Do you like Anchor Steam?

This recipe is in the same style, except this ULTIMATE version is stronger. We can't call it "steam beer" because Anchor Brewing Company has copyrighted the word, so now the beer style is officially "California Common." This is a special type of lager which is meant to be fermented at warmer temperatures. Although other lagers can be warm fermented, this one must be. Fermentation temperatures of 65 to 72 degrees are ideal. This Ultimate version has more of everything - more malt extract for greater body & higher alcohol content, and more hops. The result is a remarkably balanced beer that's strong and hearty without going over the top.


All our Beer Kits come in a variety of Formulations with two yeast styles and enough ingredients to make 5 Gallons. You can choose from Malt Extract with Steeping Grains, Partial Mash, and All-Grain. You also can choose between Dry and Liquid Yeast. We recommend purchasing an ice pack for liquid yeast purchases that will be shipped.

  • Malt Extract (if applicable)
