Havent tried this one yet. How does this stack up against the MJ Juicy IPA? Have done that and the Raspberry Berliner Weiss, and they've both been total winner. Now torn between the Simcoe and the Brut IPAs for the next one...2 x MJ Simcoe IPA, bottle conditioned, not as nice as the same brew in the corny keg as it seems a little greener? Still good tho ( I bottle 4 or 5 that don't go in the corny)
Hi @Pablosaurus, I find them a little to bitter and not as nice as a JIPA (juicy IPA) given time the bitterness subsides but I'm an impatient fecker. I have done the Brut IPA a couple of times and is a nice pint although the first time I did it I added more DME than I should (didn't read the instructions...DoH) and it turned out stronger than it should. I would recommend them both for different reasons, the Simcoe is darker with a more pronounced taste and the Brut is dryer than an Arabs flip flop.Havent tried this one yet.

I'm a big fan of the Beerworks stuff, but not yet tried this one. Sticking it on my next order.I'm on a Beerworks Golden Rocket Strong Pale. Been in the bottle for just over a month and I'm mightily impressed. Lots of body and a lovely silky mouth feel. Absolutely pub standard beer. It's quite unusual, being a 'regular' pale (not a hoppy IPA) and strong, at around 6%. Not surprising since the kit comes with 3kg of malt and 1.2kg of additional LME. Can definitely recommend!

@Pablosaurus I think my favourites are (in no particular order), Dragon's Special Kentish bitter, Sheepdog's Pride Suffolk bitter, and Uncle Teddy's Yorkshire bitter. These are all good, refreshing beers with taste aplenty. Of the stronger beers Will's Olde English Ale turned out well (but treat with respect!), and I was impressed with Guinea's Irish Stout.@Merkin - you won't be disappointed - it has a really moreish biscuity taste, and great head retention. I haven't done any other Beerworks kits yet, but plan to this year. Which would you recommend? I'm open to anything as long as the quality is there. Amazing that this level can be achieved from a kit these days - I don't really see much point in pushing up to all grain until I've exhausted all the BW and MJ Craft options (given homeschooling, family life, fulltime work etc.)
Strangely enough, I was looking at that the other day (it was the Citra hops that got me) and have already mentally added it to my next order. I had hoped to be able to settle on one or two beers to produce on a regular basis, but the whole of the Beerworks catalogue is just too tempting!The Beerworks Presidents Sierra American pale ale kit is fantastic.
