F.A.Q

1) How do I serve my home Brew?

Because your beer and cider has no sulphites or finings and is a live brew you need to clear it by putting it in the fridge over night, ideally 12 to 24 hours sometime longer  or the freezer for 45 minutes to clear the beer by cooling and kill all the yeast. You then need to take care to decant the brew out of the bottle into a glass careful to leave the last 3/4 of a cm with the yeast and sediment in the glass. (For more information on how to serve your home brew click here.)

Your wine will last 1-2 years no problem and Beer and cider are good for about 9-12 months provided they are stored in a cool place.

6) How strong will my home brew be?

The alcohol content is truly up to you. Simply add more sugar and let it ferment a couple more days to increase the alcohol content of your beer, cider and wine.

7) Do you deliver the home brew when it is ready?

Yes we are now offering a delivery service once a week within a couple miles of reading for a nominal extra cost of £3.

8) Why is my Beer / Cider too fizzy? (half of the brew shoots out when opening)?

Because your beer and cider has no sulphites or finings and is a live brew you need to clear it by putting it in the fridge over night, ideally 12 to 24 hours and sometimes longer  or alternatively in the freezer for 45 minutes to clear the beer by cooling and kill all the yeast. This will reduce the carbonation and allow you to decant your clear brew into a glass.

9) Why is home brew better for you?

Because our beer and cider kits have no sulphites or finings in them and our wine kits only have a little (optional no sulphites) which means no chemicals and less of a hangover the next day. Plus it tastes much better.
