Fresh Wort Kit - English Barley Wine

$ 59.95
Our wort kits are made in house on a Speidel 500L Braumeister Brewery, they are all grain and brewed true to style. They are especially suited to time poor brewers or those who simply want an excellent beer with a minimum of effort.
NOTE: These kits are generally designed to add 3 litres of water to the fermentation for a 20L brew and to achieve the ideal balance, you may if you wish, not add the extra water for a richer, higher gravity version. Yeast not included.


A Grain and Grape version of a classic English Barley Wine that we anticipate being big and malty with a nice balancing hop bitterness. We recommend conditioning for at least 3 months before drinking. The OG is a hefty 1.084 and we wouldn’t expect the FG to go below about 1.026. We recommend using lots of healthy Wyeast 1084 due of its alcohol tolerance, aeration prior to fermentation would also be an advantage.
