Bomber Barleywine 1 Gallon Recipe Kit

Product Review (submitted on March 16, 2014):
Brewed this one in early fall expecting an early winter warm-up brew for after Thanksgiving. The brew went well and fermentation started off quickly, but hung around for more than three weeks (~68 degrees fermentation temp). Finally after four weeks, krausen started to drop. After another week, bottled and expected to taste bubbly beer after a week. Opened a re-capped three weeks in a row. After four weeks in bottles, it finally showed signs of carbonating. I was able to begin enjoying this brew after Christmas, but it was worth the wait. It's just the nature of big, full, high ABV, high gravity brews. There is a similar 5-gallon kit that NB offers, and I am considering taking this on in late summer, now tat I have increased my fermentation capacity a bit. Try this one out, you won't be disappointed.
Brew on!
