The classic American beer, a marriage of highly enzymatic American 6-row malt with enzyme-poor corn that cuts the high malt proteins. This is not the insipid macro-brew of today.

Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

Product Details
This is the beer your great-great grandfather enjoyed in the years before the government turned the brewing business over to the gangsters. It is the classic American beer, a marriage of highly enzymatic American 6-row malt with enzyme-poor corn that cuts the high malt proteins. This is not the insipid macro-brew of today. Rich, with a sweetness cut by a generous addition of hops, Pre-Prohibition Lager stands proudly as a beer for the discriminating brewer and drinker.

Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

Another Score for NB
Are you kidding me? Home brew this good? YES! This is among the best lager I've tasted and made. I used WLP810 and a starter at that, single deduction multistage mash, extended the lager time a little more, AMAZING!!! It'll be a long time before I'll buy a Stella Artois, or imports, they don't come close, I am NOT lying. I've been home brewing for many years, competed, etc. This is just amazing.

First All Grain
After extract brewing for 3 years I jumped into all grain with this kit. Man, it was what US beer should be. Every one I have shared it with now think I am the lord of beer. If I can make this beer, I will survive the zombie apocalypse.

Great old style beer beer.
When I received the kit I plugged it into Beer Smith and the hops were of the chart. I put them down to about 38 IIBU's and it came out fantastic This is a good brew, with nice flavor. Ordering another kit right now!

very good beer!
This beer has a great flavor that you don't find in other beers. The flavor of the 6 row stands out nicely. You will enjoy this for sure.

Flavored Beverage of Mass Consumption
Used Wyeast 2532, fermented at 52F. FWH 0.5 oz Cluster to smooth out the bittering. Sat in primary 25 days. Sampled it and was surprised how smooth it is after only 3 weeks. I could probably keg it and drink it now. It is crystal clear and has a nice blend of floral aromas and flavors from the Cluster hops that blends well with the corn. The yeast adds a slight ester profile to the beer that does not overpower the corn, nor the hops. The 6-row barley does not come across as overtly "grainy". Easy to brew, surprisingly smooth and well-balanced.

Easy drinkin
Very good easy drinkin summer beer I let mine lager a little over two months and just followed the recipe I do not think the hops are over done at all very good summer guzzler for the price you cant go wrong the longer lagering makes a big difference need to be patient

This beer is VERY good, I think the bitterness is perfect. I let it lager for three weeks, not two. It was still a little green the first week, but got spectacular after that!!!! This (IMHO) is what an American pilsner should have been. But if it was, we probably would have fewer home brewers if this is what Miller tasted like.

What is the additional equipment needed to make this Pre-prohibition lager?
A N on Jun 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The additional equipment would be that which is needed to brew all grain. A mash tun of some sort, brew kettle large enough to boil a five gallon batch, burner capable of boiling five gallons...
