Product Details
It's brown, it's named after a large North American ungulate, and its name suggests oral incontinence. Ah, we market product with our minds, but we drink beer with our mouths! Which is why this American brown ale is your new favorite session beer. Dense layers of malt, caramel, baking chocolate, and a hint of light-roast coffee give way to reveal a hop character you'll be surprised to find if you're used to drinking English brown ale. The finish is complex but balanced, and the gravity is not so high as to keep you from having another.

My First Home Brew - Caribou Slobber Very Good
Caribou Slobber was my first attempt at home brewing and much to my surprise it was a success. It has a nice smooth medium body, just a touch of (very little) hoppyness which is just how I like my beers. To be honest I can't believe I made my own beer and it tastes great. I will buy this recipe again as well as others. I need to sample other 1 gallon recipes before I increase production.

First Homebrew a Success!
Received the 1 gallon kit as a Christmas present from my in-laws and couldn't wait to try it. Easy process to follow and there was only one mishap: I forgot to add priming sugar to one of the bottles, so the first bottle cracked open was flat beer. But the other six? Delicious flavor and taste. Will brew this one again and can't wait to get my next kit!

Just tried my first bottle from my first batch. Good beer, and loved making it. I didn’t get much of a head from the pour, and it had a very very slight sourness to the taste, although still a very good brew. Any suggestions about my problems?

The wart tasted good
This is the batch I was brewing when I had a total melt down(see other post). I am afraid to purchase another kit because I believe I am Jinxed.

What started it all...
When a favorite beer of mine was discontinued, I started looking into brewing my own. It had nothing to do with the english brown ale style, but this is the recipe I choose to start with. I. WAS. HOOKED. I've only been brewing for 7 months now, and it has quickly become an obsession. I've since expanded production and even dabble with all-grain batches. Do yourself a favor and try Caribou Slobber. Whether it be a one gallon kit, or five; you won't be disappointed! This is now one of my favorites, and even the brew master at a local micro-brewery told me it was one of his as well!

Very good
We enjoy the taste very smooth and Rich I might experiment with the hops in future batches. Don't you have any recipes for a Scottish ale

Good beer
This was my first time making this brew. I fermented for two weeks, & warm conditioned for three weeks, then threw them into the fridge. Roasted chocolate aroma was present, mild bitterness, & had a earthy taste. It was good, it didn't taste bad. It just wasn't as hoppy as I was hoping for. If you don't like hoppy beers I highly recommend this beer.

only one problem
I bought 2 kits at one time to make 2 gallons, everything went perfect. The ale came out really well and everyone that tried it liked it. The only problem that I had was that the fizz drops that came with the kit were too big to fit inside the neck of my 16 ounce Grolsch bottles. They did fit inside a 12 ounce bottle and luckily I had enough to bottle with.

What are the specialty grains in this kit?
Brian S on Oct 4, 2015

.4 ounces Black Malt

1 ounce Caramel 80 L

1 ounce Pale Chocolate
When I moved the wort from the pot to the carboy, the level was a couple inches below the "one gallon" lettering on the side. I know I started with the right amount of water, but should I have added more at some point?
L A on Feb 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The instructions say to add water up to the 1 gallon mark
Im new to home brewing and this is the first kit I've made. After about two days, I noticed that the yeast is not working hardly at all on the the second day of fermentation. Is this something I need to worry about or just wait until bottling day on the 27th of Feb?? Thanks in advance.
Eddie M on Feb 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they will activate if the temperature gets up to the appropriate range. You can also wrap the fermentation vessel in a towel/blanket to help retain heat if the location tends to be cold. However, if the temperature gets too high (75 degrees or higher), this can create too-rapid fermentation conditions, which lead to off-flavors in the beer.
Does the 1 gallon kit come with yeast?
K E on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it came with everything that was needed for the recipe
If I wanted to make 2 gallons of this do I just get 2 kits and brew them together?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That would work. It may be about the same price as a normal five gallon kit. I liked this. So did everyone who sampled it. I was lucky to get a gallon or so from a five gallon kit.
Is this beer able to be shelved for an extended period of time? (2-3 months)
Michael H on Jul 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have found no issues storing any of the recipes I've made. I do small batch so drive the 6 pack right away and save up the remaining 4 bottles for months until I have a variety pack of kinds to share.
Do I need to rehydrate the yeast like the yeast package says, even though the instructions do not mention it?
A shopper on May 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, we do not recommend rehyrating the yeast. You can just sprinkle it on top of your wort. Cheers!
How long does it take to brew 1 gallon of brown ale?
Michael L on Jun 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The actual, on-the-stove brewing time will be a few hours. Then it is cooled, and then fermented for a few weeks in the jug, and then bottled up. Once bottled, you usually wait about two weeks or so with the beer at room temp for it to naturally carbonate in the bottles. Then chill and enjoy! -Mike W, Northern Brewer
What is the abv % of this brew?
Q U on Jan 15, 2016

It really depends on how fermentation goes, but if all goes well, it should finish right around 5% abv.

Let me know if you have any other questions!


What's the approximate IBU of this beer?
Peter K on Oct 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure what the level is but in my taste buds say very low bitterness.
What are the specialty grains in this kit?
Brian S on Oct 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The grain blend is as follows:

English Black Malt - .025 lbs

Briess Caramel 80L - .0625 lbs

Fawcett Pale Chocolate - .0625 lbs

Cheers! -Tyler
How many grams of yeast come in the small batch packet?
A shopper on Nov 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The yeast that comes with those will be a 5 gram pack, more than enough for a 1-gallon recipe kit.
