Muntons: Muntons Nut Brown Ale Osensei May 16th 2022

Add Habanero

Really great taste and balance! Infused 500g of Caramalt, then boiled mash adding: 1kg of mdme @20, 20g each of amarillo/cascade @45, kit lme @15 and Irish Moss and 1 chopped habanero @10. Used FermS-04. 14 days in primary, 5 days in secondary with 10g of same hop mix. Fermented @20-22oC the whole time. Primed with table sugar and bottled in 500L bottles. Was ready to consume in a week, with good head retention. Taste: Excellent malt/hop balance with a slight habanero sting at the end of the mouthful. Lips start to feel the habanero sting by mid-glass. Very pleasant experiment. Getting sweeter as aging. Will probably add more hops and maybe one more pepper next time to counter this. Give it a try.
Muntons: Muntons Gold 3kg Docklands Porter MikesBeer April 5th 2022

Wonderful. Better than that stuff from Dublin

I've absolutely loved the results from the Muntons Gold Docklands Porter. I had some friends over and they were in raptures about it. One had just come back from a trip to Dublin drinking the locally produced tipple and said it was far better than that! Brewed according to the instructions, nothing altered or added and 80g Brewing sugar added into the pressure vessel. 2 weeks fermenting at 19C, then 2 weeks warm in pressure barrel with 80g brewing sugar, then 2 weeks in the garage at about 5C. Brought back to room temperture to serve. Rich and dark with good body and lovely creamy head. Quite like stout rather than porter. After 2 Woodfordes Wherry and 2 lots of Nelson's I've got the next lot of Muntons Gold Docklands Porter fermenting now and almost tempted to just brew that as it's so lovely. Definitely recommend. Based on my experience keeping it standard and the results and appreciation received I really don't understand some of the other less enthusiatic reviews. a homebrew friend has also just brewed another porter kit and remarked that it's not as good as mine.
Coopers: Coopers Real Ale BREWER PETE August 27th 2021

Best one yet

Did this with stock yeast,enhancer 2 ,500 g dextrose. 21 litres water. Dried hopped with 20 g Galaxy and 20 g nelson sav hops. Outcome is amazing just the right amount of bitterness and fruity favour. Just as good as a craft beer from your local brewery at a fraction of the price. Im doing this one again . Maybe some more hops and addition of honey.
Morgans: Morgans Australian Lager Beer lover August 16th 2021

Quite a nice drop

Brewed at 22 degrees for 7 days, I used 1 kg of dextrose and left in a dark place. After 7 days I added 1 sachet of mangrove jacks fines and left for another 2 days before kegging and cold crashing for a further 2 days. Once carbonated poured a glass, it was quite a crisp refreshing lager. Would be perfect for those hot summer afternoons
