  1. Amazing

    I just tapped the keg on this beer this weekend and I can not believe how good the beer turned out. I have tried on three different occasions to brew a Helles each time they came out average and lacking something. This turned out having everything you could ask for in a good Helles. Highly recommended!

    This kit makes a great lawnmower beer. It seems to fit style profile pretty well, so if you're looking to make an example of a Munich Helles, this one is a good choice.

  3. Good basic kit

    This was my first experience at buying a kit. I had invited a couple people over to show them what it took to make a home brew. I ordered this kit late at night and it was ready the next day for pickup. The kit price at this time is $15.95 and the price of the individual components (today) if bought separately is $14.28. A premium of $1.67 is not too bad to have the kit pulled together for you with no need to research a recipe, check for stock availability, grind the grist, etc..

    When I picked up the kit the grain was well milled. The advertised O.G. of 1.054 compares favorably with a calculated 1.057 at 75%. Unfortunately, this was just my second all grain brew and my system and process is not very good and I get much less efficiency. I cannot blame any of this on the kit. The kit does say it is an advanced kit but the process directions are pretty simple with a single mash out temp.

    Luckily, I had some pale Pilsen DME and I was able to use that to bring the O.G. up to spec. I will make sure to replace that so that I am ready for my next all grain batch. If you have any question about your brew house efficiency, I'd recommend picking up some extra malt for post mash adjustments.
