Quick update, the yeast has dropped now so I've just added the hop pellets in around half a litre of water at 80 degree. I let them steep for around half an hour.
I also tested the fg, unbelievably low 1.004! I can' t believe the measurement , I did wait for it to warm up to 20 from 17. I drank the sample and it was dry and tasted very alcoholic, not sure if it will be too strong for my taste. Doing the maths it' s finished at around 10 per cent.
I've left it in the garage to hopefully clear a bit before I bottle on Saturday.

It's nice to see what's in these kits I have been fancying them for a little.

Another one who will be watching this thread to see the results.

I too bought this kit on Saturday as a Christmas present from My missus (very nice of her i thought!)

Speaking with the guy in LHBS he said he'd only got them in this morning and had already sold 2 (the shelf was half empty so im inclined to believe him. I didn't think I should hang around @ £24 The Kit is much more than Id usually spend but taking into account the ABV and all ingredients in the box thought worth a go for xmas.

Think I might actually brew this kit a bit long (24ltres) which makes a change as I often brew short, (21ltres) but would rather have a few more pints at 6% than 9% based on your SG readings.

I eagerly await how you get on. If I were you I would be sampling a bottle on friday the 20th.

(Sadly I will not get to start mine until after Christmas as it has been confiscated for wrapping)

I have just kegged this with 150g of priming sugar. I added the 2 hop 'teabags' 2 days before kegging as I am a big fan of fresh hopped beers. I'm hoping to open it on Christmas eve even though it will be cloudier than a day in Bridlington.

The only concern I have is that the OG was about 1.050 and the FG was about 1.010 yet it claims to be an ABV of 7.1% ??

I brewed this kit recently. Is still in the FV with hops waiting to be bottled. I've got some Allkleer finings from the local brewery to mix in before bottling as it looks a little cloudy and I want to drink it pretty soon. The OG was .072 and its now dropped to .010 so I'm happy with that... roughly 8.1 ABV.

Will let you know how it tastes! I've not sampled yet.....resisting!

Have sampled some of this my LHBS made it soon as he got it, and its been kegged for samples, in his shop, still bit fresh but coming out at 8.2%

First sip was nice and hoppy, and could not taste the ABV could get you into problems as it does not taste a strong brew.

Loving my first taste but only had a third as was driving.....I have both these Kits the 4 Fingers and Evil Dog, they will be put on after xmas
