  •  Phat Tyre Beer Kit Extract w/ Specialty Grains
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.

Phat Tyre brew is excellent.
Myself, my wife, two sons and friends all love the Phat Tyre taste and full bodied flavor! I just can't keep enough of it around for long. I had better purchase another kit soon!

Something went wrong.
This kit was my 2nd time brewing, and i think something went wrong. The beer, to me, has kind of an off aftertaste. It kind of tastes soapy. The obvious answer would point to poor cleaning. I tried being very cautious and thorough, cleaning with oxiclean, rinsing, then sanitizing. I used a big mouth bubbler and the top popped up during fermentation. I currently have another beer in that same fermenter but now I weigh the top down with weights. I use a blow off tube and not an airlock, wish the tops screwed on. Could the exposure to oxygen, which was sometime between 1 to 12 hrs, it happened when I wasn't home, be the culpurit? Im leaning towards poor rinsing on my part and can't give this kit a poor rating due to something that's my fault. I'm still gonna drink because it's not over powering and because by doing so maybe it'll force me to be more mindful going forward.

Very good beer
have been drinking this for about 2 weeks now and it is GREAT! Just the right balance of hops and malt. I highly recommend going with the liquid yeast. I will brew this one again.

Is the fermentation temp based off the yeast? Whats recommended fermentation tempature?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2017
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.
I know there are yeast options... I'm thinking liquid yeast would be the best. anyone else agree?..thanks!!
Lisa R on Jan 26, 2017
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?
A shopper on Dec 17, 2016
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.
What is the ibu's of this kit?
A shopper on Jan 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My best guess is about 20-25. This is not an IPA, but more of an English bitter. Has a definite biscuit flavor.
I'll be brewing this recipe in a couple days. The OG is stated as 1.052. I've been researching all the popular home brew discussion web sites and most everything I read suggests that a beer with this high an OG requires at least 200 billion yeast cells for proper fermentation. I chose the liquid Wyeast 1762 recommended option and that only has 100 billion cells. Which leads me to believe I either need to make a starter yeast or pitch 2 packages of the yeast. I've no time or desire to have to make a starter right now. What say you Northern Brewer? What do you recommend?

BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting Northern Brewer. I understand you want to brew the Phat Tyre with the OG of 1.052. He's my rule of thumb with yeast. If it's 1.060 or lower one packet of yeast is fine. If it's over get two packages or make a yeast starter. You should be fine with just one package of yeast. Cheers!
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?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Shouldn't be a problem. The final product might have a bit less body and maltiness but it will taste great.
Is there a excitation date for this kits? Want to get since on sale but don’t want to brew till fall
A shopper on Mar 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: For the freshest beer, we recommend brewing within 4-6 months. Cheers!
What is the proper serving temp and pressure for this beer in a keg?
A shopper on Jul 3, 2017
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.
