Description

Woodfordes Nog

Woodfordes NogWoodfordes Norfolk Nog was the winner of the 2009 World Beer Award’s “World’s Best Old Ale”. Norfolk Nog is full of a roast malt bitter character which dominates the nose and palate and contributes to a long dry finish. Hints of fruit, rich caramel and malt add satisfying complexity to this beautiful dark porter ale.

Woodfordes top quality beer kits have been developed in conjunction with the Woodfordes brewery using their original grist formulation to accurately emulate the individual character of the Woodfordes commercial beers. Woodfordes has grown from a small scale brewery to become one of the largest and most respected new cask ale brewers who started up in the early 1980’s. This was when beer drinkers finally began to steer away from the relentless blandness of the larger brewers products.

Pioneers firstly turned to home brewing and secondly to commercial production of their original recipes. Woodfordes has an exceptional reputation and is recognised for their outstanding quality and flavours. Regional variations in water quality may have a subtle influence on the taste of the final brew.

DO YOU NEED ANY OTHER INGREDIENTS?

This is an all malt beer kit, and you do not need any additional sugar or beer kit enhancer to make the kit. However, you will need some sugar or carbonation drops to prime the bottles or keg for a secondary fermentation.

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 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.

For additional flavour why not try adding our chocolate nibs to give your dark porter ale a unique chocolate aroma. The chocolate nibs can be found on our websited under the ‘Dried Ingredients’ section.
