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.

Easy Drinking
Dark brown color with good head and good carbonation. Mild malt/chocolate taste with good mouth feel and very little hop taste. Finish 1.020. Wife says she can taste an aftertaste that I believe is the hops. Definitely an easy drinking session type beer. Will I brew again? Not sure. Would not use the Danstar yeast. Want to brew something with more complexity and flavor next.

Very easy brew to make
This is a very good beer nice body holds a good head. Definitely will put some of this back to let sit for a while. Really seems to smooth out the longer it sits. All my family earn not very much and dark beer everybody love this beer. Will definitely bring this beer again I wouldn’t mind trick in the recipe a little bit thought about having some brown sugar maybe some vanilla bean in the second fermentation will let you know how turns out

I have brewed this beer twice now. I wasn't very impressed either time. I am not saying this isn't a good out for someone else. I realized after brewing it the second time that American Brown Ales may not be for me. I will say that this was an easy beer to brew and would recommend it to anyone first time trying all grain brewing.

Kits need a final gravity range.
The kit is fairly straight forward. I met the initial gravity settings,
but no range for final gravity was given. It is an advanced kit but a range of + - say .012 to .015 should be included in the instructions.

I'ts not what is in the name that counts!
The name takes away from this English Style brown ale, however, brown ale is not my first choice in ale's it is my wife's and that has a lot of punch in this selection. I have to agree with my wife, however, it's a terrific brown ale and the flavor and hop balance is perfect for a brown ale. She will see more of this brew in the near future..

One of my go to brews!!!!
Since my first ever brew I have kept this one in stock!!! One of the few beers that I make that the wife actually likes...she is a wine drinker for the most part! Very balanced brew that is very forgiving to your brewing experience.

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

Everyones Favorite
Clearly, the most favored of all the recipes I have brewed. Everyone liked this. I have several requests to make another batch and I am aiming to do just that. Well balanced flavors that are bold enough to make everyone happy. Strongly recommended.

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.

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."
I plan to keg and I was wondering what a recommended serving temp and co2 pressure might be. Any recommendations?
A shopper on Dec 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Most American beers are best served cold and that, to me, means somewhere between 35 and 40 degrees. When I'm ready to tap a keg, I release all the pressure in the keg before connecting it to the tap and gas supply. I raise the serving pressure to 4-5 psi.
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
