Shawnee Midnight Ale (Dark Ale)
A wonderfully rich easy drinking ale, Shawnee Midnight Ale is refreshing despite its rich dark color and roasty, malty nose. Notes of chocolate and caramel blend with hints of bitterness from both hops and roasted grains in a smooth clean finish. Using the well attenuating American Ale yeast, there will be little ale-like fruity character in the aroma.
Shawnee Midnight Ale contains 7.3 lbs Malt extract, 3.125 lb of milled grain for a mini mash, hops, priming sugar, fining agents and a Wyeast Activator smack pack.
Each Bacchus Batches kit is formulated to produce a specific style of beer. Since the quality
and alpha acid in hops vary sometimes significantly from one year to
the next or from one bale to the next we adjust the varieties and
amounts of hops in Bacchus Batches kit to provide consistent results.
