I just cracked open the first bottle of the last extract beer I made before going AG: Northern Brewer's Patersbier. It's been bottled for only two weeks, so it's still a bit green, but this is hands down the best beer I have ever made.

If you like Belgian beers at all, you need to try this recipe. I have 50 more bottles in the cellar and it's going to be all I can do to give away a single bottle (I usually give away about half of each batch to good friends).

This made my Saturday, and has proven to me that truly great beer can be made from extract. Next time I will try this recipe with AG ingredients and see if it can get any better!

Awesome news. I'm 1.5 weeks in on my primary of my Patersbier kit. Can't wait till I can enjoy it. I'm going straight from my primary to my Keg to secondary in there for a couple weeks.

This was one of my first beers. I watered it down too much so I was turned off by it. Surprisingly a month ago I was craving it. The fact that I remember the taste is enough to brew it again. It will be in my next order from NB.

How much did you water it down?

It was an extract kit and when adding back water it ended up at 5 1/2 gallons, perhaps a bit more. Basically it was thin and lacking depth. That being said, I could definitely see it's potential. It's one I want to do again.

Oh ok cool. I brewed mine the other day and threw it in the primary at about 5.25gal. Hopefully, it is not watered down. I used whirlfloc too and will probably end up with 5gal at bottling time
