Brewcraft Kit Converters

Making special beers, easily
What about making special beer styles that don’t come in kits? For example, you might like to make a beer like a genuine German lager. All you have to do is add what we call a Kit Convereter to a regular beer kit and before you know it, you have made a really special beer.

We import special hops from Europe, England, America and New Zealand and we use a selection of malts and grains that are needed to get the particular flavours of these special beers. We have put them together in simple kits so that you can make the style you want with only 5 to 10 minutes extra work.

These special kits are called BREWCRAFT KIT CONVERTERS. They could not be easier to use. Simply mix the kit with water in a saucepan, bring it to the boil and add it to your regular beer kit in the fermenter

#40 AUSTRALIAN LAGER
The classic Australian lager with a quality boost. A premium lager, creamy and smooth with excellent malt and hop character. Additional Australian aroma hops give this great beer that extra quality boost that is noticeable in several “Premium” Lager styles on the market these days. Add it to lager or Munich lager kits.

#42 AUSTRALIAN BITTER
Better than the classic Aussie Bitter with improved head and a smooth texture. The extra bite of hops is accompanied by some fine hop aroma. Additional malt is used to balance these characteristics. Add to Pilsner, bitter or draught kits.

#44 AUSTRALIAN SPECIAL BITTER
Like a Fosters Special or a Toohey's Blue, but noticeably better. Again, we have used hops and malt to great effect but in this beer, malt levels are subtle and special attention has gone into enhancing the colour. Add to Pilsner, draught or bitter kits.

#50 NEW ZEALAND LAGER
Again, we use genuine hops, this time from New Zealand to make this terrific malty Steinlager style. These hops have excellent levels of bitterness as well as aroma and flavour and they really enhance this beer. Add to lager or Pilsner kits.
