Classic Recipes

All classic recipe kits conform to the BJCP Style Guidelines. Classic recipes are generally in stock and available in the store. They are not available through online ordering.

American Amber

Pale Ale malt combined with medium caramel malt creates a rich, copper color. Bitterness is balanced to match the malt character. Smooth clean finish with moderate carbonation level.

IBUs: 29 - 32   ABV: 4.75% - 5.25%   Difficulty: Easy

American Cream Ale

An ale version of the American lager style. Clean, light and simple to brew. Faint malt notes with a hint of corn-like presence. An easy drinker.

IBUs: 16 - 18   ABV: 5.25% - 5.75%   Difficulty: Easy

American Light

This recipe uses the traditional combination of pilsner malt, rice and corn adjuncts. It is light-bodied, refreshing and thirst quenching. A very easy recipe to brew and an excellent entry to craft brewing.

IBUs: 13 - 16   ABV: 4.0% - 4.5%   Difficulty: Easy

American Pale Ale

Perhaps the most widely brewed American style ale. Moderately strong hop aroma and bitterness. Pale ale malt base provides deep gold, almost amber, color and medium-bodied mouthfeel.

IBUs: 32 - 36   ABV: 5.0% - 5.5%   Difficulty: Easy

American Pale Wheat

This is an easy drinking ale blending the styles of pale ale and wheat beer. The malt bill is based on wheat extract and flaked red wheat and will provide a light copper color and ample head retention. American Pale Wheats are hoppier than traditional wheat beers and American Cluster and Liberty hops lend a moderate hoppiness. BRY-97 yeast ferments a clean, ale flavor profile without the banana and clove phenols that its German counterpart has. This beer is very drinkable and is most enjoyable fresh, just after bottle conditioning.

IBUs: 31 - 35   ABV: 6.25% - 6.75%   Difficulty: Intermediate

Continental Pilsner

One of the world’s classic beer styles, this recipe is best enjoyed when lagered. Pilsner malt extract produces a straw color. A dry beer that finishes with ample hop bitterness. This kit includes a lager yeast that will also perform well if fermented at ale temperatures.

IBUs: 28 - 33   ABV: 4.0% - 4.5%   Difficulty: Intermediate


Munich and chocolate malts combine to create a darker, maltier version of its lighter counterpart, Weizenbier. Amber-brown in color yet medium-bodied with a slightly sweet, bready flavor. A specialty wheat yeast produces the characteristic phenols found in traditional Weizens.

IBUs: 10 - 13   ABV: 4.75% - 5.25%   Difficulty: Easy

English Brown Ale

This medium-bodied brew has a malty character surrounded by a nutty aroma. Crystal malts with a touch of chocolate malt create the brown color balanced by a subdued hop flavor.

IBUs: 21 - 25   ABV: 4.25% - 4.75%   Difficulty: Easy

English Pale Ale

A classic English style that yields medium-high bitterness above a foundation of caramel maltiness. Hop character is derived from a heavy bittering addition. This is a well-balanced, drinkable Special Bitter.

IBUs: 30 - 33   ABV: 4.25% - 4.5%   Difficulty: Easy

German Altbier

A classic German style, this Altbier is amber colored with a nice malty character. It is moderately hopped maintaining the true style of this Amber hybrid. A great beer to ferment cool and cold condition.

Irish Stout

A dark, roasty, creamy ale. Although nearly black in color, this beer is medium-bodied and finishes dry from the roasted barley addition. Maltodextrin creates a thick, long-lasting head.

IBUs: 30 - 35   ABV: 4.5% - 5.0%
