6A truly great, full-flavored beer has the ability to make you pause and reflect. Open the bottle, fill the glass, sit in a comfortable chair, and the complexities and worries of life sort themselves in priority as the alcohol loosens the log jam in your cluttered mind. With this effect in mind, we have developed our Fireside Ale™.
Our Fireside Ale is a strong English-style ale, balanced and malty. Not at all like highly hopped microbrews, this one has a rich amber Maris Otter maltiness balanced by selected English hops. A well-rounded, full-bodied brew. Alcohol: 6.2%, IBU’s 35
In formulating the extract for this kit, a large proportion of light crystal malt was used in addition to the Maris Otter malt extract, for a rich partially caramelized maltiness. Includes 11 pounds of our blended malt extract, flavoring and aromatic hops, 125 ml of liquid ale yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.068.
