- Product Details
- Not your typical amber ale—patterned after Belgian-style pale ales, which might be described as slightly less bitter, more fruity versions of English pale ales. Our Phat Tyre kit is copper-red with a fruity, slightly spicy aroma and flavor that comes from a combination of yeast and hops. A blend of Munich, caramel and Victory malts creates a sweet, toasty, bready character that lingers from the aroma through the finish.

- Browse 5 questions Browse 5 questions and 11 answersI know there are yeast options... I'm thinking liquid yeast would be the best. anyone else agree?..thanks!!BEST ANSWER: I get more live yeast by hydrating in 800 ml sterilized water with 1/2 cup DME for about 6 hours in a warm place like my micro (not turned on) which acts like an incubator due to having two lights under it which keeps it at about 80 degrees. I swoosh it around about every have hour or so. I use a beaker with foam stopper.What is the final gravity of this beer?BEST ANSWER: I followed instructions real close and my O.G. was 1.051. I ended up with a Final Gravity of 1.011. Real good brew.Is the fermentation temp based off the yeast? Whats recommended fermentation tempature?BEST ANSWER: The fermentation temperature is based off of the yeast that you are using. For the recommended yeast, between 65-75 F is ideal.How big a deal is it if I put the 6 lbs of munich malt syrup in at the beginning of the boil when brewing Phat Tyre?BEST ANSWER: Shouldn't be a problem. The final product might have a bit less body and maltiness but it will taste great.What is the proper serving temp and pressure for this beer in a keg?BEST ANSWER: I would serve at 40 degrees. I would carbonate to around 2.3 volumes of CO2 then that means serving at around 8-10 PSI depending on your lines, gravity, etc.
