Byron Burch, founder of The Beverage People, won Homebrewer of the Year with the stout that inspired this recipe. A very high gravity stout with rich chocolate and roast malt flavors, it epitomizes the ale style originally brewed for Russian Empress, Catherine II, in the 1780's. This version is a wonderful beer for a cold winter's night. 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.
