Product Details
When Beer Nerd and NB house wonk Michael Dawson wants a pint of something that's not sour and three years old, there's this on tap: a smooth, vaguely Irish-style, polyglot session beer that incorporates domestic and German malts, American hops, and British yeast. A combination of barley, wheat, and rye in the grist imparts deep caramel notes with edges of roast malt layered over complex grain flavors. Top it off with light stone-fruit notes from the yeast and a bitterness level that knows when to remain out of sight and when to be seen. Carbonate lightly, drink fresh, and serve in tankards over a game of darts or bocce, as the season dictates.

I really enjoy this easy and flavorful base kit
This is an incredibly versatile base kit for the price, that with a few additions can be taken into a great amber, red ipa, or even a brown. Just the base on its own is super easy and flavorful. Personally I add 4 oz of flaked rye and 2-4 oz of some sort of crystal to punch it up but that's a personal choice. Anyone who doesn't like this kit at this price is plain ol'crazy.

It's ok
This kit is easy and solid....but, the finished product was not as good as I had hoped. After 1 week of bottle conditioning the beer didn't have a good lasting flavor. I hope with time the flavors will develop more.

Response from Northern Brewer
I'd expect the flavors to mature and improve if given a bit of conditioning time in the bottle. Try them in a few weeks, and be sure to save some for 3-4 months, to see how they change and improve with some aging time. -Mike W, Northern Brewer

This is a really good kit
The beer is very good and easy to make. A good kit for the beginner or someone who wants a good beer.

Two good batches and counting.
This is the second time I've made this recipe and both times have been impressed. This is one of the few homebrewed beers made with wheat that I have enjoyed. My uncle tells me this reminds him of a beer he had when he was younger, so I'll have to keep a few around for when he visits.

Has anyone ever added sweetened orange peel to this as well some mulling spices? if so how much is needed?
N I on Nov 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sounds like an interesting idea! Never done it before but I do know the approximate amounts that would work. You do not want to over do it. Try at most 1 ounce of orange peel. I would go with 1/4 - 1/2 ounce myself. That is if you buy it dried - if preparing fresh try a tablespoon or two. For mulling spices there is no reason to add more than a teaspoon. I would go with 1/2 tsp myself. You want slight accents to the flavors. if you add too much they would become defining characteristics and if it does not work the beer would be real bad instead of just being not amazing. Then you can experiment with different amounts on future batches until it is perfect! Hope this helps!
