Please note:

  • Ideally, you will need a mash tun with a 12.5-gallon capacity and brew kettle with a 7.5-gallon capacity. Smaller vessels can be used, but the recipe will need to be halved and combined. 
  • Two vials of yeast are included at no extra charge. They will be packaged on ice and must be refrigerated until use. Due to the sensitive nature of yeast, viability is not guaranteed.
