- 3.8 / 5.05 ReviewsMehI didn't enjoy this one very much. The spices were overwhelming. It has gotten more drinkable after sitting in the keg for several months, but even so, it's not one I enjoy drinking. If I did it again I'd just make it without any spice.January 6, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoFantastic Brew!!Great kit! Actually got over 15 gallons of wort from two 5 gallon AG kits. The last five gallons came out of the mash at 1040! Was able to make a great session IPA with the left over wort. The first 10 gallons were amazingly tasteful, full boddied and when keg, had great head and retention. A real winner! Will be brewing this one again!September 2, 2016Pretty Solid, But Consider BitternessWhen I saw an ounce of 14% alpha, I thought "I ain't doin' that". I went with 1/2 oz nugget at 45 minutes. Even that, as the other flavors fade, after about 30 or 45 seconds, I get a little residual bitter.That being said, this won out when put up against a couple of real craft brew saisons (not those soda pop megabrews...those would be too easy to beat). This actually had more robust mouth feel than the commercial examples, so I was surprised at the "thin" comment. I was worried when I tasted it warm and flat...I thought "this is a dalmn shandy". It does have a ton of citrus, and I didn't leave the late additions in during whirlpool either. But once it was cold and had the carbonation bite, it was one of those where you could see yourself drinking a few on a hot day without batting an eye.The yeast (Belle Saison) was pitched at 65 and I controlled the temperature rise to about 75 over a week or so. It didn't gobble through it real quickly, but dried-out well. Pretty dry, but still decent percieved sweetness. http://i.stack.imgur.com/i6VSo.png (the weirdness is refractometer-with alcohol-formula vs hydrometer). I don't remember what the OG was "supposed" to be, but it went from 1050 to around 1000 or so, and I got almost 20 liters kegged.June 19, 2016A little too thin for meHit the OG, but not much body to this one, which is not typical of NB recipes.April 4, 2016Pretty darn solidSeeing as no one has posted a review yet I figured the time had come since it deserves at least one rating. I brewed this guy up last fall and it came out great despite having a broken thermometer (that was a lame surprise and story for another time) and missing some of my numbers.The beer itself is nice and bright, and also incredibly peppery/citrusy from the lemongrass. It was a big hit with my friends, family, and neighbors, and now it's currently bubbling away again after hitting my numbers correctly (thanks, Thermapen!) This time I cut the lemongrass down by a quarter ounce as some mentioned that it was a bit overwhelming, but I'm happy to brew it again. Definitely deserves attention for a crisp, cheap, easy brew.One more note: this wort is the murkiest I've ever seen. Sweat not, though, as it ferments clear as day.March 29, 2016
- Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 3 answersWhen brewing this mine came out very light in color, almost a grey tint. Protein rest was on the money at 122 degrees, the saach rest may have been a little low (148?) and i used 2 gallons to get there. Why is it so light?BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't expect much based on the grain bill of wheat and pils. Most saisons should be very pale / light - I imagine this is a stock image or they picked up extra color from either LME or spices sitting too long. The most important thing is how it tastes!I ,ade the extract kit, followed the directions to the letter. I'm going to be bottling tomorrow. My question is that it came out very very dark! I can't figure out why. The photo on the site shows a nice golden color, mines about like a dark ale.BEST ANSWER: There are a couple of reasons the beer could have turned out darker than expected. Most often the culprit is the malt extract syrup. Malt extract syrups will darken over time
and so if not used for several months can become darker than they were originally. Additionally
if any malt extract was scorched on the bottom of the kettle during the boil that could account for a darker color as well. If that's the case
you'll probably notice a carmelized sugar taste in your brew. If you don't think either of those is the case I encourage you to give us a call at the number at the top of the website and we can continue to help you troubleshoot.
