BOTW - San Francisco Steam Beer

Probably the only indigenous American beer style, this beer is neither ale nor a lager as it is fermented warm with a bottom fermenting yeast. This example emerges with a malty profile balanced by a generous quantity of American Cascade hops. This beer should always be bottled.

Makes 10 litres.

I stumbled across the excellent Anchor Steam Beer at the Tap House and wanted to re-create it at home. This kit does just that! The instructions are much the same as other extract kits except this has the welcome addition of a cascade hops teabag which needs to be steeped for 15 minutes. If memory serves this kit needs a slightly warmer than normal temp for fermentation. My fermentation stalled but I managed to kickstart it after moving the fermenter to the airing cupboard. If temperature is an issue I'd recommend fermenting for a few days longer than stated on the label. I bottled in pint bottles using Cooper's carbonation drops. After maturing in bottles for a month I have to say that the beer is delicious and tastes just like the real thing. My only gripe is that this kit produces 17-18 pints only. If it was a 40pint kit I'd'd give 5 stars without hesitation.
