That’s why we’ve put together the Kitchen Brewer range. Featuring great recipes that come from our most popular bigger recipe kits and all the equipment you will need to make great tasting beer at home, using all grain, just like the pros. All these beer kits have been prepared and developed to work with the common method for stove top brewing, brew in the bag. The grain is crushed slightly finer to allow for maximum efficiency when mashing.
