Big Ed's Craft Ale Kits

Our an extremely efficient brewing process that can produce delicious all grain craft ale in just over half the time taken by a traditional home brew set up.

By using your kitchen hob as a heat source you save the expense of, and space taken up by, a traditional boiler.

Wherever possible the components of our kits are manufactured in the UK.  The brew bags are hand-made in Yorkshire and the insulating blankets are made from British sheep's wool.

Our instructions are written so that the complete novice can understand and use them to create fine craft ale. All brewing terms are explained and jargon is kept to a minimum. We will help you to understand basic brewing terminology, but you can create brilliant beer whether you know what wort is or not!

Developing our kits and ingredient packs has been a real adventure. Buy a kit or do a course and join us on our intoxicating journey.

Brewing with our kits is quick and easy.  Watch this video to find out just how quick and easy it is.
