    2nd Extract kit
    Review by Alanon 21/06/2017
    Once again, brewing this ale was a breeze. I have not bottled it yet, but having started it with a litre and a half yeast starter, it has finished in under 10 days with an FG of 1006 - giving an alcohol content of over 4%. A considerable amount more than claimed or anticipated. It is also much darker than I expected from the description. I am happy with the results, but I bought it as I was looking for a pale, session 'Summer Ale'. Not quite what I wanted. Initial taste before bottling is very promising. I am sure that it will be another star beer, but as I said, not quite what I wanted.

    Easy to make and great results
    Review by Nigel Mon 07/04/2016
    I have been making beer from canned ingredients up to now and wanted to move it up a level to using natural ingredients. This great little kit was everything I needed (except yeast which was sent later) to learn the relatively simple process of 'real' home ale making. Tastes great! Definitely a much better result than canned stuff.

    Great taste for a lower alcohol ale very drinkable
    Review by Michaelon 26/10/2015
    Got this one in error and postponed brewing it until I had nothing else to brew, as I am not a fan of Pub summer beers.
    WOW!! The colour was inviting, crystal clear with a light head, and a delightful taste. Perfect for drinking with friends around the table on warm evenings out on the decking. Only problem was the buggers didn't want to stop drinking it, so had to lie about how much I had left.
    Since then I have brewed it several times including from all grain. Great results every time.

    It's OK
    Review by sandimason 01/04/2015
    A little bit disappointed with this one, a bit bland for my taste. I've done 11 of the Extract recipe packs (many of which I've done several times) and this one is the most non-descript, nothing wrong with it of course if you prefer maltier less-hoppy beers, just doesn't excite. Much prefer Proper Job for example.

    Great Ale
    Review by Lightningon 24/04/2013
    This is a great ale. I would be more than happy with this if it was served to me down my local. And it is getting better with time.
    The only reason I haven't given it a 5star is I don't think it is as exciting as the Proper Job or Amarillo recipes that I have also done. But that, is just a matter of taste.

    Review by freddie flynnon 25/01/2013
    I'm not an ale lover but this on is brilliant I didn't use a bag for the grain and at flame out I added 2 jars of honey and it didn't thin it out. I came out as a thick ale and had light honey flavor I bottled at the end of sept 2012 and tryed it was lush then opened on xmas and the comments I had for it was all friends and family loved it. The taste changed totally from bottling and is nice and smooth and I like to drink it myself and I'll definetly make again

    A great, easy drinking, ale.
    Review by Kolly Kibberon 21/12/2012
    Really one of the best beers I have brewed. It has a great colour and, once bottled, it cleared very quickly.
    So good that it disappeared very quickly and I am on to my second batch. Would recommend very highly.

    Much better then kits.
    Review by Richsmithon 11/11/2012
    This was my first attempt at brew extract and I am not disappointed. I tried it after three weeks and it was very nice.I then tried it again a week later and the taste had changed slightly but it tasted better.I went on holiday for three weeks and couldn't wait to try it again and I think it is superb.just as good as anything you can buy in the pub.will definitely not go back to kits after this.

    A Great Ale
    Review by Chrison 21/09/2012
    This was my first venture away from tin kits. With all the good reviews it was an easy choice and I agree with everything said here by others. Its a great ale, I have been drinking mine for a few weeks, its now 8 weeks in the bottle and has developed further, good flavour, clarity, head retention. I will definately do again.

    Try this!
    Review by Stevie Con 05/09/2012
    First time using the extract method, doubt I'll be going back to the tins ever again. Used a muslin bag for the Crystal malt, just let it steep don't squeeze as it can affect the end result. Fermented in 5 days, syphoned to a bottling bin with 90g of sugar already added (boiled in a pint of water). After two weeks I had my first taste, absolutely brilliant. Can really taste the crystal malt filtering through. Carbonated perfectly, no fizz and a good head. Recommend to any ale enthusiasts ou there.

    Pleasent to drink
    Review by Naga Headon 14/08/2012
    Had three pops at this summer ale now with different tastes each time.
    First go was as per recipie but placing christal malt in a mutton bag,(just made the removal little easier)then boiling, at the same time giving the bag a little squeze now and then. final result after four weeks in bottles was good but quite bitter.
    Second go i relaced the progress hops with amerilo hops, the results were very good with a bit of a zest to the flavour.
    The third time which i have only bottled three weeks ago back to the original recipie but boiling the christal malt loose and not in a bag, this has made the beer better than the first time and its still very young but so redy to drink.
    Well worth the small amount of effort, allways have some of these in the cupboard.

    Professional quality ale
    Review by Robinon 28/07/2012
    Probably the best beer I've produced myself, this kit is perfectly balanced, and produces a smooth, flavourful English ale, with a beautiful colour and excellent clarity.

    I will definitely be repeating this, most likely every year!

    Summer lovin..
    Review by Duncanon 17/07/2012
    Finish was nice and hoppy with malty taste, good head (3.4 teaspoon sugar).
    Very quick turn around, I brewed it for a week then bottled, after 2 weeks total I sampled it and was pleased with the results.
    Relatives have commented on how good it was. Beats a lot of beers you get in a pub!
    Will definately buy it again.

    This was my first attemp into brewing extract and was not dissapointed.
    The instructions where simple to understand and the beer tastes great!
    Fermented for two weeks, bottled for 6 weeks. Well worth the wait if you can.
    Thanks for a pleasurable experience.

