These beer kits come in the latest foil pouch. Each pouch is cold filled using the latest nitrogen technology to provide the ultimate contamination-free products. The low temperature process retains the delicate flavours and aromas traditionally lost during the pasteurization of cans by prolonged heating and hot filling. Dry hopping is optional.
This is where it all started. Traditional malt extract beer kits are made from malted barley and hops. The barley is mixed with warm water which activates enzymes that converts the starches from the barley into a sugary malt liquid. This liquid is then condensed into a thick molasses-like syrup called malt extract and hop flavouring is added. You add hot water to reconstitute the syrup, top up with cold water and add yeast to start the fermentation. It's that simple!
