Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Why should I get a kit to brew my own craft beer when I can buy them from the local bar?
A: Craft beers command a premium due to the nature of ingredients used and the process involved to give the craft beer its unique taste and characteristics. This kit gives you the chance to experience the brewing process itself and lets you enjoy top quality craft beer at a lower cost.

Q: What is so special about our craft beer kits?
A: Our kit teaches you to brew with the all-grain method, providing you with the maximum authentic brewing experience. We have also taken the liberty to include everything (less some common household items) you need in this kit, including the glass bottles to serve your beers from. This is to ensure that there are no hidden or miscellaneous costs to your homebrew journey.

Q: All-grain brewing method? What's that?
AThere are three methods of homebrewing namely, extract brewing, partial mash brewing, and all-grain brewing. The first two involves malt extract during the process. We believe in mastering the all-grain method from the start as it is beer brewing at its purest form. While it may be slightly more complicated, that's exactly why we are here to guide you along. Once you have mastered all-grain brewing, the other two methods will be much easier to pick up.