    First Time Wonder
    Review by Itmon 18/04/2012
    I took a chance after reading the reviews on this after recently taking up home brewing. I used tins prior to moving to extract and I won't ever go back. This pack has produced an excellent beer, in fact had I not brewed it myself I wouldn't not have believed such a great tasting beer was possible. I tasted it after 2 weeks and I would have sworn it was Ruddles County (which I love), now after a month its much smoother, even the Mrs likes it...which isn't a great thing.
    Thanks Brew UK!

    Worth the wait
    Review by scritchenon 28/01/2012
    This was my first mash beer, and only my second overall!
    Having pressure-barrelled it in Mid December, hoping for a Christmas tasting, I wasn't happy with it by then. It's only now, after 6-7 weeks in the barrel that it has matured properly. But it is delicious. Very pleased with it and slipping down easily now!

    A cut above even the quality 3kg tin kits
    Review by Benon 25/07/2011
    I was persuaded by the existing reviews (and website claims) that this would be a good upgrade from the liquid extract kits...and have been hugely impressed with this pack. I don't usually bother to do reviews, especially with all the other positive ones written already, but this beer is lovely! A friend commented that this was the best homebrew he'd ever tasted, and it's certainly richer and smoother than some commercial beers. I will definitely make it again, both as it stands, and as a base for something more creative. I am unlikely to ever go back to a kit, since this compares well in price to the best quality LME kits, and the taste is in another league. If you're still undecided, don't be...get this kit now :)

    My first extract brew and wont be my last unless i move to all grain :)

    Really couldnt ask for more great instructions easy to make not much harder than a 2 can kit .

    The results speak for themselves i would pay for the beer i have produced and others have agreed.

    Very easy to brew up. Very easy to drink. It got better as the weeks went by. Will definitely try this one again and wouldn't change anything..... other than leaving it a month before necking.
    I bottled mine in 1 litre PETs with a half teaspoon of sugar to prime and it was as good as anything you'd get in a pub.

    Superb Quaffable Ale
    Review by Mik Webbon 20/10/2010
    my first dry extract kit and what a difference to the usual tinned kits! Was a joy to make and actually see, smell and use proper hops - different varieties at different times of the boil!!! great stuff! I kept it in barrel took it to a party and it was drained dry so a tremendous success! I would also recommend buying the protofloc or irish moss to go with this if you require it to clear quick. A bit more expensive than a tinned kit but the increase quality in finish taste etc is noticeable. Onto the Amarillo now!!

    Simply brilliant
    Review by Clappyon 25/08/2010
    Having tried moving from kits to whole grain brews in the past with limited success, this "kit" was ideal. It produced a faultless beer that has made for some excellent summer drinking. Great value, simple instructions on the website and a brilliant result. So much better than the kits - I'm completely converted! In fact, I'm about to order another kit and try some of the suggested 'tweaks'.

    Has to be the best beginner brew
    Review by BattleTankon 13/04/2010
    Having made many kits beers and beers from liquid malt extract, this was my first attempt at brewing 'from the grain'. Well, it's not really from the grain, more half and half. I tried a full mash recipe, but unless you have a big outbuilding to work in, access to a big boiler and mash tun, it really isn't the way to go. You end up with a mess, water everywhere, a wife nagging your ear off and a beer very susceptble to problems in the brewing process. No, this method is without a doubt the best way. Quick, easy, less time for bacteria to attack the wort, and the end product is superb. After about 3 weeks the beer changes and the flavour becomes more pronounced. I would recommend it to anyone, but make sure you have at least a 10lt contained to boil the wort in. Without the additional capacity it will boil over, and then it will all end in tears. Buy a 2nd barrel, otherwise you will drink it all and have no new supply.

    Best £18.99 i've spent....
    Review by Beermonkeyon 18/03/2010
    This was my first extract brew and i have to say it's absolutley brilliant... The receipe is superb easy to follow and makes one of the nicest pints i've tasted.

    Who ever came up with this receipe combination deserves a pat on the back and i cannot wait to do another version but with corriander this time around.

    Go out and buy it you'll not regret it if extract brewing is your next step forward.

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm! Nice
    Review by Nathon 10/09/2009
    My first extract and its wicked!

    The house smelt lovley and malty and it was great to see the process from start to finish. The taste of the brew was great. Smooth and malty with subtle hops to begin with, very drinkable. After around 6weeks in the keg it changed to a more hoppy smooth beer which was unbelievable, so nice. Problem is that there is only a few pints left now! Im fact the only reason it has stayed for 6weeks is that I went on holiday for 2 of them!

    Just finished the last pint of this, a real easy drinking session ale. Good colour and taste. It smelt like horlicks a bit when boiling it up. I've never made a kit so can't really compare the two but I'll make another 40 pints of this and try some corriander seeds in there to try something new. C'mon Brew I need some more recipes.

    Review by Steven Fimmon 26/03/2009
    Been brewing kits for a while now and i just fancied having a go at extract i was a bit suprised at the cost but i supose you do have enough hops left for another 40 pints so its not bad really only a few quid more for 80 pints of this than buyin 2 premium kits and believe me you can taste the difference all right.It took a bit longer than your kits do but definietly worth it.The taste is spot on.that recipie is lush.i'm never goin back to kits.
