All High Gravity Kits are available in Extract, Brew-in-a-Bag and All-Grain versions.
Just select which version want when configuring the kits.
Extract kits contain malt
extract along with specialty grains. Extract kits rely on the malt
extract to provide the fermentable sugars and the grains are primarily
for color and flavor. This is the most common type of beer kit and is
recommended for those who are just getting started or those that want to
make a great tasting beer without a lot of effort.
BIAB Kits require additional brewing knowledge. Brew-in-s-Bag
eliminates the extract and completely rely on the grains to produce
the fermentable sugars needed to make the beer. BIAB uses one vessel to steep the mash and to boil the wort with the entire volume of liquid added at the start of the mash.
This method also requires that the entire volume be boiled so a 40qt+
pot is needed to boil the wort (pre-fermented beer). It is
recommended that you have some experience brewing extract kits before
All-grain kits eliminate the
extract and completely rely on the grains to produce the fermentable
sugars needed to make the beer. Additional equipment is required, such
as a mash tun and hot liquor tank. This method also requires that the
entire volume be boiled so a 40qt pot is recommended to boil the wort
All-grain brewing is the most advanced method for brewing beer and is
recommended for those that have had some experience brewing extract
Yeast Options: Our High Gravity
kits do not include the yeast by default. This way you can select the
yeast your would prefer. Liquid yeasts provide a wider range of flavor
profiles but are very susceptible to temperature variations. This can
cause problems when shipping during very hot weather. Dry yeast,
however, will not be damaged in transport because of weather conditions.
You may also want to choose your own yeast. If so, you can select the
"No Yeast" Option.
Ice Pack: When shipping liquid
yeast, an ice pack is highly recommended, especially during hot weather
to help ensure the viability of the liquid yeast. There is an additional
cost of $1.00. High Gravity will not guarantee the viability of liquid
yeast shipped without a cold pack.
