From The Manufacturer

If you can make oatmeal, you can make beer. Brooklyn Brew Shop’s kitchen-friendly Beer Making Kits makes brewing easy by using only fresh, whole ingredients and traditional methods used in homes and breweries for centuries. By brewing with the same ingredients (malted barley, hops, and yeast) that the best craft breweries in the world use, making high quality and complex beers becomes possible on the stovetop in your very own kitchen, big or small. Our best-selling beer making kit, The Everyday IPA makes every day a great one. With the perfect balance of fragrant citrus and bright bitterness, this kit will please the hop heads and the first time IPA drinkers alike. Columbus hops impart notes of floral grapefruit and earthy tangerine while the 6.8% Alcohol-by-Volume means you can sip one, or a few to make every day an IPA day.
