Bacchus Ale Base Fresh Wort Kit (Approx SG 1045) Create your own Style !!!!
This Fresh Wort Kit is a simple ale recipe consisting of 90% Maris Otter English Ale malt and 10% Weyermann German Munich I malt with a SG of 1045. It is bittered to 20 IBU with a single 60 minute addition of Magum hops and contains no late hop additions. We have purposely made the grainbill simple and not added any late hops to produce a base ale wort that will allow the customer to add their own twist of creativity to design their own unique beer. The possibilities are endless for the variations you can choose. It can be made into anything from an English Bitter to, APA, IPA, Brown Ale, Mild, Irish Red or Porter. The choice is yours.

The wort can simply be fermented out with an ale yeast of your choice and some dry hops added after fermentation to make an easy drinking ale. Specialty grains can be steeped in a portion of the wort and boiled with additions of hops in the boil to create a more complex ale. If you want to bump up the gravity to make a beer with a SG higher then 1045 you can simply add some malt extract in with the wort in the fermenter. If you have the capability you can even boil the entire volume of wort in your brew kettle to reduce the volume and increase the gravity and add more hop additions along the way. Alternately if you want to make a beer with a lower SG than 1045 you can simply dilute with clean water in the fermenter.
