as the mini one in this kit would not work on 5 gallon batches.

    Can everything here be used to make another small batch? Or would I have to re-purchase some parts?
    Molly S on Jun 11, 2015
    Best Answer: For subsequent batches you will need additional caps. You may also need more cleaner, depending on how much you used for your first batch.
