What Makes The Dark Rock All-Grain Range So Special?

Dark Rock Brewing’s All-Grain Beer Kits provide everything you need to make a superb ale.  All-grain brewing is a rewarding process, which puts you in full control of your brewing. It takes a little longer than making a standard beer kit or partial mash but the results are absolutely stunning. All-grain mash brewing is great fun and really allows you to develop the necessary skills to master your craft. Each kit utilizes commercial-quality malt and hops, emphasizing freshness in the brewing process.

Dark Rock’s all-grain Mash Kits represent fantastic value too. We have meticulously researched and perfected each recipe to ensure it delivers the best possible taste. You only buy the exact amount of ingredients you need so there is no waste. Unlike making up your own recipe you will not have leftover quantities.

With all-grain brewing, it is important not to keep stocks of grains and particularly hops at home for long periods. The quality deteriorates quickly. Therefore, it does not make sense to buy larger quantities of grains and hops than you need. We weigh Dark Rock All-Grain Kits to the exact quantities required for each brew, ensuring the freshest ingredients and excellent value. We store hops in temperature-controlled rooms and vacuum-pack them immediately upon opening. This ensures the optimum quality of your brew.

What Equipment Do You Need?

Basic beer-making equipment (5g fermenter, airlock, syphon tube with sediment trap, hydrometer, Suresan sanitizer, bottles or barrel). These are available under the starter kit section on this website. You will also need specialist equipment to make all-grain beers. The process involves three stages. The first stage is mashing. Your mash equipment will need to maintain the grains and water at a constant temperature for an hour (usually 66C). This is important as only slight temperature variations can affect the taste of the final beer. The second part of the process is sparging. This involves rinsing the grains with water slightly hotter than the mash (77C). Finally, the wort will need to be boiled for around 70 minutes and then cooled to fermentation temperature as fast as possible.

From this point, the fermentation process is similar to standard kits.  There are numerous techniques equipment styles that can be used to make full-mash beers. In the past, the most basic method used was a floating mash tun and insulated ice box. Alternatively, a Pico-style Electrim Bin was used. Whilst these are still available, there are now easy-to-use all-grain brewing systems available. The initial cost is higher but these systems are superb and allow you to achieve bang-on results every time. They also cut down the time that you have to be present during the process.

All grain systems are so effective that most commercial breweries use them for testing experimental recipes prior to full-blown scale-ups. The Grainfather brewing system is highly recommended. The system can be expanded as your skills develop, to include conical temperature-controlled fermenters, sparge water heaters, and even an integrated Glycol Chiller to ensure precise temperatures down to 4 degrees centigrade (useful for lager production and summer brewing). A wide range of all-grain brewing equipment is available on our website and we are always available to offer advice.

Tips

Harris Pure Brew - 5 DoseA sachet of Pure Brew is included 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 maximize effective fermentation.

We strongly recommend using Pure Brew with all of your beers to improve their quality.

You could consider investing in a metal hop spider to effectively manage hop additions into the boiling process. The hop spider would sit inside your boiler and allow you to drop hops into the boil in a controlled way. Hop Spiders allow hops to boil with more free-flow space around them. They are easily cleaned and can be reused over and over again. They also prevent hop sediment (known as trub) from clogging up pumping systems when using all-in-one brewing equipment.

First tried this as a complimentary bottle when dropping into the shop. This was our first mistake. Second was drinking said bottle. Third was purchasing the kit!! WOW. How good is this. Topping my favourite list. Lovely bitter finish. Loads of flavours going on as the temperature changes. A really amazing beer. My new favourite. Numerous mistakes now as we keep repurchasing.

Excellent aroma and taste. Very like the well known brand. Slightly more hazy than the brand version though.

I wish I could upload a picture of this finished brew side by side with the major well know tipple. I can’t tell you how good it turned out, it looks the same, has the same clarity, same head and retention, it smells the same and more importantly, it tastes the same! Well done Dark Rock you have produced an amazing kit!

For anyone who loves this style of beer, it’s a no brainer, give it a go and be as amazed as I am.
