Description

Geordie Mild

Geordie MildGeordie Mild is a dark mild with traditional, fuller Northern taste. Made from natural ingredients – malt, hops and barley – it has a smooth head and a rich deep dark colour. It’s satisfying to drink and just as satisfying to make.

This is a 1.5 kg beer kit made from malt extract, barley syrup and hops.

ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS REQUIRED to make Geordie Mild:

To make this kit, you will either need 1Kg Brewing Sugar or 1Kg Dark Beer Kit Enhancer (Preferred). Later, you will also need sugar or carbonation drops to prime the keg or bottles for the secondary fermentation. We also advise using finings like Starbrite to ensure your lager clears quickly and the sediment sticks to the bottom on the bottle or keg.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU NEED?

Basic beer making equipment (5g fermenter, airlock, syphon tube with sediment trap, hydrometer, Suresan sanitiser, bottles or barrel). These are available under the starter kit section on this website.

TIPS

Harris Pure Brew - 5 DoseTo achieve a commercial quality, we strongly recommend using Pure Brew with this kit. 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). Additionally, Pure Brew treats brewing water, eliminating problems caused by Chlorine and Chloramine, which can create a medicinal or, as it is sometimes referred to, a “homebrew” taste. While achieving optimum results in brewing critically relies on the condition of brewing water, 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. Harris Beer Brite finings, for example, will aid in the quick clarification of your beer, with the sediment more likely to remain at the bottom of bottles or barrels. For those using Corny Kegs, it is crucial to clear the beer as much as possible before kegging. Beer finings will promote a faster and more efficient settling 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.

Geordie Mild is an excellent low gravity beer with good condition, head and body that clears quickly in the bottle. It is great value for money if you’re looking for a pleasant dry mild with a low bitterness rate, but not overly sweet (as some ales of this genre can be). I usually brew it with 500 grams of medium Spraymalt and 500 grams of sugar – demarara or soft brown sugar produces a better flavour than bog-standard white sugar.
