Honey Brown Ale All-Grain Kit

SKU: U1544

A spinoff of our highly popular Nut Brown Ale kit that combines American malts, hops and ale yeast with honey.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts. It is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

What would happen if you augmented the slightly dry, caramelly and roasty character of a smooth, mellow English brown ale with the sweet floral flavor of honey? What if you added the honey at the very last possible minute to maximize its presence in the finished beer? What if it was delicious? This recipe is a spinoff of our highly popular Nut Brown Ale kit that combines American malts, hops and ale yeast with honey. A well-balanced and intensely drinkable beer.

Wow! Review by rixcat
Ok. Maybe Wow is a little dramatic, but I have to admit that the satisfaction level of this kit was certainly high. Usually I screw up something in each batch I make, maybe something minor, maybe something medium major, but always repairable, always drinkable. This time I was in the zone from set-up to cleanup. I remembered gravity testing, had no boil-overs, and hit all my marks. Used DMT to bottle prime and success was mine. Three weeks after bottling I had a perfectly delicious beer. Thank you for designing and assembling this great recipe. (Posted on 1/7/14)
A perfect honey porter Review by JimRMaine
Tweaked this one by adding 1lb British Brown malt, and used WY1728Scottish ale yeast.
IMO, this turned out an absolutely perfect Honey Porter. (Posted on 9/24/13)
My go-to beer Review by Wayne
Fantastic. A well balanced beer that is a hit with everyone! Great maltiness with a subtle hint of honey. Beautiful color. Will order again and again. (Posted on 12/18/12)
Definitely a keeper Review by Eric
I mashed this a little higher at 156. I added the honey to the primary rather than flameout. Flameout honey may as well be sugar in my experience. I also used a 2nd generation washed WY1272 American Ale II yeast at 64F.

This is smooth. Caramel comes through as does a nice amount of chocolate and a touch of coffee. I'm not getting much honey character, subtle. This is almost a desert beer. I could up end a glass easy. Serve it with cookies and ice cream. Don't let anybody taste it or it'll be gone.

Solid Brew Review by Jared
Brewed on 3/19. Added oxygen to the wort and dumped on the fresh yeast cake of wyeast 1056 (from a cream ale). Fermentation at 66 degrees started within hours. Kegged on 4/6, served at 38 and the taste kept getting better with time.

The honey was noticeable but not distracting. I will be brewing this again. (Posted on 7/20/11)
This beer ALWAYS wins Review by Steve
This beer always wins competitions. My first batch won 11 awards. I made my second batch of this and entered it again...same results. I usually don't make kits but this is just a stand by winner you can't go wrong. (Posted on 12/6/10)
all grain is better hands down Review by buzz
I've made about 6 batches of this so far, and the all grain version has alot more coffee/chocolate tones to it. Not a noticeable honey tone but very smooth. I've used the dry yeast as well as the 1056 and like the 1056 the best, but either will still turn out good. This beer probably has had the most compliments overall than any of the other styles. Get IT! (Posted on 6/25/10)
Great overall Review by Buck
The brew and fermentation all went well. After a few weeks in the bottles the final product is very good. Slightly dark in color for an ale and the honey flavor is moderate and not overpowering. All in all I would absolutely make this beer again. (Posted on 3/20/10)
