As good as it getsReview by Tony

So...I am quite new to brewing at home but i have done a few of the Beerworks kits now and i must say i have not been disappointed. I still have two other to get going.

Regarding the Founders Double American IPA - the best review i can give it is that two of my friends that i can only describe as total beer snobs have tasted this little beauty and despite wanting to tell me that they don't like it, have had to admit that if they were served it in their local 'boutique beer shop' they would go back for more. Everything about it is fantastic. I do move it into another container to settle for a few days before bottling but trust me - if you like a strong, hoppy IPA then this will not disappoint!

Nearly blown up!Review by Prof

Early days as I’ve just started but a word of warning and despite the reviews saying... bit of a lag in starting the fermentation.... I set it going yesterday about midday. It immediately started to foam. I got out of bed around 3am, something woke me, it was the beer hissing at me. Airlock blocked with foam and the bin was bowing dangerously out....if I hadn’t taken out the air lock....boooom! After 8 hrs of calming down and two clear ups, it is blowing bubbles thru the air lock quite nicely but what a rocket. They did supply 2x 40 g sachets of yeast.....so, looking forward to completing the brew and will report back. OG was 1080! (Posted on 25/03/2020)

i only use extract kits & ive tried probably 100+ different kits, including others from lovebrewing - i love seriously hoppy ipa beers & this is way better than anything ive previously tried, seriously strong with a huge tropical pineapple flavour from the hops (at least to my taste buds) the only thing i changed was to add an additional 75g ahtanum dry hops, i added the kit hops + the ahtanum after 3 weeks of fermenting & dry hopped for 1 week then moved beer to secondary to clear for 3 more days then bottled with no dextrose, yes 31 days in total - it was easily worth the wait, ive paid £6 for 2/3 of a pint that wasnt as good as this!!!!!!

Brilliant, tasty and flipping massive! Review by Pete...

This was brewed as my Xmas beer for work colleagues, always brew a big beer for Xmas, usually its all grain but this year since I'm rebuilding my brewery, I have been using these kits, since thses were my second ever brew (dockers) and never been disappointed, so for a big beer, what else would I choose? This is a stunning kit, the yeast has a lag (don't worry have a homebrew and relax) but will complete, you get a very generous 20g of yeast, so no issues there, it ferments clean and preserves the hops, yes those two large 90 gram bags that dry hop the beer, do order some hop socks or bags, there is a great little filter bag in the kit but a couple of socks will really help as well. Give this the full two weeks or more to finish fermenting before bottle or keg, it's a big beer and those yeasts need the extra time. I kegged mine and bottled with counter flow filler, the yeast had dropped very clear. This was received very well and many didn't realise I had cheated and used a 'kit". Do I feel guilty, do I heck, these kits are brilliant and super tasty, if I can't or don't want to all grain, any one of these Love brewing kits will definitely fill the spot!
PS 6 kilo of malt extract , I don't know of a bigger kit except the Love Brewing Imp stout! (Posted on 03/03/2020)
Great kitReview by John

Really really happy with this kit from the moment I opened the box to the finished product. You get so much for your money and the quality of the beer produced is so very tasty. This is the second beerworks kit I’ve done and both of them have been brilliant but this is my favorite. My brew came out at an impressive 8.4% and is so full of flavor. The nose of the beer when you pour it into a glass is all Mandarin. Incredible. Lovely citrus flavors as you sip the beer. It’s it’s very hoppy and bitter but I’m only 4 weeks into it being bottled. So I’m sure it will mellow in time. Very very drinkable beer. It’s not one for a night when you might be needing to drive home but i would highly recommend getting this kit. You will be impressed. Thanks to all who made this I’m a happy customer! (Posted on 05/03/2018)

Beware the yeast has a long lag time , up to 48 hours to see any action but then no stopping till complete.
You can't hurt love or this brew but the wait is worth it , mine turned out a cross between ESB and a hoppy happy Brewdog offering .
Best kit of this kind I have brewed , try it and review . (Posted on 23/10/2017)
