Jamil is famous for being "The Pope" on the Brewing Network and having been one of the most award winning homebrewers of all time. He also co-wrote Brewing Classic Styles and Yeast: The Practical Guide to Beer Fermentation. Now he owns Heretic brewing one of the top breweries in the country.

Please Note: In order to better serve our customers, we are now offering our extract recipe kits with either Liquid Malt Extract (LME) or Dried Malt Extract (DME). The majority of our DME kits were converted from the LME version, which is why you may notice slight variances in the extract names and quantities on your recipe sheet. You may also find that your Specific Gravity and ABV% are slightly higher if you choose DME. Whether LME or DME, add all extracts provided according to the recipe sheet. For further details, please reference the conversion chart below.

Good Beer !
I bought this kit along with a MoreBeer starter home brewing kit for my daughter.(BRKIT#1) Brewed her first batch with her and the beer came out great. Not overly hoppy but nice finish and we both enjoyed it :)and my daughter is a hophead!
