Malt Extract Beer Kits
Malt extract brewing is an easy way to brew delicious beers without the need for expensive equipment or advanced skills. They are perfect for beginners, intermediates, or for advanced brewers who wish to build up their stocks quickly. Kits contain hopped malt extract in varying quantities from 1.5kg to 3kg. 1.5kg -1.8kg kits usually require an additional 1kg sugar to brew beer of around 4.5% abv. Brewing sugar (Dextrose Monohydrate) will produce a better result than household sugar. For the best result we recommend using 1kg Beer Enhancer (a blend of malt extract and brewing sugar). 3kg kits will not require sugar or beer enhancer (unless you wish to increase the abv). Some kits will also include a sachet of dry hops which are added to the fermenter during the last 2 days of fermentation. Dry hops will add an extra hoppy flavour and aroma to the final drink. We also recommend adding a measure of Pure Brew and Beer Finings to ensure a clear, clean, commercial quality beer is produced. Malt Extract Beer Kits take around 30 minutes to make and up to ten days to ferment. They should be ready to drink within a month (if beer finings are used).
