Dawson's Kriek Extract Beer Recipe Kit
This recipe, a sour Belgian-style ale, comes from the brewing log of NB Michael Dawson, homebrewer for 13 years and harborer of bacteria for probably a lot longer than that.
Cherry-infused sour ale. A medium-bodied wheat beer with a reddish-brown color, cherry-pie aroma, and a tart, acidic bite that comes from a combination of real cherries (in puree form) and cultured bacteria.
While young, the sour character of this beer will be subdued and the cherries more pronounced, but sourness will increase with age.

I didn't get yeast with the order due to a glitch. I person that I had contact with was very nice and said you would send the yeast wyeast 3278; but I have not received it yet.
The receipe is not very clear. To make a 5 Gallon batch, you will need 5.5 Gallon Carboy for Primary and then 5 G for Secondary along with the added Cherry.
Have used these kits before and they turn out wonderful. You don't have to wait 12 months to drink them....but, they do get better with age. I bottle and age in the secondary. Also, you can add a can of Oregon Fruit Products Bing Cherries to the primary for added flavor and alcohol content.
This is an amazing kit from northern brewer. I would highly recommend if you like sour beers .
it looks good and smelled good . It will be 4 more months before it can be tasted.
