Note: This ingredient kit is a lager beer and requires that the temperature is maintained at ~55 degrees. If you would like to use an ale yeast and ferment at room temperature, you can select the German Ale yeast or the "No Yeast" option and purchase the yeast separately.

Extract kits are recommended for beginning brewers.

Extract kits contain malt extract along with specialty grains and is by far the most common kit type. 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 attempting all-grain.

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 attempting all-grain.

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 (pre-fermented beer).

All-grain brewing is the most advanced method for brewing beer and is recommended for those that have had some experience brewing extract kits.


We recommend liquid yeast for our High Gravity kits but if you would prefer dry yeast, you can select it instead. 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.

Review Comments: I thought this was a good beer. Mine seemed to be a little sweet but I used ale yeast. My buddy did his with lager yeast and it came out clear and more like a traditional Oktoberfest. Mine was cloudy started off kinda sweet but had a nice almost nutty finish. We enjoyed both batches. Also nice amber color and head. Great Kit!
