A simple specialty grain bill of wheat, chocolate and 60L paired with 6 hop additions of Cacade and Nugget makes for a hoppy brown ale that is bigger than the sum of its parts. This kit is Frank Petrarca's award-winning recipe from the Great Fermentations Brown Ale Competition. Savor the flavor!

Very nice brown ale with a stronger hop character than most brown ales. Easy kit.

Savor the flavor
Excellent. Perfect blend of roasty and hops. Best kit I brewed in 2014. Plan to brew this 2 or 3 times this year in 10 G batches as 5G at a time disappears way to fast. Use 1272.

Easy to brew, and only took 2 weeks to complete! Even my girlfriend who's not a fan of craft beer, loved it!

A go to kit
I've done this one a few times now. A great balance of roastiness and hops. Been having fun trying different yeasts. So far it has been hard to out do 1272.
