Wilkinson's Sweet Newkie Brown Beer Kit

Wilkinson’s Sweet Newkie Brown Beer Kit

I couldn’t resist the new Wilkinson’s beer kits, so this weekend I started the Sweet Newkie Brown Beer Kit. For only £10 they’re well worth a go. I’m not following the instructions given with the kit but I thought I would try a similar recipe to the Scotch Ale I did earlier on this year as that has worked out really well.

The instructions on the kit were really simple and straightforward with nice little diagrams, perfect for someone who is starting out. My first kit was a Youngs beer kit that was ok but the instructions weren’t clear at all, a bit of guess work was needed at some points for a complete novice. Now its much easier after doing many kits but nice to see simple instructions.

I used:

  • Sweet Newkie Brown Beer Kit
  • 500g Spray Malt Dark
  • 500g Dark Brown Sugar

Within a few hours the bubbles and froth started to appear in the bucket, I hope this is a good sign!
