Just had an email in from Love Brewing.  They're doing all the Bulldog kits on sale for £19.95 each.  It's free shipping if you spend over £49 quid I think.

Always fancied doing a couple of these kits so I took advantage  [wink]

Evil Dog American Double IPA
Hammer of Thor - Special Gravity Lager
Bad Cat Imperial Red Ale
Bulldog Brews - Easter Brew Chocolate Stout

£79.80 inc delivery - that should fill a few of my cornies [thumb]

Fermenting:  Ditch's Stout (Chocmeister), Youngs AIPA
Conditioning:  nowt
Drinking:  shop bought [frown]
Planning:  A kit based RIS (similar to Cerberus)

Hammer of Thor, did that one a couple of times, bit sweet but good results for a kit.

Bad Cat ... tried that one done by a novice ... respectable results for a kit.

Evil Dog IPA ... always wanted to try that one ...

Easter Brew ... tried that one brewed by a different novice, didn't like it ... VERY chocolaty

They are good kits, they do what they say on the tin so to speak.

keep us posted.

I've done the Evil Dog DIPA. Didn't like it while it was young but it matured nicely and after 6 months was very quaffable. Woof Woof.

6 months ... that's a long time for it to come into form

I would still do the odd kit from time to time if they were a little cheaper.  I just love the fact that you pour it out of the tin, top up with water and within half an hour you have a brew on the go ...

6 months was a minimum for the big brewferm kits - but they were worth the wait [wink]
Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it [wink]

Brewferm ... they are quality kits ... tried an Oud Bruin a long time ago and loved it ... at the time.  I might have a different opinion today though.

Never tried a Brewferm kit... well, not yet... would have trouble waiting 6 months for a pint, if I'm honest [biggrin]

Belgian company, they actually produce beers that are true to style.  That's probably why they are twice the price of other kits.  

I've never actually used them myself, I have only tried the beers made by a couple of novice friends ... who are getting into HB.  One of those friends has since moved on to AG so I doubt I'll get to try any more.

AS womble says, they're a belgian company who makes kits for in the main belgian beers, and they are indeed spot on to style - I've made 10~20 of them over the years of many different styles, and they range from sublime to, at worst, adequate (interesting to note the kits I'd describe as "adequate" from them would be the "Pils" and the new "IPA" - proves that they should stick to what they know)

I've been an AG brewer for a long while now, but I'd always find a fermenter for a Brewferm kit if I came by one [thumb]

Lager & IPA ... probably the hardest ones to get right in kit form.  In fact, one of the most disappointing kits I ever did was the Munton's IPA ... bland wishy washy bilge.

I second that, the brewferm kits are brilliant, apart form the Pils and IPA kits, my favourite is the Xmas ale👍
