Brupaks BotW - Bavarian Pilsner£13.95
The pilsners of southern Germany are generally softer and less bitter than their northern counterparts. This fine example is perfectly balanced with a delicate bitterness provided by Hallertauer Hersbrucker hops. Although it is acceptable to ferment this beer at room temperature, a cleaner taste will result from the genuine bottom fermenting yeast if the temperature can be held between 12°C and 16°C. Best bottled but can be served from a keg if preferred.
Can be used with the BruBox system. Makes 10 beautiful litres.
Brupaks BotW - Belgian Trappist Ale 'Tripel'£14.50
From the genre that many rate as the best beer in the World. This beguiling beer is pale and strong with a fruity character. Although high in alcohol its body remains light due the the inclusion of genuine Belgian candi sugar. Best bottled in small (half pint or 33cl) bottles.
Can be used with the BruBox system. Makes 10 stupendous litres.
Brupaks BotW - Czech Pilsner£13.95
Czech Pilsners tend to have a 'bigger' flavour than their German counterparts. They have a rich golden colour and are often heavily hopped. Our example is both malty and hoppy due to the inclusion of caramelised malt and a generous quantity of genuine Czech Saaz hops. Ferment & dispense as Bavarian Pilsner.
Can be used with the BruBox system. Makes 10 flavoursome litres.
Brupaks BotW - North German Pilsner£13.95
This Pilsner is lighter in colour and has a much more pronounced hop flavour than the Bavarian Pilsner. Saaz hops provide the bitterness. Although it is acceptable to ferment this beer at room temperature, a cleaner taste will result from the genuine bottom fermenting yeast if the temperature can be held between 12°C and 16°C. Best bottled but can be served from a keg if preferred. Can be used with the BruBox system. A bottle brewed from this kit won first prize in the Open Lager Class at the National Association of Wine and Beer Makers Annual Show held March 2002 at Weston super Mare.
Can be used with the BruBox system. Makes 10 glorious litres.
Brupaks BotW - Black Country Mild£12.50

This beer is best served on draught. Makes 10 mouthful mouthfeel litres.
Brupaks BotW - Scottish 80 Shilling£12.50
Scottish beers are characterised by a rich, malty profile with just enough hops to balance the sweetness.

Around 4.5% finished ABV.
Brupaks BotW - Munich Dark Lager£13.95
Before the invention of pale beers in Pilsen in 1842, the dark lagers of Munich and Vienna were the most favoured beers in Central Europe. All Munich breweries still produce a 'Dunkel', and now so can you. The inclusion of two genuine Bavarian caramel malts gives this beer a deliciously malty flavour and the genuine bottom fermenting yeast its clean palate. Ferment and dispense as Bavarian Pilsner. Makes 10 marvellous litres.
Brupaks BotW - Dusseldorf Alt£13.95
The Altbiers of Dusseldorf have probably the highest bitterness level of all European beers, although they are not harsh due the use of large quantities of low alpha 'noble' hops. This Alt has a blend of German roasted malts and Saaz hops. It is malty but with a huge hop character. Although Altbiers are ales, a bottom fermenting yeast has been used as this gives the beer a clean taste similar to commercial examples. Makes 10 awesome litres.
Brupaks BotW - Bavarian Wheat Beer (Weissbier)£15.50
Wheat beers are deservedly popular all over the world but until now have been difficult to brew at home.
For the malt extract the classic ratio of 55% wheat and 45% barley has been used and the Hallertaueur Hersbrucker hops give just a delicate hint of bitterness. Although a bottom fermenting yeast has been used, the characteristic esthery flavours are much in evidence when fermenting at warmer temperatures (20C-25C).
Best bottled but can be served from a keg if preferred. Makes wonderful 10 litres.
Brupaks BotW - Belgium Trappist Ale 'Dubbel'£14.50
A mild brown ale with a maltier profile than the Tripel. Dark candi sugar provides the colour characteristic flavour of a Dubbel. Best bottled in small (half-pint or 33cl) bottles. Makes 10 depthful litres.
Brupaks BotW - Belgium Witbier£15.50
Witbiers are very light in both body and flavour and are very refreshing.
This version has both of these qualities and the true characteristic Witbier taste due to the inclusion of coriander seeds and genuine Curacao orange peel.
Best bottled but can be served from a keg if preferred. Makes 10 wonderful Wit Litres.
Brupaks BotW - San Francisco Steam Beer£13.95
Probably the only indigenous American beer style, this beer is neither ale nor a lager as it is fermented warm with a bottom fermenting yeast. This example emerges with a malty profile balanced by a generous quantity of American Cascade hops. This beer should always be bottled. Makes 10 scintillating litres.
Brupaks BotW - Christmas Ale - not just for Christmas£13.95
A traditional Belgium speciality. Dark brown, sweet and spicy. This is a beer to savour on cold winter nights. Makes 10 heart warming litres.
