    Mr Beer - Bewitched Amber Ale

    This morning I've brewed the Bewitched Amber Ale kit from Mr Brew which I picked up from my favourite supplier, Brew2Bottle in Lancashire. It is a 9-litre kit, which I didn't realise when ordering, so I've increased the volume to 13.5 litres by adding 500g of Munton's Extra Light Spray Malt...

    Mangrove Jack's Australian Brewers Series - Gold Lager

    Getting ahead of myself given the rubbish weather today so thought I'd brew 40 pints of Mangrove Jack's Australian Brewers Series Gold Lager with a view to bottling it at the end of the month all ready for drinking in the late-spring/early-summer. The kit was simple to brew and the malt extract...

    Black Rock - Nut Brown Ale

    Last week I bottled 23 litres of Black Rock's Nut Brown Ale in 500ml PET bottles after a fairly faultless fermentation. I brewed-up on 15/02/21 with the single-can kit and 1kg of Young's Beer Enhancer with an O.G of 1.040 and on 04/03/21 the fermentation had ended and F.G was 1.008 giving a...

    Black Rock Mai Bock

    Today I’ve started a 1.7kg Black Rock beer in the fermentation vessel called Mai Bock although when I bought it I didn’t realise it was a two-can kit so I have decided to play around with it... I’ve brewed to 16 litres with the malt extract kit, above. To it I have added 1kg of glucose sugar...

    My current homebrew in the fermentation vessel is 16 litres of Wilko's Winter Ale, brewed on 12/12/20 with an O.G. of 1.058 as per the two-can kit's instructions. Target final gravity is below 1.014 according to the leaflet. The fermentation vessel is in our utility room and so to keep a...

    Geordie Winter Warmer

    I have just kegged 22 litres of Geordie Winter Warmer, a beer kit I found in Wilkos a month ago at a bargain price as I wanted to keep a bitter-type beer readily accessible in the keg during the colder months. I started the brew on 10/10/20 with 1kg of Beer Enhancer and took the original...

    MasterPint Czech Pilsner

    I’ve currently got a MasterPint Czech Pilsner brewing away in the corner of the kitchen as my collection of empty PET bottles needs refilling with beer! I brewed 23 litres on 24/10/20 with 1kg of brewing sugar to give an original gravity of 1036. With a target gravity of around 1009 this should...

    Brewferm Belgian Brown

    Yesterday I brewed the Belgian Brown kit from Brewferm very easily now my experience is growing. In the fermentation bucket I added the kit along with 1kg of dextrose sugar and made it up to the 15 litres that this kit is designed to make. I found the instruction leaflet particularly useful and...

    Young's Harvest Scottish Heavy

    As my pressure barrel is about to become empty from a previous brew, I thought it time to get brewing my next kit - Young's Harvest Scottish Heavy. I wanted to brew a bitter/ale following comments that they are better suited to a pressure barrel for secondary fermentation than a lager as I...

    Home Brew Kit in the Style of Singha Thai Beer

    Hi all, I was reminiscing about a VIP hospitality day I enjoyed a few years ago at Old Trafford watching the football. Whilst the game was dull, the free beer was top notch and I particularly enjoyed a *lot* of free Singha Thai lager. So... can anyone recommend a home brew kit that is similar...

    Coopers Mexican Cerveza

    After bottling my Black Rock Oatmeal Stout this afternoon I cleaned all my kit and got on the next kit in my homebrew store... the renowned Coopers Mexican Cerveza. I used a single can with 1kg of brewing sugar, brewed short to 22 litres. I pitched the yeast at 24degC and took an OG reading of...

    Black Rock Oatmeal Stout

    Today I have brewed my third ever home brew... a single can of the two-can Black Rock Oatmeal Stout (my own fault - should have bought two cans but didn’t realise). To compensate for the second can I have used 1kg liquid light malt extract and 1kg brewing sugar (beer enhancer) on the advice of...
