Patersbier Extract Beer Recipe Kit
Made only from pilsner malt, hops, and yeast, the complexity that results from these simple ingredients is staggering: perfumey floral hops, ripe pear fruit, sour apple, spicy cloves, candied citrus and a slight biscuit character on the drying finish ... a monk session beer.
Stan Hieronymus (author of Brew Like a Monk) and Kristen England (BJCP Continuing Education Director) bring you this very special kit. "Brouwerijd" on the left side of the Belgian town Malle solely for consumption by the reverent Cistercian brothers. This ale is not served or sold to the public, making it one of the rarest beers in the world. Made only from pilsner malt, hops, and yeast, the complexity that results from these simple ingredients is staggering: perfumey floral hops, ripe pear fruit, sour apple, spicy cloves, candied citrus and a slight biscuit character on the drying finish ... a monk session beer.
Note: If you wish to achieve a level of carbonation similar to the commercial examples of this beer, add an additional 1 to 2 oz plain table sugar to the priming solution.

Probably the best beer I’ve made in my sporadic brewing career. Added some wet hops from my back yard in the secondary fermentation and it turned out really well.
Decent lager, but too hoppy for my taste.
This was my third batch of home brewed beer. Like all the kits from Northern Brewer, the Patersbier kit arrived complete with easy to follow instructions. Brewing went well, Fermenting proceeded quickly (Used the Wyeast 3787 Trappist High Gravity liquid yeast). Good taste following second fermentation. After three weeks in the bottle the result was a beer, slightly darker than expected, with a hint of hop and a light clean finish. Turned out great. Will brew again.
I’m a long time brewer and especially love Belgians, but this recipe isn’t my favorite. Very bland. Would recommend the Kolsch over this 10 out of 10 times.
This was an easy kit to brew. I didn't use one of the recommended yeasts because I had another one I needed to use, so the beer is probably not really true to character. Still, it is very dinkable with nice color and a good head. It came it a little stronger than I expected at 6.4%, but that's not a negative for me. I haven't decided whether I'll brew this one again, but I'm happy I did this time.
