Good kit
Easy to brew. Nice dark color with a decent malt backbone. VERY drinkable. I added coriander and dry-hopped with Sorachi Ace for a nice lemony aftertaste. Good kit!

My First
This was my first adventure in home brewing. I bought the kit because I had a German exchange student a few years back from Cologne. She sends me the real thing from time to time, and I wanted to see if I could do it here.

I got good results, but I did not use a hops bag, and ended up leaving all the hops in for the whole fermentation.

Even with the colossal error, this turned out great. A bit more hoppy (think Kolsch IPA LOL) than I wanted, but I guess I got everything out of the hops.

end of the free dry yeast?
I used to love getting this kit as a filler with the free S05 yeast that was included. oh well, at least the price increase is a lot less than some of my other favorite kits (janet's brown)
