Our recipe kits DO NOT include grain bags, yeast or priming sugar.

All included steeping grains will come milled.
 
 
Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.

Rated 5 out of 5
I usually make this kit for a few of my friends that don't like anything fancy or flavorful. Just a basic easy drinking beer. Excellent choice for the masses.

Very good first lager
I've always liked this style of lager so no wonder I dove in with this as my first attempt to make a lager and it turned out just perfectly. After sorting out the plentiful directions and how that pertained to monitoring my keezer I had no problems. Just requires a lot more patience than brewing an ale, but what a great result.
