If you’re going to spend the time to craft your own bespoke beers, it makes sense to start with the very best.

That’s why this English Pale Ale ingredient pack has the finest grains, all freshly milled by us just before shipping.   We use top quality hops from around the world compressed into a pellet form for easy handling and less liquid absorption. We then vacuum seal it all to ensure you receive the freshest possible ingredients.

Each recipe pack will make you 12, 330ml bottles of delicious Best Bitter Ale.

Each pack contains

  • Detailed step-by-step instruction booklet
  • Recipe card with brewer’s notes section
  • Freshly milled grains, pre-measured hops and specialty yeast
  • Brewer’s Sugar
  • Kettle Finings (a seaweed derivative) which helps to clarify your beer
  • 2x no-rinse sanitiser sachets
  • 12 printed beer labels with special low-tack backing for easy removal (customisable at checkout)

** You will need equipment to make this beer – these recipes are designed to be used with a 10L pot and the HomeBrewtique brewing equipment which uses the Brew In A Bag One-Pot method.**

What our customers say...

  • Your white ale is so good I tend to pair it with another one in short succession.

  • What a great Christmas present for the beer lovers in your family. In my case, that’s at least 4 of them. I’m customising the labels too – much more festive. Great idea Posy and Claire!

  • I can’t recommend Home Brewtique highly enough. Since receiving their, really well put together, ultimate brewing kit, I’ve been making beer at home that I’m super proud of.

    For the novice brewer, the beauty of these kits are the step by step guide to making modern style craft beer with awesome ingredients, and the quality equipment that comes with the kits. On top of that, once you’ve mastered the art of creating their recommended brew, I went for California Steamin’, you can start experimenting with different malt and hop combinations. If you love craft beer and feel like it’s time to have a go at creating your own distinctive brews, you really should invest in the kit.

    Excellent customer service too!

  • It has always been a passion of mine to start brewing my own beer. I have tried in the past with “cardboard box” kits but have just been disappointed with the results.

    Then I tried Home Brewtique! I was amazed by how thorough the instructions were for the process. Everything was covered and at no point did I feel lost. The instructions were also very educational, teaching me phrases and terms used in beer brewing.

    The process was not just simple to follow, it was also a lot of fun! I’ve so far spent three Saturday’s brewing and have loved each one more and more! And on top of all this… The final product is incredible (if I do say so myself.) A professional tasting beer with a fun and easy process, that’s why I keep going back to Home Brewtique time and time again.

    J. Birtwistle

  • Great people and always quick to help and answer all of the many questions I fire at them!

    S. Archer

  • After a few years of homebrewing myself I bought a HomeBrewtique kit for my wife to share the love of proper, all grain homebrewing.

    I love everything about HomeBrewtique, and more importantly, so does my wife. The quality of the product, the packaging and presentation, the great support and most important of all, the beer tastes just great – seriously good in fact.

    My wife is now bitten by the bug and has just completed her second brew – I suspect they’ll be even more to follow. And another thing I really like is that I’m never stuck for a birthday/Christmas present idea – nice one!
