Big Ed's Craft Ale Kits

Essential Products.

Always wanted to try brewing your own fine craft ale, but never had the time or space?

We did too. So we researched and developed a groundbreaking new approach to all grain home brewing. Big Ed's Craft Ale Kit is a set of equipment that's extremely easy to use and packs away into a sturdy cardboard box, small enough to easily fit on the shelf of a standard kitchen unit.

We no longer run course but would recommend contacting Regather Craft Ale (the highly respected Sheffield nano-brewery set up by 'Big Ed' himself) if you would like to arrange a fantastic brewery experience. 

We passionately believe in de-mystifying brewing craft ales making it accessible to everyone. For hundreds of years every home maker in the country would brew beer, every day. And everyone would drink it, all the time. Sounds good to us!

Equipment + Ingredients from £105 (total cost)

Please ensure you buy one set of equipment and at least one ingredient pack to make up a complete kit!
