Over the Christmas break I purchased a Gluten free pale ale kit from Brewers choice www.brewerschoice.com.au With hopes of making a beer that I would enjoy drinking I went about brewing up a batch.
All the ingredients you require are included in the kit, yeast, malt, hops, yeast nutrient, whirlfloc tablet and finings. N.B. If you are brewing vegetarian/vegan beer omit the finings as they contain gelatine.
The instructions were easy to follow, clearly detailing each step in the brewing process. The wort was boiled, cold crashed and put into the fermenter. Fermentation time was around two weeks. The beer was transferred to some sterilised bottles and left for a few weeks to carbonate.
This was a fantastic beer after carbonation. The hops made for a very fruity beer that was very easy to drink. We had no trouble getting through the amount we had brewed. The kit was a very good way to learn the basics of extract brewing and has given me the confidence to try different recipes.
Brewers Choice distribute these kits direct to the public in Queensland, and are carried by other stores in Australia and New Zealand. Contact Brewers Choice for your local distributor.
