Product details

Creating the railroad empire across the west took considerable fortitude, commitment, and a strong back. Empire Builder Cream Ale is a nod to that incredible effort.

This recipe boasts an original gravity of 1.074, certainly not for the weak of heart, and the sturdy malt backbone provides the basis on which this strength is founded. Speaking of commitment, Americans have brewed the Cream Ale style for a century or more, growing and adapting it right along with our railways. This scaled up version of the classic boasts clean malt flavors, a firm bitterness, and features traditional adjuncts to achieve its medium body. Pouring with a deep golden hue and capped with a dense brilliantly white foam cloud, Empire Builder Cream Ale forges west into the sunset, never looking back.

Cream ale

Great kit and hit OG of 1.07 even though had stuck mash. Nice smooth tasting ale. My only complaint is that the customer service on this order was very poor. I got very poor response when i notified them my order had not shipped after 2 weeks after placing my order. I was only told that they had some delays. When I told them I would like to cancel my order it was finally fulfilled and sent to me with a delay of 3 weeks from time of ordering.

This is the third time I've made this brew. Everytime it's fantastic. I missed the OG a bit this time but it fermented down quite low so it's more dry but I like that. It's fantastic after a day working in the yard. Will make again.
