Originating in Germany in the Middle Ages, this lightly sour and lightly salty wheat beer style has been coming back into fashion as a refreshing and fun summertime beer. This kit is a collaborative release - so take a journey down the Gose River (pronounced Goes-Uh) with the Beverage People and Anderson Valley Brewing Company with this modern and easy to brew interpretation. You can expect the acidity will not be as intense as a Berliner Weisse or typical American sour beer, while the incorporation of salt is light but just enough to make your mouth start to water. While our kit is un-fruited and has no coriander or citrus added, you may consider using the kit as a launching point for experimentation---the innovation and experimentation that is occurring within this beer style has been showcased well by Fal Allen, head brewer at Anderson Valley Brewing Co, who has plenty of inspiration for you in his homebrewers manual on the Gose style.
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.
