Geterbrewed have been driven to push the boundaries of what can be achieved in homebrewing, we have been championing a homebrew revolution and achieved results by providing only the best homebrewing equipment and the freshest ingredients always looking for innovative technology and new products to allow homebrewers to create impressive brews that makes them return to us time and time again for their homebrew beer kits.
So…the basic beer kit has been a challenge to educate homebrewers on what is possible. We have designed our own range of beer kits using the finest liquid malt extract, isomerised hop extract, brewers’ strains of yeasts and innovative hop tea bag technology.
The premium quality Liquid malt that provides such a pure malt flavour, plus its an all malt beer kit
Isomerised Hop Extract allows us to fine turn the bitterness level of the beer kit
The Brewers Strains of yeast, ultra premium yeast chosen specifically for the style of beer
Hop Tea Bag Technology – The freshest hop pellets in innovative tea bags that allow maximum diffusion of the hop flavour and aroma. Plus we get to use hop varieties not normally used in beer kits
Geterbrewed are pleased to announce some new beer kits being added to the experimental beer kit range:
1. Kviek Beer Kit with Eclipse dry hop
Ferment at High temperatures with super quick turnaround times, the Premium Lallemand Voss Kviek yeast leaves a subtle orange flavour in the finished beer and the dry hop of eclipse leaves a sweet juicy mandarina flavour and aroma for this Kviek Beer Kit.
2. Philly Sour Beer Kit with Nelson Sauvin Dry Hop
For our Philly Sour Beer Kit, a special yeast (Lachancea SPP) is used to produce a sour beer with refreshing acidity and notes of stone fruit, the yeast produces moderate amounts of lactic acid during primary fermentation to sour the beer.
Homebrewing Beer can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it.
It can be said that in the home brew industry you have 3 options or different types of homebrew beer kits
Isomerised Beer Kits (usually pouches or cans)
Extract Beer Kits ( Partial Mash Kits)
All Grain Brewing ( brewing from scratch )
Modern day homebrew beer kits and equipment can allow you to not only be frugal but you can brew better beer than shop bought. If you are a craftbeer fan you can attempt to clone your favourite beer or be adventurous and create some truly unique beer.
If you decide to start homebrewing beer and you choose to start with a basic homebrew beer kit the equipment will always be useful for all levels of brewing beer. If you try a isomerised beer kit you can still create great beers. An isomerised extract kit is usually a pouch or can of liquid malt that has isomerised hop solution in it. You are basically rehydrating the liquid malt extract and adding the yeast and fermenting the beer. Some modern beer kits also have dry hop additions that you add directly to the fermenter this creates a nice hoppy aroma.
Extract brewing also includes brewing with liquid malt but it’s a little more hands on and you need a little more equipment but household pots etc can be used to help you create a wort with steeping grains. This steeping grain or quantity of malt will bring more freshness and body to the beer. Once you create the wort by adding the steeping grains (grains/malt in a muslin/nylon bag) to warm water you add the liquid malt. The steeping grains are added to warm water in extract brewing for e.g. 67 degrees as it converts the starches in the malt to fermentable sugars which is also known as sugary wort. The lower mashing temperatures with steeping grains will create a dryer beer and higher temperatures of say 69 will produce a sweeter beer.
All Grain Brewing is brewing from scratch using water, malt, hops and yeast. I’m a massive fan of all grain brewing it creates really impressive craft beers and allows you to really immerse yourself in the hobby, the process of all grain brewing is the longest to produce with a brewday taking around 5 hours. It’s a great way to spend a day though and the results are worth it. You can buy all grain recipe kits with instructions that have the beer style and ingredients all worked out for you or you can design your own recipes from scratch
What is critical to successful brewing of beer no matter what type of beer kit you choose is cleanliness and temperature control.
Having all equipment sterilized and maintaining a constant fermentation temperature for the yeast will make for the best brewed beer.
If you need any help at all selecting a homebrew starter kit we are happy to help, we aim to be beginner friendly and remember that we want you to brew beer consistently and successfully so you return to brew more beer time and time again
The simplest way of making beer from kits can sometimes be unnecessarily disappointing, at Geterbrewed we value our customers and we want them to brew successfully and be impressed with their batches of homebrew. Too many suppliers are selling beer kits that aren’t suitable and they don’t give support to help people brew successfully, it isn’t like homebrewing in the 70’s you can now make really impressive batches of beer at home with ease that can easily surpass the quality of shop bought beer at a fraction of the price.
A short time ago we did a beer kit review and removed some brands that we felt just weren’t of a high enough quality. To drive forward our passion to have folk making the best possible homebrew we have a unique customised beer kit service that allows you to design your own beer kit, the quality of this is unrivalled and we know you can brew really impressive beer with this, so we have taken this service and designed some really high end tried and tested beer kits.
