I have used this American Pale Ale kit for years as a base for making Spruce Ale, Wintergreen Ale, and Yellow Birch Ale. When brewing these, I eliminate the final hops addition with 5 minutes remaining in the boil, and substitute a double handful of spruce tips, wintergreen leaves, or shredded yellow birch bark. Doing this prevents the hops from overwhelming the flavor that I wish to come through. I no longer use the bottle caps, so I am accumulating quite a few...Art project?
Great kit, Well balanced with just the right amount of bitterness for this style of beer. Bought a second kit because I liked it so well.
I've got it started and it is going good thanks for asking.
This was my first batch and it turned out very well. It looks and tastes very similar to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. After 2 weeks being in the bottle it was still a bit cloudy from the yeast and bitter from the hops. Over the next week or 2 it cleared up very nicely and the bitterness mellowed. I'm not a fan of APA so probably won't order this again but this did turn out very well for an APA so I give it 5 stars and recommend it for anyone who loves a hoppy APA.
This was my first Real Attempt to home brew. Plenty of fun! Beer came out very clear (I forgot to add the whirlfloc tablet!!!) and tasty. I couldn't resist to open a bottle yesterday as a Bday present and with just 1 week of conditioning, beer is great! I'll brew again for sure!
