this was my second brew and i was skeptical at first. the box looked like it was from the 70’s and the instructions reminded my of an old manual. but man once I started with the boil the smell was amazing. i kept it in a bucket for 2 weeks and kegged it. after it carbonated for a few days and first poured it i thought i had a keg of Guinness. slightly off from the real deal but the flavor was delicious.

I brewed this beer about a week ago, and today I’m going to bottle! Shocking how quick my fermentation process went, it was probably 2.5 days at the most! I’ve checked my gravity and tasted that sample, and it definitely seems as though I’m on the right track.

Directions are useful if you are a beginner, and the ingredients seem to be very high quality. It’s an easy going beer, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

My final gravity is a tad higher than their recommendation, I prefer it that way anyway and, the color of the beer at this point is a little lighter than I imagined but I will edit this upon cracking open my first bottle in a months time

UPDATE

I opened up the first bottle after 4 weeks of aging. WOW. Very very smooth and very very dark! The head is slightly more golden than your regular Guiness – but is really creamy and delicious. It has a nice stout flavor that finishes with a little bit of a smokey flavor. Delicious! I ordered another one of these kits and am brewing a second batch tomorrow! Great brew all in all and definitely worth it. For the novice brewer or the experienced brewer who needs some extra suds stored away.

Enjoy this kit, and remember: you’ll only be successful if your first step is opening a fresh bottle of your favorite beer!
Cheers!

Very pleasantly surprised!, December 18, 2014

I purchased this kit over a year ago and it just sat on my office shelf and it would get moved around every once in a while. The brew buckets were in the attic and the carboy was full of dust and dead bugs. My auto siphon was broken in half so I kept putting it off. I ordered a new auto siphon and then moved homes where everything got stashed away. In October for some reason it began calling my name so I got out the kit, washed and sanitized everything and got to work.
I couldn’t believe how enjoyable it was. I make breads and cheese on a regular basis and this fits right in. Mix, wait, stir, cook, wait, etc….
In the meantime I bought up every possible brewing book and joined some beer forums. That is a MUST. The beer forums are a limitless knowledge base. There’s someone who can answer any question you may have and help you through anything.
I bottled my beer on Nov 22, 2014. I opened my first bottle the other night. I was very impressed. I gave a bottle to a friend who I consider one of the best beer connoisseurs around. He knows his different styles of beers and all of the various nuances. This is his comment: Just opened the stout. First sip I wasn’t so sure but its growing on me. I’m going to wait a few weeks before I open the second one and maybe it will be even better. Like you said, Its definitely hoppy. So it took me by surprise but once the hoppy surprise sunk in and my taste buds got used to it i l liked it more and more with each sip. It has IPA and Amber – like hoppy characteristics but with the malty body and color of a stout. Honestly what I was expecting was somewhere along the line of Guinness but its much better than Guinness. This actually doesn’t taste like any Irish Stout i’ve had before. Its different. And I like that! It reminds me of a Dopplebock, which is similar to a Black Lager but hoppy like an IPA or Amber. Overall I give it an 8.5/10 definitely looking forward to my next bottle. Good job friend. Cant wait to try more of your brews!!
