Can anyone recommend a good home brew lager kit?

Recommended Posts

My wife has been getting into the home brew making for the past few months whilst I'm at work as she doesn't want me to interfere with it in anyway(apart from drinking it).

So far she's made me two batches of stout which has been pretty decent and a barrel of lager which was also nice. The lager kit was bought in Wilkinson's store down our local high street, not sure of the brand name though. I've just ordered Coopers European lager kit online but was wondering if there's a decent strong lager kit out there that packs a punch?

Hi Mick,

A few years ago, I bought the kit from Wilco (cheap and decent quality) and the mixture from Bulldogbrews. Worked really well!

I did lager and bitter.  Lager worked out better.

Best

Yesterday I bought a 4.2% kit from Wilko in the High Street and my missus has got this fermenting now. I'm waiting for the Coopers kit to arrive but in the meantime the UPS delivery driver delivered the Hammer of Thor. It turns out he's into home brew as well so we got chatting for a few minutes. The hammer of Thor is the strength I was looking for but the lighter one is nice just to sit and enjoy in the garden without getting hammered.

Try contacting Cambridge Homebrew. Bloke who runs it knows a goodly bit and they do delivery 

Just looked at their website but it doesn't display any stock for sale, only way is to ask them for a quote.

From memory they all taste like piss.ūü§Ę

They have got better over the years. My first attempt back in 1992 was barley wine & it taste rank but blew my head off!
