Product Overview

Ditchberry Beer HBL 5 Gal Extract Only Homebrew Recipe Kit

Picking through thorny patches, the creator of this beer suffered years of torn trousers and nasty lacerations perfecting his recipe for wild blackberry brew. Later he found picking wild strawberries in ditches to be less hazardous and altered his ingredients accordingly. You, of course, can use any fruit you like.

Kit includes

  • 1 - 3.3lb Cans of CBW Golden Light LME
  • 1 - 3.3lb Cans of CBW Bavarian Wheat LME
  • 1 - 1 oz Cluster Hops

Yeast, Bottle Caps, and Priming Sugar NOT Included

HomeBrew4Less Homebrewing ingredient kits are built to order, please allow extra order processing time.

Note: You may have extra ingredients then you need to make this homebrew recipe due to standard packaging sizes, feel free to use them in another brewing recipe or boost the specs of this one.

You will need standard homebrewing equipment, bottles, etc - this kit is homebrew recipe ingredients only.

You may also need a scale to measure some of the ingredients (they are not pre-measured)
