HBS Beer Kits
The HomeBrewShop offers beer kits for three levels of
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.
