Each complete kit includes one equipment kit, one recipe pack of your choice, and 12 swing-top bottles.

The brewing equipment is all re-usable so you can brew again… and again!   Each batch makes 12 x 330ml bottles of fresh and delicious craft beer.

Equipment

Meet ‘Fermo’ our perfect container for brewing your small-batch all-grain beer. He is made of high quality food-grade plastic so is of course BPA-free. The best thing about Fermo is that he blocks light from ruining your fermenting beer. He also has a nice wide top so you don’t need to fiddle about with funnels. The best part is that he is super easy to clean. You’ll soon see why he is so much better than those clear glass demi-johns you get with other brewing systems.

Another very special character in the HomeBrewtique brewing process is our gorgeous brew-bag. She is made from a fine mesh voile which acts as a big tea-bag when you are making your brew. She eliminates the need for any sparging (rinsing) or slow filtering steps – making your brew day much easier and faster!

  • Fermo blocks light from your beer – no need to cover him up!
  • Fermo is outfitted with a dispensing tap, meaning you can bottle directly from your fermenter – no transferring needed!
  • The bottling wand keeps you from oxygenating your beer when you bottle and is much easier than using tubing to siphon like other systems out there.
  • Our brew-bag makes everything easier. She is re-usable and has an easy elasticated top to fit over your pot rim while brewing.

*You will need a large pot to make your beer – we recommend a 10L pot (which we sell individually) as our recipes are intended for use with a minimum of 9L capacity. You can select to add our quality stainless steel heavy-based pot into your homebrew starter kit or source your own.*

Recipe

A beer is only as good as its ingredients. If you’re going to spend the time to craft your own bespoke beer, it makes sense to start with the very best equipment and ingredients.

That’s why the kit comes with a recipe pack of the finest grains, all freshly milled by us just before shipping. We use top quality hops from around the world compressed into pellet form for easy handling and less liquid absorption. We then vacuum seal it all to ensure you receive the freshest possible ingredients.

The yeast we use in our recipe packs is a more important component of your beer than many people realise – it’s what really makes your beer! Different strains of yeast also contribute different flavours to a batch of beer. Our yeast is sourced from a special craft-beer yeast developer. Their range of premium dried yeast has been specifically designed for craft beer styles; ensuring consistent and flavourful results with every brew.

Our homebrew complete starter kit allows you to pick any of our recipes from the drop down box at the top. Check them out in more detail on our individual recipe pack pages or see the descriptions of each beer below:

IPAs

  • Single Hop IPA, 6.0%, using Mosaic hops – it is an easy drinking IPA with its balanced passionfruit and citrus flavours.
  • Multi Hop IPA, 5.7%, a blend of 6 hop varieties creating a powerful hop aroma punch but one that leaves your mouth happy – not too bitter a finish like some IPAs.
  • Imperial IPA, 8.0% a powerful Imperial IPA. 8.0% strong beer with a blend of 4 hop varieties.

Pale Ales

  • Australian Pale Ale, 4.8%, A lighter ale with grassy notes and a bite of grapefruit
  • Best Bitter, 4.4%.  A truly classic beer highlighting the British Noble Hops.
  • American Pale Ale, 5.3%. A slightly hoppier pale ale than an English bitter but not as hoppy as an IPA. Uses Magnum, Perle and Cascade hops.

Darker Ales

  • American Brown Ale, 5.0%, A nutty amber ale with hints of stone fruits
  • Sweet Milk Stout, 4.7%.  A rich and smooth stout which uses milk sugars for a touch of added sweetness.

Specialty

  • White Ale, 5.0%  A golden ale with a lighter body but a rich complexity from the orange peel and coriander seeds added during the brew.
  • California Common, 4.8%.  A nice amber ale with spicy / woodsy hop flavours inspired by Anchor Steam ale.
  • Irish Red Ale, 5.0%. A smooth ale with the classic rye sweetness balanced by the late hop additions adding modern american hop freshness.

 

Bottles

Our starter set includes a 12-pack of our 330ml swing-top bottles.

No capper is needed for these sleek swing-top bottles – that means one fewer step for you! It is all about efficiency. Why brown?  Because while there are prettier colours out there, brown (or amber as we prefer to call it) is the best colour to protect your beers from the harming rays of sunlight (beer’s ultimate enemy).

  • Amber bottles block light from ruining your aroma and oxidizing your beer
  • Re-useable caps mean less ‘stuff’ kicking around
  • No special capping (or opening) equipment needed, just flip it and you’re done!

We have given homebrewing a long over-due update for the modern consumer who expects high quality and is short on time and space. Our unique system bridges the wide gap between existing ‘beer kits’ (malt extract goo to which you simply add water and yeast and wait) and the established method for all-grain home brewing (the massive 40 pint, all sorts of expensive specialist equipment and loads of time needed to make real all-grain beer, process).

Now you can enjoy the creative fun of really making beer like a brewery, but easily in your kitchen. The flavour that the homebrew starter kit gives you at the end of the process is amazing – something that you can feel really proud of.

We’ve done the work so you don’t have to. Our brewing equipment has been tried and tested to ensure the easiest brew day for you – every process of traditional brewing has been assessed and simplified wherever possible. The homebrew complete starter kit has been designed to remove any unnecessary hassle – there’s not much equipment needed so it can fit with your existing life-style (no shed space required!). All the ingredients are pre-measured specific to each recipe to remove the guess work, save you time, and ensure more consistent results. Our instructions are complete and easy-to-follow to take the uncertainty out of doing your first all-grain brew.

Our website is full of additional information if you want to continue on and become a more knowledgeable brewer. We think a lot of the fun is with experimentation as you get more confident, and we will be developing more products and ingredients to help you on your way.

We love quality beer and want to make it more accessible to everyone, so there is no reason not to #GetYourBrewOn!
