While commercial German brewing is dominated by lagers, fine examples of ales are still brewed there. This style is primarily from the Dusseldorf region. Ours is a rich, complex, amber ale with the unique nutty taste of Special B malt. Our kit comes with an authentic German Ale yeast strain. Also consider enrollment in one of our Upcoming Brewing Classes where we'll help take those brewing skills to the next level.

  • This kit contains all the ingredients you'll need to make five gallons of beer. You will be following a two stage fermentation system using a plastic bucket as a primary fermentor to contain the beer until heavy foaming ceases. The beer is then siphoned into a secondary fermentor, a five gallon carboy where the beer stays until fermentation is complete.

    Be sure you have all the equipment below before getting started. We carry everything you'll need to get brewing.
