Brupaks Brewer's Choice Dried Ingredients Beer Kits


Brewpaks Brewer's Choice are unique beer kits in that they are the first dried ingredient kits that do not require boiling.   The kits are comprised of first-grade, spay-dried malt extract, freshly crushed grains, pre-isomerised hop pellets and genuine brewer's yeast.   As the hops have already been isomerised (alpha acids, the bittering substances in hops, are insoluble until they have been boiled for at least 20 minutes) all that is necessary to release their bitterness and flavour is to steep them in hot water for a few minutes.
The Brewer's Choice range covers many of the world's major styles of beer and are both fun and rewarding to brew.   They are highly recommended for those wanting to get a bit more involved in the brewing process.

The "creme de le creme" of the brewers choice ales.   This kit is complete - it requires no additional liquid or spray dried malt to achieve its design flavour, texture and strength.   It is a great tasting, well balanced bitter with just the right maltiness balanced by a gratifying hoppiness.
