Brown ale: it’s a thing. Once relegated to the division two of beers (mid-table with Milds), brown ales are now back with breweries around the world reinterpreting this classic Northern English style. This Chestnut Brown Ale kit from Brooklyn Brew Shop actually contains chestnuts to enhance the nuttiness that these beers are known for, along with everything else you need.
Northern English style brown ales are known for their rich and nutty flavours, and this ale is no exception; it results in a sweet, mellow flavour that is malty and yet with a balance provided by the hops. It is time to reclaim the brown ale and enjoy this amazing beer you’ve brewed yourself.
The kit contains: malt, hops and yeast, racking cane, thermometer, tubing clamp, glass fermenting jug, cleansing solution, airlock, clear vinyl tubing and a screw-cap stopper. You'll need to use some of your own basic kitchen equipment (a large pot, a funnel and a mesh strainer). Happy brewing!
