The Innkeeper All-Grain Kit

SKU: U1814

Spicy, herbal, and English biscuits. Flashes of clean citrus and chewy minerals blend into a complex finish that is refreshingly bitter and remarkably dry.

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.

Classic style emulated very well with one hitch Review by Daniel
So this is a great bready/malty bitter with an appropriate crisp/dry finish. I gave it 4 stars because the 5 oz of priming sugar is way too much carbonation for this style.

The flavors and their subtleties get lost if you over carbonation with 5 oz of sugar (approx 2.7 vols of carbonation). If you have a keg system you can control this if you have a second/third regular and/or only one keg I suppose.

It seems a disservice to this great kit not to mention / or provide the direction for folks seeking the style that might not otherwise know the proper carb level for this beer, and thus losing some of the flavor/experience by using a full 5 oz of priming sugar. (Posted on 3/5/14)
Great every day beer Review by Brian
I am a big fan of the English style beers and this kit is one of the best I've made. While I like a IPA as much as the next guy, there is something about a well balanced English beer that goes with every occasion. (Posted on 12/10/13)
Very good pale ale. Review by Will
I've brewed this kit 3 times and had very good results each time. This past time I had to rush it for a friend's party. It went from the brew kettle to being served in 2 weeks and still turned out very well (force carbed in a keg). I recommend giving it longer than 2 weeks, but if you're in a pinch you can still have a quality beer in a short time with this kit. (Posted on 10/28/13)
easy to make, easy to drink Review by Tim
This is my house beer and pairs well with anything. Easy to drink and allows you to have a few without regretting it in the morning. (Posted on 10/15/13)
A great bitter... Review by Mark
This beer is a VERY good representation of the style. It is very balanced, refreshing, and a style that many people will enjoy. I don't understand some of the low ratings. If you like English bitters (and light pale ales) don't hesitate to brew this kit. For this style of beer it is spot on. Cheers! (Posted on 8/4/13)
Fantastic Review by Chris
A little taste of home for an Englishman! (Posted on 7/17/13)
Utterly Forgettable Review by Chris
Yup, tastes like a british style Pale Ale. And it's certainly drinkable. But it doesn't have you coming back for a refill. If you like middle of the road beers, or are trying to brew something with mass appeal, this may be a good recipe. But if you're looking to brew something truly remarkable, this aint it.

Unreal Review by Stu
This was my first all grain batch. Made more mistakes than i can count during the brewing process and This just might be the best beer I have ever had store bought and homebrew. Forgiving recipe for 1st time all grain. Can't get enough of it. (Posted on 4/28/12)
This kit will impress you Review by Chance
Brewed this as my 3rd all grain batch and was still refining my process. I hit a higher efficiency than anticipated and I ended up high on the OG at 1.052. Fermented down to 1.006.

Even though I'm high on ABV I think this beer is well balanced. Brew this as is and enjoy. You wont be disappointed. (Posted on 4/13/12)
Wow Review by Tim
Beer finished fast. 2.5 weeks then kegged. One of the best beers I have brewed. Brew and enjoy. (Posted on 1/2/12)
love it Review by Gerald
This has become one of my favorite beers to date. I brewed it with the Yorkshire limited edition yeast. I also tried to carb the beer more to style and used 2 oz of corn sugar vs the 5 oz (2/3 cup) they suggest in the directions. It was still pretty flat after 2-3 weeks, but after a couple months of conditioning its perfect. It has a wonderful balance of malt and fruitiness. Clears up very nicely too (Posted on 6/20/11)
New "house brew" by popular demand Review by House Brew
I love a good English Bitter/ESB but it's tough to find on draft here in the mid-southern US. Homebrew to the rescue!
My neighbors and friends have requested that this brew earn a permanent place in the keggerator, and I'm happy to oblige. Warm biscuity nose, balanced malt and hops, and a slightly dry finish with just a hint of raisin or toffee.
I opted for the Wyeast 1318 London Ale III yeast as it supposedly comes from the English brewery that produces one of my favorite bitters. The yeast performed extremely well and I'll certainly be using it again.
Added a pound of carapils for more body/mouthfeel.
Swapped the corn sugar for 1 pound of brown sugar for those toffee/caramel notes. (Posted on 5/29/11)
Lovely Review by Rockfish
The description is spot on, I had a bit higher efficiency but it still finishes nice and dry. I followed a temp scale from a clone recipe from a brewery that uses the same yeast. Ferment at 66 and ramp up to 69 over 72 hours, the only caveat I have is that the commercial beer this is based off of has a bit more hop aroma based off of a foggy recollection from a nearly decade past pub crawl. If you're in London hit up the Dog & Duck in Soho for a pint. (Posted on 4/19/11)
'okay' Review by jb
This is a style I love and I felt the beer is acceptable, but slightly 'pedestrian'. It is simply an okay version of this style. I feel the sugar is slightly out of place in the recipe. (Posted on 4/7/11)
K.I.S.S. Review by Big Perm
It is amazing how great this beer is. The Wyeast 1469 is one of my favorite yeasts, and I bought a stockpile of it so I can make this ale again and again. We homebrewers are sometimes guilty of adding way too many specialty malts, so I urge you to use restraint and appreciate how much complexity you can get from such a simple recipe. (Posted on 3/17/11)
Surprisingly nice Review by Matt
I'm not much for the English ales but this was very nice. The wife even enjoyed it and she's tough to please. Mild but interesting. A definite repeat if it's made part of the regular offerings. (Posted on 3/17/11)
A perfect English pint Review by JXLT
I just transferred this to the keg from primary and the sample I pulled is delicious. I can't wait to get this one carbonated. I'll be brewing this a lot more. I think I've found my house beer. (Posted on 2/28/11)'s all it says it is! Review by RECREATION BREWERY
Fantastic drinker. I will have made 200 gallons this year, and this is one of the top brews I made. I will brew it again soon, as alas......there will be none left, and I will have to! (Posted on 2/15/11)
