Williams Losing Its Touch
I've been a Williams customer for more than 25 years, and I'm here to tell you that Williams is definitely losing its touch on quality control. On two of my last three orders, which usually involve multiple kits, they've screwed up in one way or another. First it was the wrong extract. This time they sent the wrong aromatic hops. Probably smoking too much weed in the warehouse.

William's Responds:  Sorry for the problem you had with two of your last three orders. We have corresponded with you separately on this, and hope you will continue to grant us your business.  And no, we do not smoke weed in the warehouse or allow any sort of intoxication during working hours!

Great Beer. Easy to Brew
As usual, the beer kit from Williams comes quickly and performs perfectly.  I've never had a bad one.  I particularly like the brown ale as a malty, complex pint of goodness.  
It will be great to have this on tap when it's ready to pour.

I brew this again and again!
I find myself brewing this at least a couple times per year.  Always turns out good.  An easy brew that tastes good!  What more could you ask for?

First Brown Ale and my new favorite beer!
This was my first Brown Ale and I loved it.  To add my own touch, I used one half pound of local fall honey (bit darker and richer due to my region) and the result was amazing.  This was easily my favorite beer I've brewed so far, and my first time I could really notice the beer age and become richer tasting while in the bottle.  I would absolutely recommend this kit to any brewer and I'll be making this every fall.  Happy brewing!

Fantastic First Brew
This was my very first homebrew, and one of my favorite beers to drink. I did add 1 pound of honey at the beginning of the boil which made it a bit sweeter and stronger. So happy I kegged it so I didn't have to wait the extra 2 weeks to try it! Highly recommended and very easy recipe.
