Your Label Peelers Mango Lassi Cream Ale Original Beer Kit never sits on a shelf. Your grains are crushed to order. Your ingredients are packed fresh and you don't pay for a flashy box. It's all about providing you with the freshest ingredients for you to make your best beer.

Step into the world of brewing with our Mango Lassi Cream Ale kit, a delightful fusion of traditional beer making and exotic Indian flavors. This kit is your ticket to a light golden ale that dances on the palate with floral, citrus, and grapefruit notes, courtesy of 1 oz. Cascade Hops.

Your brewing journey begins with 3 lbs. of Pilsen Dry Malt, the backbone of your beer, providing a light, crisp base that allows the other flavors to shine. To this, you'll add 1 lb. of Lactose, a non-fermentable sugar that lends a creamy sweetness to your brew, reminiscent of the classic Indian lassi.

Next, you'll incorporate 1 lb. of Brewer's Crystals, a secret weapon in the brewer's arsenal, designed to boost the body of your beer without altering the flavor. This is paired with 8 oz. each of Biscuit Malt, Carapils Malt, and Flaked Oats, a trio that adds depth, complexity, and a velvety mouthfeel to your ale.

But what's a Mango Lassi Cream Ale without the star ingredients? 2 tbs. of Cardamom Seeds infuse your brew with a spicy, aromatic twist, while 4 oz. of Coconut Chips lend a subtle tropical undertone. The grand finale is 4 oz. of Mango Flavoring, which imparts a juicy, sun-ripened sweetness that will transport your taste buds straight to a lush Indian orchard.

With our Mango Lassi Cream Ale kit, you're not just brewing beer; you're crafting a multicultural experience, a symphony of flavors that tells a story with every sip. So, why wait? It's time to roll up your sleeves, ignite your passion for brewing, and create a beer that's as unique as you are.

star sanSanitizer and Spray Bottle

Good sanitation practices are absolutely fundamental to good beer making. Five Star San is the premier sanitizer you will need to make your Mango Lassi Cream Ale beer kit. A great practice for extra protection is to have a spray bottle filled with sanitizing solution so you can re-sanitize everything that touches or goes near your beer. Sanitation is much more difficult with beer than wine because beer has a higher pH. Wine's high acidity makes bacterial infection less likely but with beer, one small mishap can cost you your batch.

When your Mango Lassi Cream Ale is done, you will need bottles. This standard 12 ounce bottle is a good choice. You will need 54 for a 5 gallon batch. Bottles do not come with caps.

Carboys   

The 5 gallon carboy pictured here is the standard size for any beer kit. If you have never worked with a carboy, it is important to know they should not be moved full without a carboy handle or a carrier.

The pot pictured is an 8 gallon pot that is perfect for any beer kit or a standard 5 gallon batch. 

wart-chiller.pngWort Chillers and Thermometers

Wort Chillers and Thermometers are long term investments. It is important to chill your Mango Lassi Cream Ale wort quickly. The quicker you chill it the stronger the cold break will be. You also need a good thermometer that reads fast temperature fluctuations.  

SiphonsSiphons

Auto-siphons are a great luxury item to have in your brew equipment. Once you have one you will never go without it again. Don't forget to use a heavy duty sanitizer to clean it since you don't want to replace it as often as hoses. A good sanitizer for that job is Five Star San. 

FermenterFermenters

The fermenter pictured here is standard for a 5 gallon beer kit.

minijet-tubing-34987-97929.jpgHoses

 Many people reuse their hoses for far too long. Replacing your hoses often or even using as single use items is highly recommended with beer making. Hoses are very hard to clean and beer is very susceptible to bacterial infection. You do not want to risk losing your  Mango Lassi Cream Ale over a few feet of unsanitary hose.

Pouring your wort into a carboy can be tricky. Use a big funnel made just for the job. They even have different mesh screens to remove particles. 

AirlocksAirlocks

It is recommended to replace airlocks often. Because they never physically touch the beer, the sanitation risk is too often overlooked. Bacteria can spread without physical contact in a closed environment and plastic stubbornly harbors bacteria.   

6.5 stopperStoppers and Bungs 

Bungs and stoppers should also be periodically replaced. They can dry out and harbor bacteria. 

 carboy brushCarboy Brush

Keeping your carboy clean before and after use is key to avoid bacterial infection in your beer. A carboy brush is a great tool to get into those nooks and crannies.

Stainless Steel Carboy and Bottle Washer is a convenient way of cleaning your bottles and/or carboys.  This high quality tool will come in handy.  Hooks up straight to your faucet with the bottle washer adapter (#4804) and puts out plenty of pressure to clean those stubborn stains from beer bottles that have been sitting around. 

bottle capperCapper

When you bottle your Mango Lassi Cream Ale, you will need to cap your bottles. This capper is inexpensive, easy to use and does not require attaching to a counter. It has a magnet to hold the cap in place.

 DID YOU KNOW

At the end of summer, bines of hops are harvested and separated. To reduce moisture content, the hops are then spread out on the upper floor of an oast house and heated by heating units on the lower floor. Once dried, they are compressed into bales by a baler.
