British Special Bitter Extract Beer Kit With Steeping Grains

This flavourful, and easy-drinking session ale was originally a gravity-fed draught and the best a brewery had to offer. Our British Special Bitter extract beer kit is crafted from the highest quality extract and steeping grains producing smooth and light malt character. Plus a well-rounded hop schedule contributes mild-moderate bitterness, flavour and aroma. A great brew for beginner extract brewers who enjoy British and American-style bitters and IPA’s and are anxious to integrate steeping grains into their brewing process.

Please note: Yeast is now sold separately. Strain options linked above.

    I think this was my 10th brew, a great beer for those who like an ESB.

    Like all goldsteam kits, the ingredients are fresh, and the directions are clear and easy to follow. The brewing process remains the same for the recipes, but it is amazing how the finished product hits the mark for the claimed style. Jason does fantastic work, and I am so thankful to live so close to chilliwack.

    Very easy brew kit. Only been bottled for two weeks, but it’s already very drinkable.
