A British mild is said by some to be the perfect beer. The ultimate “session beer”, it is never out of season, and it is very drinkable. Rich in flavor with biscuity and caramel notes, but low in alcohol so you can enjoy several at a time, our version has a secret ingredient that sets us apart from all the others. With an OG of 1.037, it will be ready to bottle in about 10 days so it is a quick beer. You and your friends will love it!
All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!
You can trace the origins of milds all the way back to 17th century Britain, where the malty profile and low gravity beer first became popular locally, before spreading throughout the world by the 1960s. Now milds are a favorite among beer lovers all over the world.

I sort of wish the kit shipped with printed step-by-step instructions, even just general ones, I'm a sort of new brewer who has done mostly all-grain batches and decided I'd like to gaurantee that this beer works so I ordered an extract kit. As a result I've had to cobble together my own instructions through a mix of the Briess website and from a mild recipe from the Brooklyn Brew Shop. The ingredients are of good quality and I am very happy that everything came so conveniently packaged and I am sure it will work out, afterall, keep calm-don't worry-have a home brew, but some instructions, even standard ones, would still have been nice.
