Description

John is at it again! Since purchasing our B3-2050 Brewing Sculpture a few years back, John Maier has created many specialty recipes just for himself. And since his I2PA was such a hit when we released it, we asked him for another one. Being the nice guy that he is, he sent over one of his private, 2050-System-only, impossible-to-taste-unless-you-live-in-Newport, Oregon brews - Blackened Brutal Bitter! John took his production beer, the wonderful Brutal Bitter, tweaked it around a bit and added some Carafa for color. The taste is out of this world! Try it and let us know. Or better yet, drop John a line and tell him!

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.

I'm a long-time (30 years) admirer of John Maier. (His wife, Stacey, and I keep in touch, sort of.)

I brewed this kit on 3-19-2019. At the time of me writing this, it sounds like it is still fermenting. Is this normal? It is temperature controlled to 68 degrees.

BEST ANSWER: Hi Patrick - I assume the actual date was 3/9/19? Please email us at info@moreflavor.com for additional assistance.

interesting beer, pretty good
I was expecting something like a black IPA out of this kit, but I don't think that is what it was aiming for. Has a good, firm bitterness, balanced by malt sweetness, but not as much hop flavor and aroma as an IPA/CDA. Still a pretty good brew, tastes like nothing I've tried before, so worth it in that regard. This is definitely one you have to condition for awhile...at least 3 months in bottles before it's good.

Ingredients were 9lb lme, 4oz maltodextrine, 2lb munich, 1lb crystal 60L, 8oz carafa II. Hop bill of 1oz magnum 90 min, 1oz cascade 60min, 2oz willamette 1 min, 1oz cascade dry-hop. OG of 1.074. Used WLP-001 in 1L starter, 62 degrees F. FG of 1.017, est ABV of 7.7% after carbing.
