INTERMEDIATE BEER BREWING RECIPE PACKAGES
Our Intermediate Brewing Recipe Packages are partial grain/extract beers. Our exclusive recipes come with complete and easy instructions. They can be brewed by anyone at the intermediate brewing level. Beginners seeking the next level will not be intimidated, but all grain brewers looking for a quick batch will appreciate their convenience. They do *not* include bottle caps. They do contain suitable amounts of malt extract, pre-measured specialty grains, hops, priming sugar and yeast. However, if you prefer a liquid yeast culture, the appropriate yeast is available for the nominal upgrade fee.
We can ship an intermediate brewing recipe package to you via UPS. The $17.95 shipping/handling fee includes insurance. Yes, we know that's an extra cost, but you *will* get your brewing supplies delivered to your door! If you'd like to give someone a beer brewing recipe package as a gift, and have them pick it up at their convenience at our store, consider a gift certificate! Gift certificates are available in a variety of amounts at the bottom of each page; if you'd like a different amount, call or email us and we can take your payment information over the phone.
