SoCo – California Common (Steam Beer) – Partial Mash
A California Common (AKA Steam Beer). This beer is brewed with lager yeast at warmer temperatures. This type of beer was made popular during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s on the West Coast when refrigeration was not available. A very refreshing and easy drinking beer that has a restrained hop bitterness and some caramel and spicy flavors coming from crystal and rye malts. This recipe kit DOES NOT include yeast or grain bags. We do provide recommendations for yeast in the “You may also like…” section at the bottom of this page.
