These are more than just beer kits they are CONCENTRATED BREWERS WORTS. Production follows traditional brewhouse procedures using only the finest quality 2-row malting barley and the choicest English hops. The grist (crushed malt) is 'mashed' with water at 65°C for about one hour to convert the starches into sugar. The resultant liquid (wort) is strained off into a boiling vessel where hops are added for bitterness. After boiling, extra hops are added for flavour and aroma. In a commercial brewery the wort would be cooled rapidly to around 20°C, then transferred to a fermentation vessel where it is transformed into beer. As our worts are to be fermented at home, they first need to be reduced to a convenient size for the home beermaker to carry. To achieve this, the excess liquid is evaporated under vacuum, at low temperatures to preserve the delicate flavours, then pasteurised and canned. To continue the brewing process at home, all that is necessary is to dilute the concentrated wort back to its original density and ferment! Extra hops are included to restore aroma lost during production.
Included in the box are some advanced instructions for those who like to experiment. Subtle flavour differences can be achieved by adopting a few advanced techniques e.g. bitterness adjustment, sweetness, colour etc.
Almondberry Old, 40 pints, 4% - 4.3%: Traditional Old Ale, a style which has enjoyed a renaissance among the new breed of micro brewers. It is a rich tawny ale with a subtle roasted malt flavour and a distinct hop character in the style of the Old Ales' of fifty years ago, darker and richer than a Bitter but lighter and hoppier than a Brown Ale or Porter. This beer style has a wide appeal, especially with younger drinkers.
Birkby Bitter 40 pints 4% - 4.3%: Brupaks’ entrant in the session beer category. Less hoppy and slightly sweeter than Colne Valley Bitter, it has just the right balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness to keep you wanting more.
Colne Valley Bitter 40 pints 4% - 4.3%: True classic in the tradition of full flavoured English Bitters. With the emphasis on hop flavour rather than bitterness, and its perfect blend of malts, this beer with satisfy the most discerning of real ale enthusiasts.
Kirkburton Ale 24 pints 7% - 7.5%: Intended to appeal to the brewer who is looking for something a bit special. It is a rich, malty strong ale of immense character which is at its best when bottled. Its heart warming properties make Kirkburton Ale the perfect after dinner beer.
Linthwaite Light 40 pints, 5.5%: Designed for those who prefer a light, refreshing beer which is neither bitter nor sweet. The combination of its delicate flavour and its beguiling appearance will prove irresistible. Linthwaite Light will also make a delicious lager if cold fermented with a lager yeast.
Scammonden Dark 40 pints 4% - 4.3%: Rich, dark ale in the style of a Porter. Its blend of pale, crystal and roasted malts, together with subtle hop additions, afford this beer a great complexity of flavour. It has great character and will appeal to those who prefer their beers to be assertive.
Black Moor Stout 40 pints 4% - 4.3%: Dark ale in the traditional Irish style. It has a strong, roasted barley flavour and a distinct hop bitterness.
Honley Mild 40 pints 4% - 4.3%: Traditional English mild ale. Dark, soft and lightly hopped. Very refreshing and ideal for any time of year.
West Riding Wheat 40 pints 4% - 4.3%: Bavarian style wheat beer with a very soft palate and a delicate hop character. The ideal alternative to lager on a warm day.
Fixby Gold 40 pints 4% - 4.3%: Beautiful golden ale with a distinctive hop and grain character. It works well as a draught ale but is even better when bottled and allowed to age for at least 2 months.
India Pale Ale (IPA) 35 pints 4.6% - 5%: True classic. in the time of the British Raj very strong pale ales were sent to India by sea. These ales were very high in both alcohol and hops to preserve them on their long sea journey. Generally they would be diluted to a more 'quaffable' alcohol level before drinking in India. This is our interpretation of how a true IPA would have tasted. Brews 20 litres (35 pints).
