The Smoked Bee

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. 

The Smoked Bee showcases Gladfield Malt's Manuka Smoked Malt. It has a wonderful sweet floral smokey aroma and flavour sitting on top of layers of light toasty, nutty, caramel and toffee aromas and flavours with hints of dark fruits. It has a beautiful deep red brown colour and finishes medium dry.

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

You will also require 500g of honey to make this beer. We recommend using a honey with full rich flavour such as bush honey.
