A rich creamy stout, with subtle chocolate flavours and a complex malty aftertaste, provided by Roasted Barley, Chocolate Malt, and Cocoa Nibs. Lactose gives the beer a rounded sweetness (as it cannot be fermented by a beer yeast). Challenger and Goldings hops provide the subtle background bitterness. The overall result is a wonderfully rich and fruity, creamy sweet stout, with chocolate flavours and malty aromas. A delicious specialist ale.

Bohemian Series

This range is quirky and experimental. It mirrors the current commercial craft beer trend for creating off the wall styles and flavours that do not conform to traditional standards. The range includes special limited editions in order to keep things lively and interesting. All kits have been thoroughly researched and pilot tested by selected customer prior to being launched. Expect some explosive strengths, small batch quantities, and wacky flavour editions that shouldn't work, but do! Have fun with the Bohemian range and release the "Hipster" in you!

What Makes Dark Rock Part Grain Kits So Special?

Part grain beer kits are an excellent way to take your brewing to the next level. Brewing takes a little longer using this method, but the results are well worth it. With our friendly expert guidance, these kits are suitable for beginners as well as more experienced brewers. All you need extra is a pan and a thermometer. By adding a 'mini-mash' to the malt extract brewing technique, using different varieties of malt and hops, you can create more complex flavoursome beers according to your taste.

Dark Rock provides the ultimate range of part grain kits. Our expert knowledge of brewing combined with sourcing only the finest quality ingredients means Dark Rock part grain kits will enable you to brew exceptional beer that will rival any you can buy in pubs and shops. 

Dark Rock kits combine a whopping 3.5kg of the finest quality malt extract with a blend of premium malt grains and hops sourced by us from around the world. We believe our kits are the best on the market and feedback from our many satisfied customers' backs this up.

All ingredients are bought and stored fresh and weighed into individual bags. Our hops are vacuum packed in nitrogen-flushed foil bags to produce the maximum flavour and aromas.

Whatever your brewing experience, a part grain kit is a great choice and requires minimal investment in equipment. With such a wide range of beer styles to choose from, there is sure to be a beer for you, whether it is a tropical pale ale, a rich stout, or a refreshing pilsner.

Tips

A sachet of Pure Brew is included with this kit 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 maximise effective fermentation. We strongly recommend using Pure Brew with all of your beers to improve their quality.

The addition of beer finings will improve the final quality of your beers. Starbrite finings is included with this kit. They 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 before kegging. Harris Starbrite is a highly effective vegan-friendly beer fining, which is rapidly becoming a firm favourite with craft brewers. It is suitable for all beers.

A muslin grain bag is included with this kit. You could consider investing in a metal hop spider to upgrade your equipment. The hop spider would sit inside your boiling pan and allow you to drop hops into the pan 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.

Each Dark Rock kit is carefully researched and developed by commercial brewers with extensive knowledge and a passion for craft beers and real ales. New styles are always pilot tested by craft brewers before being released into the market. Dark Rock Kits enable you to produce commercial quality beers, all within the comfort of your own home. Malts and hops are added at controlled stages of the brewing process to provide rich aromas and depths of flavour, which are simply not possible from standard hopped malt extract kits. This is the reason many brewers are moving from malt extract kits to part grain kits. It is difficult to distinguish Dark Rock part grain beers from all grain ales, and the brewing process is much faster and less complicated.
