PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: I understand that this kit is for all-grain brewers and requires specialized equipment and knowledge to brew. East Coast Hoppers Kits include Instructions and BeerSmith files to help determine strike and sparge volumes and temperatures. Other kits may require brewing software or a knowlege of brewing calculations to determine water volumes and temperatures. It is up to the brewer to determine if this kit is appropriate for their equipment and techniques.
This is one of my wife's favorite beverages that I make. It is light in body with the nose being all strawberry and the finish slightly tart from the rhubarb, it has a crisp and refreshing flavor. Goes down great on a hot summer day or mid winter when you may be craving a blast of fresh fruit.
This kits gives you all the ingredients you need (malt, hops and yeast) with the exception of the strawberries, which you will need to supply (fresh or frozen) at a rate of 3.6kg per 23L and the rhubarb which you need to supply (fresh or frozen) at a rate of 1.2kg per 23L.
All malts for this kit come milled and are supplied mixed in one bag. Grains are not milled until the kit has been purchased. Milled grains will last for up to one year provided they are kept sealed in the bag they come in. If you are not brewing right away please put the hops in the freezer and the yeast in the fridge to keep them fresh.
