    Very nice beer
    Review by Shaunon 06/10/2017
    This was my first venture into extract kits but the beer was kegged and served in a draft system and it's very nice indeed. It's around 3 months old or thereabouts

    I would most certainly make this again, it's quiet strong (i don't bother measuring as it is what it is!) but it's like a pale also with loads of body and very drinkable. Well until you start talking funny!

    I've mainly made the Festival kits so far, and although I will probably continue with those as they are excellent, this was a nice venture into extract and I would definitely make it again.

    Perfect pint. Recommend.
    Review by Steveon 01/07/2017
    This was a beautiful ale from the start, all went exactly as per instructions. After only 2 weeks in the barrel was clear and very drinkable. Only issue was I was drinking it during a very hot spell and having no where that was cool I was having to fill plastic lemonade bottles and stand them in the fridge to bring the temperature down, causing a chill haze but still tasting beautiful.

    Very good but doesn't keep
    Review by Adolfoon 13/09/2016
    Very good brew, the final product was a very good IPA, not quite Proper Job, but many in a blind taste said this was better. Brewed with the Thams Valley yeast and uUnfortuantely it didn't keep well for long, developing a strong yeast flavor after 8 weeks. Recommend to keep in a cold place all the time.

    So similar to the real thing
    Review by Damian/Brannbrewon 04/07/2016
    Received this as a birthday present, but its so good I needed to write a review of it. Brew Day went so easy with all the instructions clear and easy to follow. Let it ferment for 10 days, kegged 10L and used 12 bottles (6 of which are 660ml bottles).
    Took the keg to a party on the weekend and it was an instant hit, 18 pints all went. With my own strong positive opinions of the Real Proper Job, comparing this to the last bottle I drunk it tasted so similar if I bought and drunk 1 of mine side by side I probably wouldn't tell the difference. Would I do this again, certainly if I wanted a well balanced beer, I usually now like more of a Punk IPA style beer but always like to go back to an old favorite.

    Hoppy, balanced, and strong - perfect for the summer
    Review by Richardon 03/06/2016
    First time making this extract recipe, slightly more complicated hop schedule than I'm used to, but the instructions were easy to follow, as always. Was a little concerned that the initial gravity was lower than suggested, but final gravity was also, and it still hit 5.5 % ABV. Beautiful light amber colour, which is surprising as the only malt is light DME. Two weeks in primary FV at 20-22C, then two weeks in the bottle, and it's excellent. I tried it after 1 week after bottling, and it was too sweet, which diminished hop-bitter finish. A further week, and the extra carbonation (I bottle some in PET bottles to feel the pressure) is apparent, the beer is crystal clear, and the sweetness lessened, promoting a balanced aroma and crisp citrus edge, and the light astringency familiar to fans of Proper Job. Not sure I can I leave it for a further week or two, it's too good already! Can't fault it. Enjoy your new extract recipe pack!

    Tasty, a right 'Proper Job'
    Review by Alanon 01/05/2016
    My first home brew not using a tin and it's pretty good.
    Has a strong taste, but I think I know where I went wrong, not enough topped up water in the FV.
    Anyway that aside the bottles are really tasty, so much so, it's probably the best home brew I've made. nice and hoppy as it should be. Going to order it again, and get it on soon.

    Refreshing citrus hop
    Review by Peter Kon 20/04/2016
    Second time I have made this and it is a splendid, first class, hoppy pint, bounding with citrus notes and best suited to serving cold on those warmer days. I have barreled this one for my favourite niece but for quality assurance purposes have had a sneaky 'first' pint before delivery (brewer's perk?). Can I justify doing another taste check? Not really (because it's superb) but I just may have to have one more pint before it goes.........

    First extract kit
    Review by Andyon 09/04/2016
    Easy to prepare, massively exceeded available headroom in the fermenter but calmed down quickly. Turned out pretty well, but was a little too bitter compared to the original after it'd had a couple of weeks to develop post-clearing.

    Gets better with time
    Review by David Bon 13/01/2016
    The longer this is left in the bottle the better it gets. I started drinking this after about 10 days in the bottle. And thought it was OK. But after a further 2 weeks it was magnificent! Really nice hoppy aroma and taste, and more bitter than WTA.

