What Yeast strain do you recommend for this kit?
Marty Esthay on Jan 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am a huge fan of the Safale 05 for Pales and light IPA's. The dry yeast does not require a starter, and this brand does not even need to be hydrated. I have used it for years and not once has it failed to kick quick, eat fast and be ready to package after 2 weeks in the fermentor. The Safale 05 is super clean and allows the hops and grain profile to shine through.

inconceivably unique
Brewed twice, 1 extract 1 allgrain. Extract seemed to have a small bug in it, allgrain i had poor conversion. Still couldn't mess it up. Best of taste & aroma. Drinkable after only a few days in the bottle. Excellent beer recipe, year round. Good choice for allgrain newbies. Dirty beer while in process, but filter through nylon bag to botteling bucket won't be sorry. Have Fun!!

Conflicting info
This kit comes with instructions that has 10 lbs of 2 row, but the website say 12 and it was shipped with 12. Instructions say estimated original gravity of 1.050 to 1.055, but my inefficient system hit 1.073 with the 12 lbs of 2 row (more consist with the expected Gravity given the grain bill). It will be much higher alcohol than I expected, not that is bad thing at all, but I wish there was consistency in instructions and other info). We will see how it turns out.

Fantastic beer
I had my eye on this one for awhile and it was seemingly always out of stock, so I was very pleased to be able to order and brew this one last month. I also added the rind from 2 grapefruits when I did the dry-hopping and man did it turn out great! Smells and tastes amazing. Taking it to a homebrew competition this weekend.
