Famous Beer Recipes

Here's a great collection of recipes (see below) for beers similar to many of the popular commercial beers we all know & enjoy.

These recipes are not copies . . . we are sure you will notice differences between the beer you make and the original. They are simply similar styles of beer which we believe you will like very much if you are keen on the original.

You can buy many of the recipes below as complete recipe kits or you can make them by buying the ingredients separately. See below for recipes available in kits.

Cider recipes too

That's right. You can also get the marvellous Brewcraft Irish Ciders (sweet or dry) in a kit.

There are also some wonderful variations to these ciders with additional flavour notes.

Ultra Easy Recipes Ultra Easy Recipes
These recipes use BREWCRAFT BEER KIT CONVERTERS in combination with a good quality beer ingredient kit. They allow you to take a standard style beer kit and change it into a special style of beer. For instance you can take a regular Australian lager kit and alter it into an authentic German lager with genuine German hops to give the aroma & maltiness of the real thing
