Porter Call Me A Taxi Extract Kit

This recipe has stood the test of time. First brewed over 13 years ago and has been a Great Fermentations standard ever since. With an original gravity of around 1.054, this beer is so flavorful that it drinks as a much bigger beer. A rich unsweetened to semi-sweet chocolate palate comes from a pound of chocolate malt and 4 oz. of debitterized black. The palate is rounded out with some 60L crystal and enough Cluster hops to bitter. We suggest Wyeast 1007 German Ale for a dry finish or 1728 Scottish Ale for a more malty finish. Want to change it up? Add cacao nibs or cold-pressed coffee in the secondary.


Flat 12 Bierwerks 12 Penny Scottish Ale Extract Kit

A perfect choice for those that want a full flavored, low alcohol beer so you can have a couple. The Scottish Ale yeast has a pretty wide fermentation temperature range so we fermented at 58F and lagered the beer for 6 weeks. It has a slight maltiness, but also as a nice clean finish from the lengthy cold storage. Flat 12 brewer Rob Caputo collaborated with us on this session ale with plenty of flavor. A commercial hit when Flat 12 introduced it.


Red Ale Extract Kit

A pound of medium crystal, a little wheat for head retention and a bit of roasted barley for color. Five HBUS of Willamette for bitterness. Think malty red ale for the masses.

A beer just like those pub ales served across Britain, Across the Pond will whisk you away with one sip!

Hops Anonymous Extract Kit

Hop Anonymous is an American IPA brewed in conjunction with Andrew Castner, Head Brewer at RAM Restaurant and Brewery in Indianapolis. A nutty malt character and fruity, spicy, and resin-like hop notes all make this a very tasty pint. Castner describes his great fermentation: I wanted to see what flavors would come from large amounts of Victory Malt. The result was a pronounced nut and toast character in the malt to go along with the citrus and herbal aspects of the American hops. Dry-hop at least a week at room temperature to create character.
