The beer of the Industrial Revolution. This smooth, creamy dark ale reflects profoundly its origins in 18th century Britain. Dark and toasty, medium hopped, this recipe would probably have met the expectations of M. Cesar de Saussure who wrote in 1726, because the greater quantity of the beer is consumed by the working class. It is a thick and strong beverage.... Consider this fine porter The Beverage People's toast to the working class (including ourselves)! Also consider enrollment in one of our Upcoming Brewing Classes

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.
