Wakatu Pilsner Thump@ February 15th 2017

Lots of Aroma Hop

So I have made it again with the Safelager at the lower temp and it is quite a different brew.  The longer ferment time has brought out alot more of the dry hop flavour. I think I prefer it brewed shorter at the higher temp but it is still delicious. 

Black Rock Colonial Lager Thump@ January 20th 2017

Nice Lager

A little lacking in flavour, but a good crisp clean lager. I dont think you could go wrong with this one.

Coopers Pilsner Thump@ January 19th 2017

Good for a Coopers

Hadn't done a Coopers kit for years so I bought two of these to try. Used Safelager for both. Dry hopped one with Saaz.  Both were very drinkable but there are Pilsner Kits out there so much better than this that I can only rate it a 3 out of 5. Good for a Coopers but I wont be buying another Coopers kit in a hurry.

Muntons Pilsner Thump@ January 19th 2017


Very drinkable but very sweet.  Needs some bittering hops.

Muntons Export Pilsner Thump@ January 19th 2017

Very drinkable but too sweet and not a Pilsner

Too sweet for me.  My lady friends like it though.

Crafted Indian Pale Ale Thump@ January 19th 2017

A Real IPA

First IPA kit I have made that tastes like a real IPA. I think it could improve even more with some dry hopping.

Wakatu Pilsner Thump@ January 6th 2017


There are hops included in the can so no need to dry hop. Full of flavour. Good balance of malt and hop.  Made with 2 cans of Whakatu Pilsner and Mangrove Jacks California Lager yeast fermented at 19C for 3 weeks.  Iam about to put one down again using Safelager at 13C but cant imagine it could taste any better. Rivals any craft beer pilsner on the market.

Riwaka Pale Ale Thump@ January 6th 2017

Best kit ever

Big bold flavours just how I like my Pale Ales.  There are hops in the can so no need to dry hop. Made with extra light malt and Safe ale 05.  Lovely rich malt flavour with a real punch of hops.   This is my new favourite kit.

Muntons IPA Bitter Thump@ January 5th 2017

Not what you expect

I made this twice as I was convinced that the first can must have had the wrong label on it. They both came out the same.  It is not bitter at all, its very dark for an IPA and has no hop flavour. It's a very drinkable, just not an IPA or Bitter.

Mangrove Jack's Dutch Lager gman January 4th 2017

Dutch lagar

Followed the recipe to the Tee. Fermented at 22c for 12 days.  Used 2 flat tsp per 600ml of table sugar to carbonate.  Left the brew for two weeks then chilled to about 8c.  Came ot real good. Colour about 4 on the chart.       I had  tourists from Canada and Korea stay here and they preferred it to Carlsberg.  Another couple of solid beer drinkers (own a bar) did a blind test against Heineken with one marginally prefering the Heiny and the other preferring the brew.  Easy to make. Taste pretty close to Heineken.  Woud do again

Muntons Bock Beer turkish November 26th 2016

so so...

Fatih bu kit ile ilgili hakl?s?n. Fatih is right about the kit. Kit does not promise anything. Not malty, no dark beer notes like caramel or choc or coffee. it is just a beer. i used half kg light hopped dme and half kg table sugar. probably it needs 1,5 kg dark lme, maybe it would taste like proper dark beer.

Ambiorix turkish November 26th 2016


we made it for a mate. i drank almost 5 bottles from the batch. apart from other brewferm kits ths kit is stable. i mean taste is in 1st month almost same as 3rd months. (sorry for my english probably not enough to explain it) i mean u do not need to stock it for long. brewferm ipa on the other hand if it waits 6 months it turns out perfect. anyway it is never waste of money or time. also it is very appropriate for dry hopping as brewfem gold. brewferm gold is best among brewferm kits though. well it is another subject.

Gold turkish November 26th 2016

best of brewferm..

i drank a few bottles from my mate's batch. it was 3+ months old. best of brewferm for me. after had drank it. i ordered 25-kg plastig can. he did nothing else to add suggested amount of suger. that kit tasted like to me to appropriate for any addings like dry hops or different brand yeast.

Hammer of Thor turkish November 26th 2016

it doesn't worth...

we tried here this kit and raja reward bot from same brand. well clearity was perfect. however they took to redue yeast taste more than 3 months. 21 C fermentation degree. even after 3 months they were not good beers. just average. hammer of thor especially was taste like becks beer. also one of my friends tried strongest ipa one i do not recall the brand it. he made same complainings too
