To make this kit, you will either need 1Kg Brewing Sugar or 1Kg Pale 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.


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.


Harris Pure Brew - 5 DoseWe 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). 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. Achieving optimum results in brewing critically depends on the condition of brewing water, 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.

Quite fruity (think peach and passion fruit) and powerfully hopped, bitter finish. Great taste for a kit. Took a long while to clear. Better with some time around 4-6 weeks after bottling but after seems to have lost some flavour. Brewed with the mangrove jack enhancer as recommended

Big fan of Mangrove Jack’s and I’d say this is my favourite even topping the grapefruit IPA. Fermentation is pretty lively- first brew where I’ve had krausen in the airlock.

Added a little extra sugar so it’s come out at just over 5%. Can smell and taste the fruit but it’s not too overpowering. Perfect drink for spring and summer

Sounds great on the tin, smells great when you open it, it’s beer to foam out over the blow valve, mad a mess, made my brew shed smell incredible and was so looking forward to it.

After putting it in keg and letting it settle I poured a pint, it’s not the best smells loverly but struggle to drink two, I am a huge ipa drinker and lover the citrus, this is the first poor mangrove pack I have had, would not buy again.

If you like fruity you will like this. Smells and tastes lovely and I’m told it improves with longer conditioning.

Smells and tastes deliciously fruity and smooth. Hop taste is mellow. Was very lively while fermenting and has kept good pressure in barrel, despite frequency of drawing off (I don’t bottle my brews). My favourite extract kit to date, wife loves it too.
