Beer Information

This kit includes two of our most popular beer mixes and the 2-gallon fermenter is made from FDA-compliant plastic, which leaves no taste or flavor migration.

Lightweight and shatter resistant, it has a wide mouth that allows for easy cleaning.

The 8 reusable plastic bottles are made from Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) plastic, and they come complete with screw caps and labels.

Hand wash keg and bottles in warm water with a soft cloth using mild, unscented soap, not dish soap, and avoid using scouring pads, wire brushes, or abrasives during cleaning.

What does "micro brewed" beer mean?

These are specialty beers with more flavor than the mass-produced type.

They are made in very small quantities and only available in the local town where they are brewed.

They are all-natural and contain no additives or preservatives.

How should I store the beer?

We recommend refrigerating the beer once you receive it to preserve optimal freshness.

If refrigerated, the shelf life is 8 to 12 months.
If you do not refrigerate the beer, the shelf life is 4 to 6 months.

Always store beer in a cool, dark place away from light.

Serving Microbrewed Beer:

Pour beer into a room temperature glass, do not drink out of the bottle.

The carbonation of the beer will not be releases properly and you wont get
the frothy head to savor and admire.

Do not chill the glass.

What is Sherry
Sherry is a wine which has been fortified with Brandy.

There are three types of Sherries: Dry, Medium and Sweet.

You can serve dry sherries over ice.
Sherry is usually served straight.

Serving Temperature for Red Wine

Red wine should be served at room temperature,62 Degrees F.

This is why we use wine cellars, since an average room in a home is never 62 degrees!

The rule of serving wine at room temperature came about before the modern heating system or air conditioning.

100 years ago, 62 degrees was the average room temperature in a home in the winter, if not a bit cooler.

As people develop more sophisticated tastes, a basic understanding of wine, beer, and distilled spirits is more important than ever for chefs, servers, bartenders, and restaurant managers.

And for anyone who simply wants to get more out of enjoying wine, beer, and spirits, developing an appreciation for the history, production methods, and techniques for evaluating alcoholic beverages is an essential first step.

For professionals and amateurs alike, Beverage Basics provides a thorough and accessible education in the fundamentals.

Beverage Basics covers the art and science of winemaking from the vineyard to the table, takes a comprehensive look at the production methods, styles, and ideal food pairings for beer and spirits, and even covers the often-overlooked issues of health and the law.

Written by wine and spirits expert and educator Robert W. Small, the book offers expansive coverage of everything you need to know about virtually all of the world's common alcoholic drinks.
