British Ale, G&G Wort Kit Recipe

Here we share the recipe we use to make our wort kit British Ale. Feel free to try it for yourself.

A Pale Ale brewed in the classic British style. It is malty with firm bitterness at the same time making it nicely balanced. It has been bittered using Warrior hops, and generous amounts of Fuggles, East Kent Goldings and Willamette have been added for flavour and aroma.
