Jimmy's Cream Ale - 5-Gallon Kit
Cream Ale is a light, pale beer style with flavor similar to American lagers, but fermented at warmer ale temperatures. This easy-drinking lawnmower beer tastes great on a hot day or is perfect for people who don't like those fancy craft beers. Rice is blended with malt extract to give this beer its crisp, refreshing character. No need for specialty grains with this kit.
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.
Kit includes: dry malt extract blend, specialty grains, hops, yeast, muslin grain bag, priming sugar, bottle caps and step-by-step instructions.
