Thirty six major awards. Four-time Brewers International Champion. Four-time CAMRA Beer of the Year. Simply put, the muse for this recipe kit has won more awards than any other English beer, period. From very simple ingredients comes a wonderfully well-balanced dram of classic strong pale ale. Spicy, herbal, and English biscuits. Flashes of clean citrus and chewy minerals blend into a complex finish that is refreshingly bitter and remarkably dry. The way a pint was meant to taste. Truly spot on!
This kit is available with the original Wyeast 1469 Yorkshire Ale Yeast Strain.
We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts, but it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Browse 4 questions and 34 answersShow all answers | Sort byThe directions say to only boil with 2.5 gallons and add water to 5 gallons afterwards. Would it be bad to do a full 5 gallon boil from the start?Best Answer: Boiling the full 5 gallon amount will not be a problem. The instructions say to boil 2.5 gallons because people who use extract kits often do not use a full-wort boil. Be aware, though, that if you start your boil with exactly 5 gallons you will lose part of that volume due to evaporation, so you will still need to top off your fermentor with fresh water to reach the 5 gallon mark.
When utilizing a full-wort boil, you will want to pay extra attention to the oxygenation of the wort before pitching your yeast as well, since you will be forcing out most of the oxygen from the wort during the boil. That is not quite a large of a concern when you use a 2.5 gallon boil and add water at the end, because the fresh water usually contains plenty of oxygen, but if you are going to boil the full amount, you'll need to add oxygen to give a healthy start to your yeast.
