Just thought I'd contact you to say a great big thank you!!!
I decided to play safe and not go for the dry kits but for your Beers of The World kits.
I tried 2 - the London Bitter and the Black Country Mild.
These are by far the best kits I've ever made after 5 yrs of home brewing. Usually I get a yeasty taste and I can tell it's my own stuff - but with these two They honestly taste as good (if not better ) than stuff I've paid £2 a bottle for!
I bottled the mild and was worried as you suggest putting it in a barrel but it's brilliant stuff with nowt wrong with it in bottled form!!
I was considering going all grain but after these kits is it really worth the bother??
Thanks once again,

"Brupaks kits have the edge over most if not all kits on the market, not only do they have great recipes, great yeast and use the best concentrated malt available they also supply a measured quantity of hops to restore the hop flavor and aroma in a handy teabag form." - Homebrew Forum
These beer kits are produced with one thing in mind - QUALITY with the minimum of effort!
These are more than just beer kits they are CONCENTRATED BREWERS WORTS.
Production follows traditional brewhouse procedures using only the finest quality 2-row malting barley and the choicest English hops.
The grist (crushed malt) is 'mashed' with water at 65°C for about one hour to convert the starches into sugar. The resultant liquid (wort) is strained off into a boiling vessel where hops are added for bitterness.
After boiling, extra hops are added for flavour and aroma.
In a commercial brewery the wort would be cooled rapidly to around 20°C, then transferred to a fermentation vessel where it is transformed into beer.
As these worts are to be fermented at home, they first need to be reduced to a convenient size for the home beermaker to carry.
To achieve this, the excess liquid is evaporated under vacuum, at low temperatures to preserve the delicate flavours, then pasteurised and canned.
To continue the brewing process at home, all that is necessary is to dilute the concentrated wort back to its original density and ferment!
Extra hops are included to restore aroma lost during production.
Included in the box are some advanced instructions for those who like to experiment.
Subtle flavour differences can be achieved by adopting a few advanced techniques e.g. bitterness adjustment, sweetness, colour etc.
So - 3kg of quality hopped malt extract with a bag of hop pellets which can be used simply and cleanly to enhance the hop character of the beer.
These are sugar inclusive beer kits made from the finest malt extracts, blended to produce authentic styles reflective of the names that they bear.
More malt extract, varietal yeasts, varietal finishing hops.
Bulldog Brews use up to a third more malts and extracts than most beer kits to significantly raise the quality of the beers produced.
They take the established traditional quality and then add the latest brewing technology to give the best possible quality home brew beermaking experience.
As these are premium kits, you will of course not need to add any sugar when you start your fermentation.
They contain pouch technology (no metal cans anywhere).
With pouches different weights are used for different kits in the range with specific hops sachets & dedicated double quantity heavily flocculating yeasts.
Burton Bridge Brewery
Burton beers, traditional hall-mark of great beverages.
Burton Bridge Brewery takes its name from the Burton Bridge over the meandering River Trent at Burton-on-Trent.

A saunter around the area will reveal the tradition of brewing here.
These brews emulate this area famous for its beers which benefitted from the Burton waters high in sulphates and which identified the calcium sulphate content as being responsible for accentuating the clean tasting hop bitterness in Burton Ale.
