Get ready for Snark Lord, a big, delicious imperial Stout modeled after a "dark" commercially available beer with a strikingly similar name. We developed this beer kit as part of our Brewer's Reserve line of beer kits based partially on the fact that the commercial version is only sold one day a year. We figured, why not make a snarky version of our own? A grain bill with loads of specialty grains gives this imperial stout a wonderful base on which cold-brewed coffee and vanilla is added. With a high original gravity, this makes quite the potent brew that can develop further complexity with age! We highly recommend saving back a few bottles in your beer cellar and bringing them out after six months or longer. What you'll discover when you open an aged bottle of this luxurious stout is a beer full of rich, heady flavors and aromas. All hail the Snark Lord!
Complete instructions are included with the beer kit. Our instructions include suggested mash temps, target gravity levels, hop addition times, and all the important brewing steps!
Our all-grain kits come with the necessary grains and hops for a 5 gallon batch. Grains come crushed, unless requested to be un-crushed in the order notes.Yeast is not included but we've provided a selection of recommended yeast (liquid and dry) that you can add to your order in the drop downs above. Clarifying agents (i.e. Irish moss) and priming sugar can be purchased separately.
