Woodfordes Wherry Bitter Kit

Woodfordes Wherry BitterWoodfordes Wherry bitter has an inviting aroma of malt and citrus fruit. The palate is crisp and citrussy with malt and fine hop notes introducing an interesting complexity to this thirst quenching favourite. The hoppy grapefruit flavour adds the perfect unique bitter finish.

Woodforde’s top-quality beer kits, developed in collaboration with the Woodforde’s brewery, faithfully replicate the individual character of their commercial beers using the original grist formulation. 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. Woodforde’s enjoys an exceptional reputation, recognized for outstanding quality and flavours in their products. Regional variations in water quality may have a subtle influence on the taste of the final brew.

The Woodfordes Wherry has won awards such as Supreme Champion Beer of Britain (Bronze) in 2005 and Supreme Champion Beer of Britain (Gold) in 1996.


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 to make the Woodfordes Wherry kit?

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.
