Stovetop Beer Kits

Our new range of stove top beer kits is made from locally sourced ingredients. They are a step up from regular beer kits (tins or pouches of wort concentrate) and they generally produce a better tasting beer. Brewing a stove top beer requires a sufficiently large pot (8-10 litres or so, a pressure cooker or pasta pot will do nicely) and for most beers you will also need a thermometer with a 0-100°C scale. A grain steeping bag is highly recommended. Brewing these beers involves making a wort from he malt extract included in the beer kit, boiling that wort with hops, cooling the wort and transferring it to the fermenter before topping it up with water and letting the beer ferment. But don't worry: a step-by-step manual is included, and brewing these beers is easy and fun. First in the range is an easily drinkable and affordable lager kit. More beers will be added to the range soon, including an American IPA, an Irish stout as well as amber, English and Belgian ales.
