Extract Kits

Our selection of extract homebrew kits is highly popular, award-winning, and suitable for beginning to intermediate brewers. Extract beer kits use malt extract (in dry or syrup form) as the base for the finished beer. Each kit includes malt extract, hops, and your choice of liquid or dry yeast, plus instructions. Multiple priming sugar options are available as well. Most recipe kits also include specialty grains, and some include brewing sugars, fruit, or spices for additional color and flavor. All specialty grains in extract kits are crushed by default, unless requested otherwise. Full kit inventories and instructions are available on the product description pages. Each beer kit yields five gallons. You will need a homebrewing starter kit including bottle caps, a kettle of at least 3 gallon capacity, and approximately two cases of pry-off beer bottles.
  1. Dead Ringer IPA Extract Kit with Specialty Grains

    Dead Ringer™ IPA Extract Kit w/ Specialty Grains

    From: $46.99

    Dead Ringer™ is an homage to a benchmark of the American IPA style that’s brewed in Michigan. American base malt and crystal malt create the big body and supporting grainy sweetness, while charge after charge of 100% Centennial hops deliver pronounced bitterness with a dominant citrus aroma and flavor. In the glass you get a pale amber color, hop intensity and malt density - substance with the soul of a session beer. Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

    Bourbon barrel-aged beers have been a hugely popular style ever since their inception in the early '90s by American craft brewers. By starting with a stronger-than-average robust porter, then infusing it with Bourbon-soaked oak (we recommend Maker's Mark), the end result is quite possibly the best beer ever. Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.
