These malts work together to create a complex flavor profile that will leave you craving more.
But we didn't stop there! To add a touch of nutty goodness, we've included 2 oz. of East Kent Golding Hops. These hops not only provide a subtle bitterness but also help to balance the sweetness of the beer. And to take it to the next level, we've added 4 oz. of Pecan Flavoring and 4 oz. of Vanilla Flavoring (using 2 oz. of each). These flavorings infuse the beer with a delightful nutty and vanilla essence, making it a perfect companion for a bowl of ice cream (ice cream not included, unfortunately).

Good sanitation practices are absolutely fundamental to good beer making. Five Star San is the premier sanitizer you will need to make your Pecan You Dig It Brown 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 Pecan You Dig It Brown 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.
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.
Wort Chillers and Thermometers are long term investments. It is important to chill your Pecan You Dig It Brown 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.
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.
The fermenter pictured here is standard for a 5 gallon beer kit.
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 Pecan You Dig It Brown 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.
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.
Bungs and stoppers should also be periodically replaced. They can dry out and harbor bacteria.
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.
When you bottle your Pecan You Dig It Brown 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.
