Default Caribou Slobber

This is going to be my next batch. Already have a Oatmeal Stout with molasses and Coffee Porter fermenting. http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/brewing/recipe-kits/extract-kits/caribou-slobber-extract-kit.html

Have any of you modified thie recipe? I looks real good the way it is.

Gotta love the name too Caribou Slobber

I've made the kit and it turned out awesome. Don't mess with it too much because it's good as is

I agree this kit was great and I didn't modify anything. I may have split up the lme addition but I can't exactly remember. This beer is one of my favorites so far and I will definitely be brewing it again soon.

Ive brewed this three times and it is always a crowd pleaser. I do a full boil but other than that its true to the recipe.

I've made it twice. 1st was extract and I just brewed the all grain version last weekend. I added 1 lb of light brown sugar at flameout the first batch and it came out fantastic! Gave it a little kick up to 6.2% ABV. I did the same thing on my last batch as well, but scaled down the brown sugar just a bit since I now use Beersmith and could dial in exactly what I wanted to achieve. This time I added 10.4 oz of brown sugar 5 mins before flameout. This is my favorite brew so far.

I may be drunk, but I'm not sure.

It was the second batch I ever brewed. I enjoyed the beer, and it was quite similar to the Moose Drool from Big Sky Brewing Company, which is what it is trying to clone.

I made the extract version, and made no intentional changes. Being it was only my second batch, I am sure there were some things that I did that were not part of the instructions simply because I didn't know better.

I made the extract version before my current brew on tap and it was awesome as is!

I drank the entire corny in like a week and half with a small amount of help from my buddy who surprisingly liked it being he's more a wheat beer fan and hops sensitive.

He's a fellow home brewer and he thought it had just the right amount of bitterness without being overpowering so the malt still shines.

I think you'll like it and it's on my list to make again for sure.
