What makes the Dark Rock Partial Mash range so special?
Most economy beer kits are supplied with 1.5kg of malt, or up to 1.8kg for standard kits. Many brewers now prefer to pay a little extra for boxed premium kits, which tend to include 3kg malt. The higher the malt content, the better the body and taste will be. You really do get what you pay for in this respect. Dark Rock Partial Mash kits contain a whopping 3.5kg of malt extract and that is without counting the malt grains! This puts them ahead of the pack in terms of malt content and gives the beer a massive quality advantage. Couple that with a really generous quantity of the freshest and best quality hops, and you have a beer which is pretty much impossible to beat without heading into all grain mashing territory. Even the most avid all grain aficionados supplement their stocks with Dark Rock Partial Mash beers. The reason they give is that the quality is right up there and the brewing time and complexities are greatly reduced.
