Bulldog Brews beer kits take home brewing to a whole new level
BULLDOG BREWS BEER KITS – THE RANGE
‘Bulldog Brews’ have chosen to go way beyond the traditional Premium kits based on 3 kgs of malt extract and often using the same fast but boring yeast strain across the range.
The ‘Bulldog Brews’ beer kits all contain unprecedented amounts of malt extract, different varieties of hop pellets for the extra finishing touch and specialist brewers yeast strains for a true brewery quality home made beer.
So what makes these kits so special? Let’s have a look inside!
These kits are the first on the market using bag-in-box technology packaging, this was chosen over cans because:
- It allows the use of various weights in each different homebrew beer kit, so more malt in the dark ales
- It is a more robust packaging, well suited for online sales and for mail orders.
- It gives us a lower carbon footprint than using metal cans.
- This type of packaging is cheaper than cans, so more raw material can be put into each beer kit for the same cost.
- The bags can be used to store wine or other liquid in an airtight environment and easily dispensed using the optional screw-on tap.
The new ‘Bulldog Brews’ beer kits are packed with new and innovative solutions and together with impressive amounts of the best available raw materials, produce a stunning quality home brewed beer.
Some of the highlights are – varietal hop pellets using teabag technology, varietal brewers strain yeasts and the first ever 4.7 kg malt extract kit on the market.
