Default Jawbreaker Wheat Pale Ale

Has anyone brewed this kit from Midwest Supplies? There weren't a whole lot of comments regarding it on the Midwest website, but since I promised the lady I'd brew whichever one she picked off the site, I'm kind of stuck.

Just curious if anyone else has brewed it and could let me know what type of beer I'll be drinking in a few weeks once it's finished.

Thanks,
MD

Shenanigan, does Gumball Head have a hint of apricot flavor to it? The recipe doesn't say anything about adding flavored extract, but the kit came with a whole bottle of apricot flavoring.

So, if anyone has made it before, did they send you apricot flavoring too? I emailed Midwest about this and haven't heard back.

Ehh I haven't had it for about a year but I don't remember any apricot flavor. Pine and grapefruit more is what I remember.

Thanks for replying. It looks like I'm going to stay away from this if it has apricot flavoring... Just sounds strange. I don't really want the flavors coming from a bottle

I will update you on whether it has apricot flavoring in it if I ever hear back from Midwest.

The apricot flavoring was a mistake made in the warehouse. It was NOT intended for the kit. Hope that helps any future purchasing decisions.

Have it in secondary right now and just dry hopped. Bottling in a week and then trying the first one two weeks after that. When I took the stopper off the hop, smelled some faint grapefruit, but not overpowering. Can update once I try!

I'm looking forward to your update as well. I just moved mine to secondary tonight and it had a faint smell of grapefruit like you said.
