Baltic Porter (13 gallons All Grain)

Kentucky Cream Ale (25 gallons All Grain)

Smooth and refreshing like a light lager. This beer was made with a significant amount of corn to lighten up the body even further. Hops were used very sparingly. We used ale yeast and then cold conditioned the beer for over a month to make it very smooth.

Racer 5 India Pale Ale (21 gallon all-grain)


Nut Brown Ale (5.5 gallon All Grain)

Styled after southern English brown ales, our Nut Brown kit is a great all-around beer: it's easy to brew (its dark color and rich flavor make it forgiving of mistakes), it's mild enough for light beer drinkers, but characterful enough for more experienced brewers and beer lovers. The finished product exhibits a deep copper color, fruity/caramelly flavor and aroma with toasty, chocolatey notes; and it tastes great after just a few weeks.
