I must say at this early stage I am very impressed. This is my first ever kit beer that hasn't got that homebrew tang to it and that's straight out of the FV. I'll update when it's been in the bottle a few weeks.

I recommend 3 weeks to a month

the wherry is one of the better woodfords kits but id agree with what others have said dont mess with this kit
i did one with 500g of light spray malt added and it spoiled the flavor
its nicer standard

A stunning pint, just do what it says on the box, simples.

Bottling a wherry this weekend. Giving it 4 to 5 weeks before cracking the first one. Looking forward to this.

My Wherry is just over 6 weeks in the keg and it's a surprisingly good pint. I had severy pressure issues along the way too, which I thought would ruin it.

I've even had a couple of people taste it, to make sure I'm not using my rose-tinted specs, and they liked it too.

Half the barrel is gone already so I need to slow down before the next one is ready. Ordered St Peter's Golden Ale and Munton Gold Smuggler's Special.

I doubt it'll be many of these before the move to AG...

Last night i drank my last bottle of wherry I can't beleive its over, what a grand pint it was too! Oh well, will just have to brew another then!

I've said this before but what a lovely beer this kit makes, really well balanced and lots of flavours. Well done Woodfordes!

Just supped the last bottle fortunately I have another batch just coming out of the FV finished at 1006 again. unfortunately I have to wait 4 weeks before I can enjoy some more . A lovely mild pint very tasty and certainly worth the month before drinking. Just wished I had saved a couple of bottles to try after 6 months.
