ATF Hop Hugs (NZ Pale Ale) - Grainfather

This kit qualifies for free Lallemand Nottingham High Performance Ale Yeast while stocks last. To receive free yeast select it in the "Select Yeast" dropdown box and adjust the quantity in the cart to the recommended amount for the batch you are purchasing. You will be supplied with the amount of yeast in your cart capped at the recommended amount. 

Wrap yourself in the juicy hoppiness that is ATF Hop Hugs. Sitting on top of a full malt base with a toasty, nutty caramel character, abounds a range of juicy tropical and citrus fruit with floral notes. With a smooth satisfying bitterness leading to a dry to off dry finish you won’t be able to put it down.

Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using Lallemand's BRY-97 West Coast Ale Yeast, or you could also try Safale US-05, Lallemand Nottingham High Performance Ale Yeast or Mangrove Jack's West Coast Yeast.

Selecting the yeast from the dropdown box above will add one packet to your cart. Please click the + symbol beside the amount to increase this to the recommended quantity for the batch size.
