- Product Details
Tallgrass originally brewed Halcyon as their first summer seasonal, but since all the Halcyon fans (a.k.a: kiteheads) asked so nicely, they now brew this magical brew year round. Halcyon starts with raw Kansas wheat in the grain bill to give it a nice edge, but what really makes it shine is the hops - Tallgrass uses “hop-bursting” late in the brewing process to give Halcyon its palate of tropical fruit flavors & aromas with a bright and refreshing taste like the best days of summer.
Since 2007, Tallgrass Brewing Co. has been crafting award-winning ales at the edge of the Flint Hills in Manhattan, Kansas. In addition to the quality of their beer, they’re known for their packaging, sense of humor, and an adventurous, experimental spirit that’s true to their homebrewing roots. Tallgrass chose Northern Brewer to help bring their recipes to homebrewers everywhere through our Pro Series line of beer kits - cheers!
A note on yeast: Tallgrass uses White Labs WLP007 Dry English Ale; with Tallgrass' blessing, we suggest Wyeast 1098 as the default option so customers (especially mail order customers) can more easily evaluate viability before brewing.
This is a partial mash beer kit - see our Partial Mash Walkthrough for details.

- 5.0 / 5.020 ReviewsYum!I added a pound of clover honey to the boil. After two weeks in the primary, I transferred to a secondary (only because I needed the primary for another brew). I had planned to bottle it the next week, but there was still (very slow) visible fermentation, so I gave it two weeks in the secondary. It dropped another point after the two weeks and it tasted absolutely delicious when I bottled it. Really looking forward to it being ready to drink.May 3, 2016Most excellentMost excellent, Tall Grass should have never quit making this delariping brewAugust 15, 2016TallgrassAwesome beer, highly recommend.May 31, 2016Comparison with the real thingI just returned from Manhattan Kansas where I visited the Tallgrass Tap House. I have brewed seven batches of Tallgrass Halcyon and it is one of my favorite brews. I ordered the real thing at the Tallgrass Tap House and I was amazed at how close the Northern Brewer's partial mash kit matched the actual product. The color and taste were a match. If you ever get near Manhattan Kansas visit the Tallgrass Tap House the bartenders, staff and customers are very friendly and you can taste the full range of Tallgrass brews.July 3, 2015ExcellantAdded 10 oz. of light Belgian candi sugar;9 days in primary, 12 days in secondary, kegged fast carbonated, excellent, full bodied, 5.5 % alcohol, notes of apple; dynamite brew willl definitely brew again; drinking this like a sieve...yummyNovember 11, 2012Right onAfter trying the Halcyon brewed by Tallgrass I had to try this kit. The flavor and aroma were both right on- make sure to use the hop stand suggested on the recipe sheet.July 17, 2012Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yes!Delicious! I will brew this beer again. Balanced between wheat smooth and a nice hop kick.TGH smelled so delicious it was difficult to wait for it to condition....patience Tall Grasshopper!July 12, 2013Great Go to BeerI picked this beer on a whim, and I'm glad I did. Its been added to the top of my rotation.April 16, 2013Very Nice beer!!!Wonderful yellow color, crisp taste, very little bitter after taste, fantastic beer!!March 28, 2016Great beer- should have in your regular rotationLove this beer! Tastes almost identical to the real deal. I will have to order another kit soon. Only knock on is on a 3 gallon boil the color of the brew is amber and not golden yellow like the real deal. Doesn't really matter because Citra hop aroma and taste make this a real winner. Get it today and and make sure you order 2 kits because you'll be disappointed if you don't. Thanks Northern Brewer! PS Northern Brewer, I love all of your clones, being an Iowan, please get a hold of Toppling Goliath Brewery in Decorah, IA and get a clone of Pseudo Sue ASAP! (Another great Citra brew) They are not too far from you. Thanks again for making your great products!August 12, 2013
