Caribou Slobber Extract Beer Recipe Kit
It's brown, it's named after a large North American ungulate, and its name suggests oral incontinence. Ah, we market products with our minds, but we drink beer with our mouths! Which is why this American brown ale is sure to be your new favorite session beer.
Hard to believe so many enticing flavors can come from one beer recipe kit. But brew up a batch of Caribou Slobber and you'll find dense, drool-worthy layers of malt, caramel, baking chocolate, and a hint of light-roast coffee give way to reveal a hop character that will surprise you 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.

Another excellent beer.
It’s smooth it’s brown it’s ale.
Brew came out great!!
The beer is smooth and creamy!
Brewed per instructions. Aggressive fermentation in first 24 hours. Definitely use a blow-off tube. 3 weeks in fermenter (no secondary). Opened first bottle after 2 weeks. Good head, lovely deep brown color and smooth malt flavor. I don't measure the ABV but didn't taste too strong.
I started fermentation a week ago with my own yeast. I plan on leaving it developing flavor until March. I'll check back in then, but will say I'm very excited to try the end result based on the taste of the wort pre-ferm. The recipe was easy to follow and I really appreciate their consolidation of the grain - made the process quicker and easier to follow.
