Organic Beer Kits
If you are a beginner, or
if you prefer to brew with extract, our Easy-Brew Organic Beer Kits were made
with you in mind. With a small grain bag (recommended for all of our easy-brew
kits), these kits can be brewed in about 2 hours. All of our Easy-Brew kits require
a one hour boil to produce a flavorful beer with the highest clarity possible.
Each kit contains fresh, premium organic malt extract, a small amount of organic
specialty malt, fresh organic hops, Irish Moss, and brewing instructions. You can choose from several options for bottling sugar when you buy one of our kits: organic dry malt extract (DME), corn sugar (dextrose), or nothing in case you plan to force carbonate the beer or use a different type of bottling sugar.
of the organic ingredients included in our kits are certified organic under the
USDA National Organic Program by California Certified Organic Farmers.
Each kit description includes
information about original gravity and IBU's (International Bittering Units),
to give you more information about the strength and bitterness of the beer produced
by each kit. An original gravity of 1.032 to 1.042 will produce a beer with a
lower alcohol content, a range of 1.043 to 1.054 will have a moderate alcohol
content, and an original gravity of 1.055 or higher will produce a strong beer.
Beers with a low hop bitterness will have an IBU of 30 or less, an IBU of 30
to 40 will produce a moderate bitterness, and an IBU of over 40 will produce
a strong bitterness. Because the strength of the beer and your own brewing techniques
influence the percieved bitterness of the finished brew, the above values are
intended as a guideline only.
YEAST OPTIONS: Our
kits do not include yeast because we offer so many different options. Unless
you plan to buy yeast locally, you must order yeast for your kit. There are
at least 2 choices of liquid yeast for all of our kits, which are referenced in the description of each kit. You also have the option to choose a different yeast style
than the one suggested for the kit you order. If you prefer, you may also
purchase dehydrated yeast for your kit instead of liquid. Dehydrated yeast
is less expensive than liquid yeast, and stores longer, but usually produces
beer of slightly lower quality than liquid yeast.
