Has anyone else bought/used any of the all grain kits? How did it turn out? Are the quality of the ingredients good and how do they rate compared to the brupaks kits that the homebrewcompany sell?


I did the Brupak tripel mashkit last week. its in the secondary fermenter now. Came with a bag of hops but no instructions on when to add to the boil. I prefer bitter beer so I added 3/4 at 60mins and 1/4 near the end.
I did thehomebrewcompany's dunkelweizen mashkit 2 days ago. the instructions with this kit are better then the Brupaks and appears to have come with a better quality yeast. Hops seemed fresher too, but I'm no expert..they could be just a stronger hop as you dont get to know what you are getting...

Both kits instructions assume you are using a mashtun. I did one brew in the bag, so had to adjust the water quantities to suit my setup.
I did the dunkel in a 24lt coolbox mashtun. It was a bit small for the amount of grain, so I just used whatever water I could fit in for the mash.

The homebrewwest Brewferm kits look good, I hope to try the weizen kit sometime..

@McGrath good stuff - let us know how it turns out.

I'm thinking of giving the brewferm triple a go - more out of curiosity than anything else. I could alternatively put together all of the ingredients myself - but i guess I'm just curious about these kits. Well - only one way to find out....

I will, it'll be a slow burner tho, OG was 1.074. I've been advised to give it about 6 months to mature. So I've done a dunkelweizen, a pils and just finished a linthwaite light to keep me amused in the meantime :D

Doing the exact same mashkit now, instruction are crap alright, no idea when to add the hops!
