Beer Recipe Kit - Old Ale All Grain
Available in 23 L (6 gallon) or 19 L (5 gallon) batch sizes.
An old ale is known for its moderate to significant alcohol strength, although not overwhelming. Generally the focus of this style is for a nice balance of maltiness. This style is known for its malt complexity to warm you up on a cold winter night. The beer can have alcohol and oxidative notes comparable to Sherry or Port. The colour is light amber to very dark red-brown (may be darker due to oxidation) and can be opaque or transparent.
Aroma: sweet malt, fruity esters, dried fruit, caramel, molasses, and toffee. No hops due to extended aging.
Flavour: nutty, molasses and caramel flavours. There may be slight notes of chocolate or roasted malt flavours (optional). This style is malt forward, but there may be hops. Bitterness often depends on the amount of aging.
Medium to full body and low to moderate carbonation. Light acidity and slight tannin may be present if wood-aged.
