Brown Box Beer Kits make 5 gallons of homebrew and are proudly made from the freshest ingredients available. All Brown Box Beer's kit building ingredients turn over every 7-10 days so there is none of this setting around in a pre-made kit in a box, on a shelf, for who knows how long. All grains are milled at the time your order is filled and shipped. Some substitutions may be made to the original recipe on this page due to ingredient availabilities. Please refer to the box contents on the next page to see what your box will contain.
