British Bitter Ale – Extract Recipe Kit



British Bitters are an unintentional consequence of a change in British tax law. After the British changed their alcohol tax from a tax on ingredients to a tax on final alcohol content brewers discovered they could make very drinkable beer and still save tax money by reducing the wort gravity; however, they didn’t additionally reduce the hop content at the time, thus the creation of the British Bitter.
