Our 5 Gallon Haymaker Light Lager homebrew kit is an American classic even Grandpa will like. A blonde to golden beer with a crisp, smooth taste while being richer in flavor and body than most commercial examples such as Budweiser and Coors. The 1.036 gravity leads to an ABV around 4.5%. Bitterness, at 11.4 IBU, and color, at 1.6 SRM, are both low in order to support the sessionable nature of Haymaker. Brewing lagers requires cooler temperatures for fermentation, take a look at our selection of Temperature Controllers

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.
