Final Review

Not a good recipe kit. Try the Brewer's Best version instead, perhaps. The Munton's yeast did not fully ferment so I had to top off with Safale S-04 to finish it off. The beer is rather thin with little roast flavor and is heavily over-carbed. I don't know if it is from the priming sugar or perhaps residual unfermented sugars.
