Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

The Brewing Network has become THE number one source for brewing information on the web. The Brewing Network's flagship show, The Sunday Session, was the first live show about homwebrewing and craftbrewing on the internet. Chad Moshier, the stations producer, created this brown ale as an easy-drinking session beer, and became a cult favorite on the show. Chad relocated to California from Connecticut, and hooked up with Justin, the founder of The Brewing Network.

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 smooth brown ale
I brewed this beer as a partial boil in my 5 gallon kettle using the extract recipe. I used American ale yeast. I Steeped the grains for about 30 minutes at 165. The final ABV percentage turned out to be 5 and a quarter percent.
Very easy and smooth to drink.

Good beer
Fermented with English ale yeast. After some aging it dropped very clean. Ended up not being exactly what I was looking for but still good
