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. 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.
