If you're looking for a delicious and easy way to brew ale at home, you've come to the right place.
Our collection includes some of the best home brew kits available, each designed to make the process of brewing your own real ale easy and convenient.
Brewing Ale at Home
Brewing ale is a process that involves using a top-fermenting yeast strain that thrives at warmer temperatures, resulting in a fruity, hoppy, and flavorful beer with a slightly sweet and sometimes bitter taste. Our beer brewing kits come with all the ingredients you need to make your own ale at home, including a tin of hopped malt extract and yeast. Some of the more premium kits also include additional malt extract and hops.
Craft Beer Kits
Craft beer enthusiasts will be pleased to know that our collection includes a variety of ale brew kits, each with its unique flavour and style. Popular options include Festival Old Suffolk Strong Ale, Woodfordes Nog, and Youngs American Amber Ale. Whether you prefer a strong ale, amber ale, dark ale, red ale, or brown ale, we have a beer brewing kit that will suit your taste buds.
Making Real Ale Easy
Each kit can make up to 40 pints or 23 litres of real ale, and they come with easy-to-follow instructions that guide beginners through the brewing process. To brew ale using a beer making kit, you will need some basic brewing equipment, including a fermenter, airlock, thermometer, and hydrometer. Once you have your equipment ready, simply pour the contents of the kit into your fermenter and mix with 2 litres of hot water to dissolve the ingredients. Top up with cold water to the desired amount (typically 23 litres), sprinkle on the yeast if the temperature is between 18-22°C, and let the fermentation process begin.
After around two weeks, your beer will be ready for bottling or kegging, and it's important to let it condition for a further two weeks. This will ensure that your ale has reached its full potential in terms of flavour, carbonation, and aroma. So why not give it a try and enjoy the satisfaction of brewing your own delicious, real ale at home with one of our beer brewing kits?
