Didn't feel it though
I have never seen cwtch at 10%

I agree,it's funny how we will pay four quid a pint in a pub but spread across 46 bottles its nowt.
All premium kits are still "ten Bob " a pint or less

Yep I do. one of my favorite extract kits is JB porter. £11 + a fiver for malt/sugar and I get 40 pints from it. I got the cwtch for £24 which makes 36 pints. so the porter is made for 40p a pint and this new brew is made for 67pp equating to approx. 40% price difference.

I am happy to pay the difference if the quality is there but there are some two can kits which I have found to be not that great.

each to their own

I've recently brewed this and it tastes great. No famous home brew twang and really good body.

It comes with 116g of hop pellets (citra and Columbus if I remember) making it really good value for the money, you don't get that flavour out of extract alone.

There are a few exceptions, Brewferm not bad but almost all kits require hops IMO
And thats where it jumps a bit, pellets are far superior for me and they cost a bit.
Never tried the porter though.

Be careful when bottling
I added the spray malt to my bottling bucket before bottling but it just clumped together like glue. So unsure if my bottles are going to be carbonated as the last 4 bottles were sludgy
Could have 4 nuclear carbonated bottles

Mine ended up in a Corny Keg and I force carbonated it for about 4 days. Tastes superb.

That's why you should dissolve it in a pan of boiling water/wort.

Haven't posted on here in ages. Back in the spring I found I had 400 bottle of beer....and SHMBO had a word!

Last 5 brews have been AG, but new job means time is precious, hence looking for a kit.

Recently up in Darlington, visited the legendary Hop and Grape + came away with Cwtch.

Really impressed with the kit, a bit of a game changer to include real hops.

Got the brew on in 45 minutes (used Aldi spring water). Good to be back brewing, even if it is a kit.

Cheers

Martin
