What is it?

Festival Pilgrims Hope is a high-quality premium 3kg beer kit. Everything you need to brew a superb dark bitter ale is included in the box (except water). Festival Pilgrims Hope Dark Bitter provides complex flavours of tropical fruit and pine needles in abundance, big and malty with the perfect hop bitterness. The hops included in this kit are Target and Summit. This Festival beer kit provides a rich brown mahogany finish with a tan coloured head. 

A 50g sachet of hop pellets is included so that a stunning hop aroma is achieved. A nylon straining bag is also included, which fit over the end of your syphon sediment trap. This will prevent any hop sludge (referred to as trub) from transferring to bottles or barrels.  A 100g sachet of priming sugar is provided to ensure bottles or barrels are properly conditioned.

Hop bitterness of the Pilgrims Hope is 4.5 (on a scale of 1-5). The kit produces a target alcohol content of 5% ABV (approx)

The Festival Pilgrims Hope kit contains high-quality ingredients and easy to follow step-by-step instructions. Each kit makes 40 pints of premium ale 

Each Festival kit contains only the finest quality ingredients and easy to follow step-by-step instructions, making Festival Premium Ale Kits the UK's most comprehensive and complete premium liquid malt extract beer kit ever produced!

With careful research, help and knowledge from professional brewers, Festival Premium Ale Kits enable you to recreate examples of some of the UK's best-loved beers, all within the comfort of your own home. Festival Premium Ale Kits use only the very highest quality liquid malt extracts (3kg per kit) and genuine brewer's yeast strains (all individually suited to each style of beer). Festival Premium Ale Kits also contain hop pellets and priming sugar. The hop pellets are simply added halfway through fermentation infusing flavour and aroma into the finished beer resulting in a beer with more hop character than ever before. The precisely measured addition of priming sugar ensures (included) the correct level of carbonation is achieved for each particular style of beer.

We strongly recommend using Pure Brew with this kit in order to achieve a commercial quality. Pure Brew is a professional beer enhancer. It feeds the yeast with essential nutrients, which supercharge the fermentation and support yeast development (even in limited oxygen conditions). Pure Brew also treats brewing water to eliminate problems caused by Chlorine and Chloramine (which can create a medicinal or as it is sometimes referred to, a "homebrew" taste) The condition of brewing water is critical to achieving optimum results but this important area is often overlooked. By using Pure Brew, you can effectively and easily condition brewing water, and maximise effective fermentation. 

The addition of beer finings will improve the final quality of your beer. Finings such as Harris Beer Brite will help your beer to clear quickly and the sediment will be more likely to stay at the bottom of bottles or barrels. If you are using Corny Kegs then it is important to clear the beer as much as possible before kegging. Beer Finings will promote a faster and more efficient fall out of sediment and haze particles prior to kegging. Harris Starbrite is a highly effective vegan-friendly beer fining, which is rapidly becoming a firm favourite with home brewers.
