Making beer from scratch is not difficult and when it tastes great in the end, it is a hobby you can proudly share with your friends.  We have worked hard to create the perfect all-grain brewing process for you and have developed delicious recipes using the highest quality raw ingredients to ensure you get outstanding results.

Home Brewing Basic Starter Kit

Perfect for the new brewer on a budget, this kit proves the specialist equipment and your first starter recipe pack.  You’ll need an extra-large pot and 12 x 330ml bottles.  Tip: you can always borrow the pot and save up old beer bottles for your first brew* – you can always  purchase them separately at a later stage. 

*Note that if you save up your own bottles you’ll need to source bottle caps and a capper separately. Or why not purchase our Complete Starter Kit which includes 12 x swing top bottles at a discount?


Meet ‘FERMO™’ our perfect container for fermenting your small-batch all-grain beer.  He is made of high-quality food-grade plastic so is of course BPA-free.  One of the best things about FERMO™ is that he blocks UV light which can ruin your fermenting beer.  He also has a nice wide mouth so you don’t need to fiddle about with funnels.   As a bonus, he is dishwasher-safe.  You’ll soon see why he is superior to a clear glass demi-john.

Another special character in the Home Brewtique family is our gorgeous brew-bag.  We call her the GRAINSTAY™.  Custom-made for us from a fine mesh voile which acts like a big tea-bag when you are making your brew.   GRAINSTAY™ does what she says and keeps the grains contained, eliminating the need for any sparging (rinsing) or slow filtering steps.  She makes your brew day easier and faster and means our brewing system is truly a one-pot solution.

  • FERMO™ blocks light from your beer – no need to cover him up!
  • FERMO™ is fitted with a dispensing tap, meaning you can bottle directly from your fermenter.
  • The bottling wand prevents oxygenation during bottling and is much easier than siphoning.
  • Our dial probe thermometer with a handy pot clip makes it easy to monitor your brewing temperatures – and anything else you cook.
  • GRAINSTAY™ brew-bag makes everything easier.  Re-usable with an elasticated top to fit over your pot rim while brewing.

*You will need an extra-large pot to make your beer – a minimum of 9L capacity. Our Ultimate starter kit  includes a pot and bottles at a discount.


The Basic starter kit includes your first recipe pack; an American Pale Ale – the quintessential craft beer.

Any recipe is only as good as its raw ingredients, so we only include the very best. The finest grains, all freshly milled and vacuum packed by us just prior to shipping.  Top quality hops from around the world, pre-measured into separate additions and vacuum sealed in a foil pouch to ensure freshness.

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.

  • 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!
