Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Recipe Kit

This recipe is our version of a classic American Beer – the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. This beer is an excellent pale ale style beer with a deep amber colour and a full flavour. It includes steeped and dry hopped Cascade Hops which give the beer its classic pale ale fruity, fragrant notes. If you are a fan of pale ales then you will not be disappointed. This recipe kit is another perfect way to take hopped extract beer kits to another level and is a great introduction to experimenting with hops and steeping grains for the beginner or ‘tin kit’ brewer.
