I’m very excited about having a go at my first all-grain brew and thankfully my Crafty Fox IPA kit from homebrewonline.com arrived this week!
So, whats in the box?
- Bag of crushed grains (Maris Otter and Caramalt)
- 4 small bags of hops (Simcoe, Cascade, Nelson Sauvin, Ahtanum and Chinook)
- 1 packet of dried yeast
- Instructions (most important for beginners like me)
There is also some equipment to get ready. I thought I had most of the stuff already, but did buy a cheap stainless steel stock pot and a sieve for draining/sparging the grain as per the video homebrewonline but up on YouTube.
In addition to the new purchases, I had the rest of the necessary items in my existing home brew kit:
- Measuring jug
- Stainless steel spoon
- Trial jar and hydrometer
- Glass demijohn
- Airlock and bung
Check back soon to see how I get on!
