Description

(Makes 5 gallons) 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.

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.

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.
