- Product Details
Arguably Ireland's most famous export, dry stout has a loyal following all over the world. Our stout kit has a pronounced roasty, coffee-like flavor and aroma, imparted by a generous helping of roasted barley. Hop bitterness enhances the dryness, and the medium body makes for a very drinkable dark beer. This is one of the most popular styles among home brewers; after a few pints, you'll understand why.

As far as temperature I brew in Wisconsin and ferment in my basement where it is almost always in the 60-mid 70s, great for ale. I have only done extract kits and don't get into minute details for "perfect" beer as I don't have a lot of time with job, kids, etc. all of my beers have turned out very good with no excess worry over temperature. I just don't let it get way too cold when it is -20 in winter and may drop to the fifties in basement. So as long as you are brewing simple extract kits and not getting too professional and following the instructions, the beer will turn out good. When I made this kit I actually put it in secondary for a month or so on top of 3/4 pound of slightly smashed coffee beans in a muslin bag. Turned out a great coffee stout. I would do less coffee next time cause it was a bit strong. Maybe 1/2 pound or less. Bottom line, if you are brewing for fun and yummy beer, don['t over think it. Follow instructions. These ale kits are pretty forgiving. Enjoy.What is difference between extract kits and grain kits?Best Answer: All grain batches require advanced equipment to perform a 'mash'. Extract kits come with malt syrups that you just need to boil up on the stove. All grain kits have nothing but grain so additional steps need to be taken before the boil.