    If there is a negative point, it's the yeast pack. The one I selected was the type where you hit the pouch to break the internal seal. It didn't work (the pouch didn't expand), and I manual had to cut it open, mix the contents and then add. Even so, I still go t a Bloody good brew.

    Very happy!

    Impressed
    Review by Peter Kon 10/11/2015
    Really pleased with this light, citrusy, hoppy and refreshing brew. Tried first bottle literally two weeks after bottling. It is remarkably similar to the real thing and probably best for the warmer summer days. This is my first extract brew and I found it fun to make, following the instructions supplied.
    Second extract kit in FV already, whilst remainder of bottled SAPJ continues to clear/condition just that little bit more. So, now deciding what to order next.

    Very Pleasing Result
    Review by Silver Foxon 09/11/2015
    My first extract brew and first time using WYeast. Singularly failed to break the inner nutrient packet, but appear to have got away with it by just adding the nutrient to the FV at same time as yeast. Instructions easy to follow, and much more fun than tin kits. The yeast does go mental though; had lots of foam over-spill.
    First bottle now tasted and it is light, refreshing and very citrusy hoppy. It is a remarkably close reproduction of the real thing but does need a little more time to condition fully.
    Now on to my second extract brew (Black Sheep best bitter), successfully broke the WYeast nutrient pack this time and allowed more initial head room for the yeast explosion. Will review in due course but am hoping it is as close to the real thing as the "ProperJob" clone is.

    Love all St. Austell ales
    Review by Garyon 01/09/2015
    Tried this before. The only one of my brews that didn't come out as planned.
    This time I made doubley sure that everything was thoroughly cleaned and sterilised and left to ferment for longer.
    The brew has now been in mini kegs for 10 days undergoing secondary fermentation. Hopefully, when ready will taste as good as the Tribute extract I made, which, I may add, was perfect in colour and taste

    Amazing.... better than WTA!
    Review by Simonon 21/01/2015
    This is my 3rd extract brew having done WTA previously and this is amazing, better in fact. I used the Nottingham yeast but I am going to have a go with one of the WYeast options after having used one of them in the Kolsch recipe.

    Cloudy
    Review by Patrickon 21/10/2014
    I have made this twice now and, although it tastes good, it has turned out cloudy each time. Any thoughts on how I might get it to clear next time?

    RESPONSE FROM BREWUK - Try using a different yeast next time and be extra careful with cleanliness.

    Quite possibly better than the real thing
    Review by Matton 24/04/2014
    I made this with the Nottingham yeast, I had intended on fermenting it for 2 weeks but working away meant it was in the FV for a full 3 weeks before bottling. Prime and bottled and within a few days it was beautifully clear but I resisted have a quality control sample for another week or so. This is the first brew that I've made where I can empty the entire bottle into a pint glass and have the sediment firmly stuck to the bottom of the bottle. Thank goodness for that too because I wouldn't want to waste a single drop of this ambler loveliness.
    After cold conditioning for another couple of weeks I tried a side by side comparison with the St. Austell Proper Job. That did show that my extract brew wasn't quite as perfectly clear as the original but taste wise they were very similar. I'd say the original had a little more hop aroma but the extract brew may just have nudged it on flavour and certainly retained a head far better than the bottled St. Austell beer.
    Although for my next brew I will try and make a clone of the super hoppy Goose Island IPA I have already ordered another one of the Proper Job extract kits which will be going on very soon.
    Thanks Greg and Co. at Brew UK for another bl***y good beer.

    I made this as my first ever extract kit and third ever beer. It was a step forward in my home brewing and the taste is unbelievably good.

    Simply the best!
    Review by Maccason 25/06/2013
    This is a superb beer. An absolute blinder. I have made quite a few extract beers from BrewUK and apart from the odd disaster, they have all been good. Way To Amarillo was a really good brew which I didn't think could be beat BUT Proper Job takes home brewing a step further. It is simply the best. Easy to brew (easy for new comers to extract as well) and results in a really tasty hoppy beer. Summer and Proper Job, the perfect combination.

