- Stan Hieronymus (author of Brew Like a Monk) and Kristen England (BJCP Continuing Education Director) bring you this very special kit. "Brouwerij'ed" 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's 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.

- 4.5 / 5.098 ReviewsSurprise for light beer lovers!This Patersbier is an average beer. I am giving it 4 stars because it was easy to make, tastes just as it's flavor profile describes, and it's a good beer to keep on hand for friends and family members who only drink light beers.
True to the description, this beer has an interesting candied pear flavor (almost like a cider), but then takes a unique turn with a balanced spice.
My dad and brother do not like IPA's. Searching for something interesting for them to try, I made this Patersbier kit. Upon the first sip, my dad with a surprised look on his face said, "Wow!... What is that I'm tasting?".
Make this for a party or gathering and watch the light beer drinkers enjoy it!August 6, 2017Purchased

- Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 9 answersThis is a general extract kit question, but I'll be brewing this next so I'll ask here. If I wanted to do a full 5 gallon boil could it alter hop utilization enough to result in overly bitter brew? Is it better to just work with the 2.5 gallons called for in the recipe and add cold water at the end? Just figure I have less chance of scorching and such with a more diluted wort at 5 gallons.BEST ANSWER: Hey William, short answer, yes it will slightly alter the hop utilization but I do not think it will be enough to dramatically change the bitterness of the beer. I would go ahead and boil all 5 gallons, just know it will be more difficult to cool, depending on your setup. Using 5 gallons during the boil, instead of 2.5 gallons creates a more dilute solution which will extract more bitterness. I recommend you use online calculators like brewersfriend recipe builder to confirm the IBU of the recipe when going from 2.5 gallons to 5.I received a 1oz packet of German tradition hops. So I weighed out the 0.5oz from it and stuck to the recipe. I was just wondering if the recipe was written wrong or if I got extra hops?BEST ANSWER: You did the right thing following the recipe. The hops packages all come in 1 oz sizes unless you get a bulk package. Keep the extra hops in your refrigerator just in case you want to use them on a later batch.
