Brewers Best Ingredient Kit
Brewer's Best Ingredient Kits

AMERICAN LIGHT
This recipe uses the traditional combination of pilsner malt, rice and corn adjuncts. It is light-bodied, refreshing and thirst quenching. A very easy recipe to brew and an excellent entry to craft brewing.

AMERICAN PALE ALE
Perhaps the most widely brewed American style ale. Moderately strong hop aroma and bitterness. Pale ale malt base provides deep gold, almost amber, color and medium-bodied mouthfeel.

BELGIAN TRIPEL
Brewer's Best's Tripel contains one pound of light Belgian candi sugar to create a high gravity beer that is golden in color with a creamy, white head. This kit has plenty of dried malt extract and specialty grains to accent its complexity. The hops create a mild, spicy character.

IMPERIAL PALE ALE
This beer style has been perfected on the West Coast and Brewer's Best created this extract version especially for the homebrewer. This beer is very big, very hoppy and somewhat arrogant. Use your homebrewing skills to make the most of this recipe!

IMPERIAL BLONDE ALE
This recipe produces a malty, high gravity, full-bodied version of this easy drinking, well-rounded beer style. Golden in color, Imperial Blonde Ale uses the lightest malt extract available and a unique balance of domestic and imported hops. A great recipe if you like big blondes!

INDIA PALE ALE
Brewer's Best uses plenty of hops to accent this popular style. From the bittering to the flavoring to the aroma hops, they create the perfect balance for this clean, crisp pale ale.

IRISH STOUT
A dark, roasty, creamy ale. Although nearly black in color, this beer is medium-bodied and finishes dry from the roasted barley addition. Maltodextrin creates a thick, long-lasting head.

KÖLSCH
Kölsch is a crisp, clean, easy-drinking ale. It has a straw-yellow hue similar to a pilsner, but is less hoppy, a bit sweeter and uses pale malts and a small amount of wheat. The lager-like characteristics this ale is famous for are achieved by using a liquid Kölsch yeast.

SCOTTISH ALE
Brewer's Best's Scottish Ale is full of caramel malts, both in the extract and specialty grains. Chocolate malt, roasted barley and a touch of smoked malt bring this full-bodied, malty ale to completion.

SMOKED PORTER
Dark brown in color, this rich full-bodied Ale is smooth, with chocolate and coffee-like overtones. Smoked malt imparts a complex, pleasant aroma and flavor with a balanced and subtle hop finish.

SUMMER ALE
Pleasant citrus notes come from the bitter orange and lemon peel. Fermented with premium Safale US-05 dry yeast, this beer finishes clean with lingering flavors of citrus and spice. Crisp and refreshing.

VIENNA LAGER
Munich, Vienna and caramel malts combine to provide a rich malt aroma. When lagered this beer will finish clean and dry with no fruity esters. Vienna Lager is moderately hopped. This kit includes a lager yeast that will also perform well if fermented at ale temperatures.

WEIZENBIER
Wheat malt and European hops create the recipe for this easy-drinking summertime classic. Light-bodied with a smooth finish, this Weizenbier features an authentic dry wheat yeast.
