    Excellent
    Review by Bobon 11/04/2018
    This produced an excellent brew. The main problem is that the total brew is small - thus everytime you take an SG reading you are seriously diminishing the final amount (an SG reading for a small batch is the same volume as a large one). The other problem is that I femented in a one-gallon flagon and it was very difficult to get the dry hops in and out with a weighted bag. However I see this pack as a good trial for a full version.

    Very tasty
    Review by Jonathanon 14/06/2016
    This was my first Stove Toppers kit. I am very pleased with it. Easy to make, instructions fine and clear. And a wonderful hoppy smell during the boil. I did use small muslin bags when dry-hopping. Made removing the hops real easy when it comes to bottle time.
    And the final product - Very tasty. I would make it again, for sure.

    Defiantly recommended, tastes amazing!
    Review by Seanon 15/05/2016
    Very easy to brew for first timers, the instructions are easy to follow. Id recommend you buy a brew bag or a bigger sieve with this as will make your brew day easier/less messy. 4 weeks of conditioning and this tastes amazing. If you can be more patient the pay off is even better!

    Simply the best!
    Review by Martinon 20/01/2016
    I have been brewing for many years from kits and have done several malt extract recepies and a couple of stove toppers. This one really takes the biscuit though. At first try after about 4 weeks in the bottle, it was very nice and was promising. However, after 6 weeks it is outstanding. Remnds me of an afternoon I spent in a BrewDog pub in Glasgow. Wow! The stove topper kits are easy enough to do but are more time consuming than a normal "out of the tin" kit. Worth the effort and gives you an insight into the quality you can get from all grain brewing. It took 15 days to ferment, then bottled and a few days in the warm and 6 weeks in the cold to settle and mature. Oh dear. Looks like I will have to invest in some all grain kit. Help me Grainfather . . you're my only hope. . .

    A first intro to all grain...
    Review by Edwardon 29/09/2015
    If like me you've been holding off all grain due to complexity & extra equipment these are a great idea.
    And my drinking isn't so prolific that I need 40pints at a time, at least I'd rather have a rolling supply of smaller batches.
    All ingredients included, instructions adequate (some interpretation/common sense required). Only difficulty was sparging using regular size sieve/strainer due to volume of mash.
    Looks and smells great, going into an easy keg shortly.
