Description

Craig has been perfecting his Travelin Man recipe over the years by brewing for competitions and for his own consumption at home. Travelin Man is at the high end of the pale ale guidelines, with a nice balance between the malt and hops. This is a great beer to let cold condition. Cold conditioning brings forward the malt flavors and makes it even easier drinking. Craig created this beer to take the edge off a long day of driving on the southern California freeway system and as his house ale. So whether you have been to the East or just feel like someone has given you the third degree, this fine ale will deliver what you are looking for. Craig recommends using White Labs California Ale Yeast.

Our recipe kits DO NOT include grain bags, yeast or priming sugar. To find our yeast recommendations, choose your preferred kit option above and then select the drop-down menu under “Yeast Options”.  For more info, click on the recommended yeast(s) below in the “You Might Also Need” section below. 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.

A favorite
A nice beer for the end of the day; it mentions cold conditioning, and I absolutely agree; after a few weeks in the keg it gets smoother and bready, just the way I like it. I brewed it with WLP-001 at 70deg (a warm week in a not-so-cooled closet) and it came out fine.

Tasted this two weeks after bottling. Not bad. I did not try it again for another week or two. Wow. What a difference. I will get this kit again for sure!!

Worth the travel
My son travels internationally in his work. Naturally, he samples local beers where ever he is. I made this genuine USA Travelin' Man Ale, and always make sure he has a supply to come home to. We both love it.
