Fitz's Irish Stout - 5-Gallon Kit
Irish Dry Stout is an iconic beer with its intense black color topped with a rich, creamy white head. The color and coffee flavors come from black roasted barley, while the head and rich mouthfeel are imparted by a generous addition of flaked barley. Don't be intimidated by the color though, this beer is actually fairly light in alcohol and could be considered a session beer.
I'm not sure how 5-Gallons became the standard batch size for homebrewers, but it's been that way for as long as I can remember, and since before home beer brewing was even legal. To brew this kit, you'll need a 5-Gallon or larger brew pot as well as at least a 6.5-Gallon fermenter, airlock, siphoning and bottling or kegging equipment. 5-Gallons fills about 53 12-ounce bottles. A good kitchen scale for measuring hops would help too.
The Dry Malt Difference
Our kits are made exclusively with Dry Malt Extract. Dry malt is more expensive, but I think it makes better extract beers. Unlike liquid malt extract, dry malt doesn't darken or pick up off flavors with high storage temperatures and age.
