HBS Beer Kits

The HomeBrewShop offers beer kits for three levels of experience:-

Concentrate Kits - A good way to start brewing your own beer is to buy a beer concentrate kit. Concentrate kits provide a quick and easy method of making very palatable beer, in a relatively short space of time. The quality of these kits has improved over the years and even the cheaper kits will produce a very decent pint of beer. Only minimal equipment is required to start brewing from beer kits and this equipment can be retained for use should you decide to move on to malt extract or full mash brewing.

Malt Extract Kits - The next step up the quality/complexity ladder is to use a malt extract kit to brew your beer. This technique requires a little more experience and gives you a little more control over the finished product. The resulting beers are generally of a higher quality than those made with the basic concentrate kits. The only extra equipment required is a large boiler (around 5 gallons) for boiling the ingredients.

Full Mash Kits - So you've brewed the beer kits and used malt extract to make beer, now you're looking for that quality beer and maximum control over the finished results. It's time to try the full mash kit. The full mash process is not unlike the process utilised by commercial breweries, but just on a smaller scale. Here we take the raw ingredients of malted barley and hops (amongst other things) to produce a pint that should rival any served in the real ale pubs of Britain. Further equipment is required here including a mash tun. Serious brewers can take over a whole room or garage with wort coolers and the like, but you can make a good start with our full mash kit.
