This all grain recipe kit is for the Helveticus Kettle Sour beer that Jonny brewed to pair with Square Root Cola for a Cola Shandy.
The beer is a lemon and lime citrus sour that as well as pairing well with cola is a great beer to drink on its own or to even learn the skills of making your own sour beer.
