Came into it's own.....

Review by Christopher L. on 3/3/2009

Pros: Nice kit, great description. Great flavor after 4 months in the keg.

Cons: I agree, the kit instructions and the equipment directions were different. Tasted lousy after one month...aging is the key to this ale. It is very nice now...

Fireside Ale

Review by Gregg S. on 2/6/2009

Pros: This was a very well balanced beer for winter consumption. Watch out, this beer goes down easily, and packs a punch. Easy to brew, and Iagree with the previous reviewer regarding using a secondary.

Cons: None

Nice kit

Review by Scott D. on 1/31/2009

Pros: Malt forward with just enough hop bitterness to keep it from being cloying. Great head and flavor after three weeks in the bottle.

Cons: Maybe a little bit more hops next time. Also, a secondary is very helpful for this recipe

Review by michael p. on 12/10/2008

Pros: excellent ingredient kit compared to others i have brewed.
