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.

GREAT COPY OF Moose Drool! or a great english brown.
East to make on a 5 gal, sparge and lauter system (2- 5 gal, buckets)I modified recipe and added 2#'s of corn sugar and used Wyeast 1056 at first pitch. O.G. 1.0842 weeks in primary fermenter 2 weeks in fermenter #2Racked to fermenter #3 and added White Labs 001 California Ale yeast for another weeks.F.G. 1.020 7 %I rack 1/2 into small keg and other into 22.5 bottles. Great English brown ale! First smell is that chocolate candy bar like smell backed with caramel.Tastes is pallet cleansing and boozy but very drinkable.This is a great kit I like how NB puts them together, great directions.

Great brown ale, liked it better than the original.
Brewed this one up twice before I had my first bottle of Moose Drool. I was so excited to see it out here on the west coast and was disappointed by the original. I feel this kit has a richer flavor and better body than what you buy in the store. A great brown ale.

The best I've tasted
I would let this beer sit in a dark closet for a long time I let a case sit for 6 months in a dark cool area and it is so smooth and the flavor is outstanding

Excellent!
2nd batch, did a double batch this time as it was so good the first time around. Instead of the Wyeast Northwest yeast, I had some Denny's Fav 50 left over from an earlier batch of rye. I also added a small amount of extra Cascade hops at about 20 minutes, which came though nicely. The down side is that it is so good it won't last long . . . . oh well, another excuse to brew some more.

The hype
Prime example of populous hype. While this is an incredibly good brew, it takes away from plenty of excellent kits. Kits with few ratings are as good or better. Nonetheless I will get this again. Hence the 5 stars.

Excellent
Good grain and chocolate in the malt, hop flavor, hop aroma , superb yeast profile from the 1332 wyeast NW.This one didnt last long , I just couldnt stop drinking it...Will brew again and again.(all-grain ,single stage , 1L starter)

Everyone's Favorite
A very balanced Brown Ale that is easy to drink. This is a true "session" beer. Flavors of chocolate, a hint of coffee and not overly hoppy really make this everyone's favorite. Pour it in a glass and let it warm a little and it will bring out more flavors. Must try this

Great Beer
Great beer. Easy to make, and tastes great. The longer it sits the better it gets. I sampled the beer after 2 weeks in the bottle, and dont get me wrong it was good but after 6 weeks in the bottle its MUCH better!!!

Well done
I bought the all grain kit and did it BIAB style. I don't have a grain mill so I was unable to further crush the bill, but as it turned out it wasn't necessary. I did a 90 minute mash, and about an 85 minute boil. Overshot the O.G. @ 1.062. After 4 weeks in the primary, F.G. at 1.020. I used the Danstar Windsor dry yeast, so apparently got decent attenuation. The uncarbonated beer taste delicious. Can't wait to have a pint fully gassed. This kit comes highly recommended.

What is the ABV of this beer?
Lawson L on Mar 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The OG is listed the addition info tab.....
What beer would you compare this one too? I want to brew a brown ale that will have a well balance between hops and malts. One that has an abv around 5%. Is this the beer for me or does anyone have another suggestion. Thanks!
Matthew W on Aug 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have some fermenting right now. It's close to moose drool. I brew this for my buddy and everybody that has tried it really likes it. I made 10 gallons last year for a crawfish boil and emptied both 5 gallon kegs. I only get compliments from people that drink it.
What is the additional equipment needed?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's an "all-grain" kit. It requires facilities for doing a mash and sparge to generate sweet wort to go into the boil. This is as opposed to "extract kits," that do not require going through the mashing process to generate sweet wort -- you just add the extract and hops to the boiler. This particular all-grain kit requires nothing more than most other all-grain kits. If you look at the list of all-grain kits at NB, you'll find all of them are "ADVANCED -- Additional Equipment Needed."
The recipe lists "Goldings" as a hop addition. Is this EKG? Styrian? American?
M I on Jun 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Goldings in this kit are the US variety.
So I have this in the primary now, and the fermentation kicked off pretty fast was bubbling first night, but by day 3 this things basically already tapped out. Gave it a few shakes to re suspend the yeast into the malts but it seems to have just stopped. Anyways is that typical for people brewing this beer? (Was with the dry yeast) pretty much planning to rack secondary at 7 days at this point.
M I on May 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not unusual with dry yeast, it can go pretty fast! We'd still recommend going with the 1-2 weeks in primary, it can be good to let it finish out fully and clear before moving to secondary. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
