Product details

A rebellion against the traditional farmhouse ale, Storm the Bastille is an imperial brew for the ages. Ahtanum hops burst with a siege of spicy, fresh-cut herbals and mild citrus, bolstering a heavier hop profile than the standard saison beer kit. Each sip reveals riotous layers of citrus and yeasty, earthy funk. Storm the Bastille makes its mark as one of our highest-ABV kits in history, unexpected for such a crisp, refreshing pint.

Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

A large all-grain kit delivered on time

“Storm the Bastille” is Northern Brewer’s largest (by grain weight” 5 gallon beer kit. With Saison yeast, it is larger OG & ABV than BJCP allies for any strength of Saison, but in line with BJCP description of American Strong Ale. I look forward to brewing it, and have read other good reviews from those who have. The kit arrived on time and in good shape. With this large grain bill, I plan to parti-Gyle a second, smaller beer from the third & fourth runnings, after “storming the Bastille” with the high gravity 1st & 2nd runnings.

The Great Big Brew

Awesome brew, I’ve brewed it twice and it’s a winner. It’s a big brew with an easy bite. Make sure your yeast is happy, healthy and hungry and you’ll be off to the races. Enjoy it because you’ll want to brew it again!

A near perfect brew.

I've brewed quite a lot in the past year, many different styles, lots of belgian's too. I say with the utmost sincerity that this is the best beer I've ever brewed. I messed with the NB recipe, only slightly (varied the yeast and added honey) but the rest by the recipe. It tastes amazing. Make sure you age in secondary as the recipe says, I think that aging process really helps the yeast clean this beer up and melds the flavors together. This is an amazing example of the Saison style. I suggest anyone with a love for Belgians to brew this, it is not to be missed!!!!

This is a flavorful beer and it definitely packs a punch! It's not for the light beer types. My ABV calculation came in at over 11 percent. I would brew this again, but not right away. I'm going for a lighter ale next.

Best Beer Brewed

Hands down the best we've brewed so far. This was our 20th all grain batch. Everything went smooth on brew day. Used the Omega Saison yeast with a 2L starter. Hit the OG at 1.088. FG at 1.008. ABV was 10.5%. Only dry hopped with 1oz. of the French Aramis hops because we tried it after we racked from the primary to the secondary and it tasted amazing even without the dry hops. Let it sit for 2 weeks in primary, 2 weeks secondary, and 3 weeks bottle conditioned with 3.5 oz of priming sugar. It's absolutely perfect now. Great amber color. Aroma and flavor are on point. Will definitely buy this again as it's such a great value. Don't be scared to drink a super high gravity. No one that's tried it has said it's too strong. It's strong, a little hoppy, and best of all, refreshing.
