How To Brew
There are three ways to brew beer - with extract, with a fresh wort kit or with all grain.
If you’re new to brewing, grab yourself a starter kit. These handy kits include a fermenter, hydrometer, spoon, airlock and grommet, tap, temperature strip and 30 bottles, as well as basic ingredients including an extract can and yeast. Just add water and you are on your way.
If you’re a more experienced brewer, we can help with expert advice on everything from which hops to use (we have over 60 kinds in stock), as well as combinations of grains and brew times for micro-breweries.
There are three key ingredients you need to make beer - yeast, hops and grain. Grains form the base of your beer. Hops add flavour and aroma. Yeast makes the fermentation magic happen, different yeasts give you different beer styles. Adjuncts and additives make your beer better.
