I've used a few N. Brewer kits over the years and all have turned out great.

I've never used that particular kit, but I've been happy with all of the kits I've done from them.

Can you find a link to the pdf file, so we can see the recipe and give you our thoughts?

As far as yeast, make sure you make a BIG starter. BIG. And then pitch at 48 degrees and hold at 50 degrees for about 7-10 days.

Looks pretty good, and two packages of the dry yeast will work great!

Let us know how it turns out.

Since I am using dry yeast, rehydrating per the yeast instructions are my best bet? The instructions for this want to ferment at 60 for a week or two then rack to secondary and start lagering.. Doesnt mention anything about a D rest though either.. may be best to do one after primary ends anyways?
