American Pale Ales (APA) are characterized by their moderate to high hop flavour using a citrus or floral American hop. This hop presence is balanced by the malt background which tends to be that of a biscuit or bready flavour. Overall this is a refreshing beer that is gold to amber in colour with a medium body. This is an excellent kit for those starting into all-grain brewing.
This kit consists of 2-row, Munich, Victory and Wheat Malts and has Magnum, Cascade and Centennial Hops. The provided yeast is US-05 from Fermentis but you can upgrade to WLP001 liquid yeast (if available) from White Labs below.

This is an advanced kit and you must be comfortable with brewing all-grain to ensure success with this product. Please ensure you are properly setup for all-grain brewing prior to purchasing this kit. Although we provide instructions, we are not responsible for your brewing technique.