    Proper Job!
    Review by Andy Hon 21/06/2013
    This was my 1st extract kit since moving from tweaked canned kits, and what a difference!
    The boil was relatively simple, even given the amount of varieties of hops and boil times. A minor hiccup occured after a couple of unusually warm days and nights when the lid blew off the FV but after 2 weeks fermenting and another fortnight in the bottles, i could wait no longer.
    Its a world away from canned kits, fresh, and very hoppy; highly commendable, Brew UK

    I was a little disappointed at the start, as this started out too sweet, but I was too hasty. Bottle it all and lock it away for 3 months and you will have an amazing beer, I've done quite a few of the BrewUK Extract kits and this is the best so far.

    The beer that got me into home brew
    Review by Lightningon 04/04/2013
    A friend of mine gave me a bottle of his proper job.
    I loved it so much I got myself the brewing equipment and had a go.
    The extract kits are really easy to do and the results are fantastic.
    I love this proper job recipe, it's my sort of ale, hoppy and citrusy. Personally I prefer mine to the original. It seems to have more body. But I may have proud brewer syndrome.
    I've done several other brews since, all good, but I'll brew this one again for sure.

    Wow....Read on...
    Review by Wavingdaiseyon 31/03/2013
    Well I have been brewing now for 3-4 years, I tried kits, then tweaked kits and then went over to extract brewing. My first two were a little disappointing..Summer Ale (I hadn't calibrated my fermentor and added a litre or so too much which left it very thin (but maybe it just wasn't my style of beer?)
    I then went for a WTA after reading all the great reviews. Again slightly disappointed... this time I choose to keg it. It just didn't have the bite is was looking for and I couldn't chill it down enough. For me WTA need to be bottled, and I will try it again soon. Next I tried my own Bathams Bitter extract brew (Mr. Bean style- only boiling the hops not the DME. I tried this recipe 3 times...It failed to ferment for some unknown reason on all three occasions. It was a joy to make but I never got to taste it. My New Year resolution was to only brew beers I actually like. I'm a hop head, I love Goose Island and pretty much all of Brewdogs brews- Real heavy hitters in the hop department. So I thought....Proper Job may be worth a go....I'll give it one last go....
    This is the best beer I have ever made. It's strong, has a fantastic body, and the smell well, it's amazing. The hop punch and aroma is awesome. This has only been in the bottle two weeks and still has a slight haze but things can only get better from here.
    Basically, if you like a hoppy strong beer, then get some on the go. It's a doddle to make, only a 60min boil which will keep 'her in doors' from moaning about the smell like the other 90min boils. And if you like Brewdog beers your in for a treat. My faith in extract has been restored. Praise the lord. The Hop lord.
    Next Stop Simcoe with extra hops!

    Well this is a fantastic recipe producing a beer that I cannot fault - hard to see where you could go wrong with this recipe and I am happily supping my way through the results after it has been 2 months in the bottle - this one will definitely go on the must brew again list.

    Proper good!
    Review by Goliathon 19/02/2013
    This kit was a long time coming, but well worth the wait. The mountain of hops gave an amazing aroma while brewing, and after pitching the yeast it smelled just like Proper Job! The conditioned beer itself was very close to the real thing, and I couldn't ask for more without actually buying a bottle of it. Insanely drinkable, it didn't last long at all and I'm now fermenting my second batch while I'm building my new AG set up!

    Quality hops & yeast producing a very promising brew
    Review by Howardon 23/01/2013
    The freshness of the hops and the quality of the yeast supplied are the best I have recieved in 25 years of brewing.
    I have sampled St. Austell Proper Job recently in Plymouth. Although the brew needs another week to reach its prime, it is an excellent copy.
    I will definitely buy this again and would recommend it to any home brewer.

    Review by Compoon 22/12/2012
    Follow up from previous review part way through. The beer has now settled nicely in the corny, very similar to the real thing, got the abv at 5.4%. Clear, lovely hoppy floral beer, used nottingham danstar yeast, did ferment a little warm (22') but this doesnt seem to have affected too much. Would recommend this , little more expensive, but good, and will be a welcome addition to the household this Xmas!

    This is my favourite ale. I do find the recipe to be very similar to the real thing if not a tad to much stronger than the real thing. My brew came out at 5.64% ABV. Definatley not for the faint hearted and should be drunk at the end of a session in my opinion.
