Brewing made easy! Make your own real ales from scratch and become a bonafide craft brewer in a few hours.
Get them started on a great new hobby - the perfect gift for someone who likes to be creative and loves beer and cooking!
Have all the fun of creating delicious real ales without any unnecessary hassle or mess. We have specially developed equipment and instructions to make your craft brewing as simple and user-friendly as possible.
Fresh is best, and because we mill the grains ourselves on-order and vacuum seal them, they arrive to you as fresh as possible. Our high-quality hops are pre-measured for ultimate ease and our yeast is sourced from a renowned craft beer yeast developer. Unlike some other kits out there, you also get kettle finings to help you clarify your beer, brewer's sugar for carbonating, a detailed step-by-step instruction booklet with brewers notes, and a quick guide and a set of complimentary beer labels which you can personalise with your chosen beer name.
Each Starter Kit includes the specialist Brewing Equipment and a Recipe Pack:

Packaging: the equipment and recipe pack come nicely packaged in re-usable jute/cotton bags.
Our fermenter is smaller than an average food-processor so can fit easily in your kitchen - just 24 cm x 28cm when the airlock is attached and 21cm high when airlock is removed for storage.
The 12L stainless steel stock pot is 24cm internal diameter x 21cm high and is induction and oven safe.
