    First Class
    Review by Christopher on 26/05/2017
    No-one told me this stinks in the making..rotten egg smell, hydrogen sulphide. I stook it in a cupboard and thought I needed to throw it away at first. The smell goes away completely when bottled. I was grateful for the scrolled down instructions at BrewUK as it told me to add one and half Kg of sugar. The inside label on the can was glued at the important bit obliterating three words of very sentence.
    I used ordinary table sugar as I have found normal sugar does not upset my fragile stomach, to put it mildly. This may be a coincidence!. However,I boil the sugar and 8 pints of water for 20 minutes which I'm told "inverts" the sugar aiding quicker fermentation as the yeast does not need to produce an enzyme to get to the sugar. I read, rightly or wrongly that inverting the sugar means you need 25% more sugar. Not sure this is correct. The result was very strong lager. I used slightly different amounts of sugar for each bottle, thinking I could pick the best. In the event, I drunk it far too early and loved every bottle individually enough to propose marriage to each one looking left and right and behind in case I would be overheard. I shall not buy cans of lager again or go to the pub and pay for lager.
    I was worried making lager for the first time as I am new to beer brewing. No need. This is great. far better than I could ever dream.
    I get 5p for this review , I am either cheap and can be bought for 5p or I'm telling you the truth as I see it. :-)

    Needs to be left for a long time
    Review by Chrison 11/05/2012
    After reading the reviews I brewed this kit in February ready for the summer. Being impatient I tried it a few times since then and it finally tastes good and not like yeast and priming sugar. Good value kit if you have room and spare bottles to leave it in the garage for a couple of months.

    Leave it...
    Review by Adam Turkson 05/10/2011
    PLEASE ignore the person who says that this is fine after a couple of weeks. No! God no! I used a good quality yeast and that but it is really not good for AT LEAST 4 weeks and even then I would try for 6 min.

    Obviously every brew is better the longer its in the bottle, but in a lot of cases it tastes nice but you know it will get better. Not in this case.

    It's good value but only if you have the discipline to leave it in the bottle for a good bit, otherwise I would rather pay the extra.

    Great Taste, Great Price
    Review by Brew Monkeyon 12/01/2011
    For the price of this budget kit you really cannot fault it.
    A nice crisp refreshing taste, easy to brew and less than a tenner for 40pints!! Bargain.

    If your looking for an easy to drink lager this is perfect.

    Value for money
    Review by Cookieon 20/07/2010
    I have tried other lagers before with not very good results. This however is excellent. I cannot fault it for a home brew. tasts better than some shop bought lagers and excellent for BBQ's.

    benchmark
    Review by markon 20/07/2009
    For the money, this is simply outstanding.
    Use BOTTLED water ( tesco 98p for 5 ltr) add LIGHT SPRAYMALT instead of sugar ,and brewing sugar to GLASS bottles . Sit back and wait ( hard part) 3 weeks .Then you should have a smooth , ( but crisp ) oh, and a 5.8 abv brew.

  • good for the price
    Review by will tolgateon 21/04/2009
    strong and good for the price.i've been brewing for years and tried loads of kits in my time.i come back to this when i can't afford a premium kit.always use glass bottles it does affect the taste and never use the cheap yeast in the kit buy a good one then it doesn't taste to different to one that costs nerly 20quid
