I’ve been getting set up for small batch brewing at home, and I found a new company selling
kits for exactly that. The company is called True Batch Brew and they have a kit with just about everything you need to do an all grain brew at home. You’ll end up with about 4/5 litres of beer. There’s a pale ale or a stout kit, with refills for both available too.
Here’s what you get in the kit:
You’ll need a stock pot of at least 8 litres size, and it would help if you had another of similar size.
I had one large one and two smaller which was a little bit more work.
I got the kit in Bradleys on North Main st. You could also get it in Hollands of Bray or on the True Batch Brew website.
It takes about 3 or 4 hours to get the beer made and into the fermenter, and you’ll need to leave it for another couple of weeks before you can try it.
I tried it out this morning, following the instructions – you can see pictures from the brew here.
I’ll have a review on the National Homebrew Club forum soon.
