This beer, based on the Pale Ale style, is a good place to begin if you're starting out.
It's a light, delicious session beer based on the Pale Ale style. It's fairly dry, but with a full mouthfeel and a very subtle biscuit aftertaste with a possible slight hint of caramel. It’s slightly more bitter than commercial beer, with a citrus/red-berry hop, but not overpoweringly so.
Our ingredients have been specifically chosen to create something familiar to the South African beer drinker but, given the effort you’re putting in, something more substantial than what you buy in bulk at the store. For detail about what is in this kit, check out our 'Pail' Ale Kit page.
Everything you need to make 4 Litres of our 'Pail' Ale craft beer at home - even if you've never brewed before!
This is our 'light' beer made in the Single Malt and Single Hop (SMaSH) style with locally sourced ingredients.
While we encourage you to check out our 'Pail' Ale, if you arent really a fan of the 'fuller' flavours associated with most craft beers, this is a good choice for you! That said, this style aims to highlight the particular choice of hops and grain so your brewing effort will still reward you with something a little more distinctive than your favourite mass-produced beer.
The relative simplicity of SMaSH also makes it a great 'Session Beer' if you're looking for something to enjoy several of (in moderation of course).
Pick this one if you're looking for something to replace the commercial lager you enjoy. Everything you need to make 4 Litres of our 'Water Biscuit' SMaSH beer at home - even if you've never brewed before!
India Pale Ale (or IPA for short) is one of the signatures of the modern craft brewing revolution. A subset of the Pale Ale, IPA is the single highest selling beer style in many craft beer markets around the world. This is with good reason - it’s delicious.
IPA is typically characterized as having a slightly higher alcohol content balanced by a strong focus on hops. This hops focus creates herbal, citrus or fruity flavors rather than outright bitterness. It makes IPA a great ‘next step’ in your exploration of beer as it fuses tastes you already know with insights into the possibilities of hops. And it does it in something altogether crisp and refreshing.
Our 'Lockdown' IPA is a wonderful deep orange colour and will brew to around 5.0% to 5.5% ABV depending in how well you mash it. For information about the choice of grain and hops in this kit, check out out 'Lockdown' IPA Kit page.

Our 'Coffee' Stout gets its characteristic deep brown colour from an imported dark roasted malt which also imparts a slight nutty and creamy coffee taste. This combines with the fuller, creamier taste of lactose sugar the and the complex bitterness of a blend of 3 different South African hops to give you a cold-cappuccino-of-a-beer.
There is, however, no actual coffee in the recipe. Just the main ingredients of beer: grain, hops, yeast and water. For more information, check out our 'Coffee' Stout Kit page.
