An American adaptation of Vienna Lagers, the California Common is a copper colored, crisp, beer with enough malt backbone to warm the soul on a blustery San Francisco day. Fermented warm like an ale and kept in cold storage before bottling, California Commons are one of the earliest uniquely American styles of beer. Ours has a rich, long-lasting head and mild smooth flavors, followed by balanced hop bitterness.

  • 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.
