Woodforde's Wherry Bitter 3kg (40pt) - BACK IN STOCK ONLINE !!!!

*** Don't forget 4% quidco ***

---- NOW WITH FREE DELIVERY IF YOU SPEND OVER £50! ---- wilkinsonplus.com/pag…_09

This in an amber coloured, smooth beer with a distinctly hoppy nose and a well balanced palate. It's flowery, hoppy character and long-lasting, wonderfully bitter aftertaste makes it a favourite with real ale drinkers.

Tastes very similar to Old Speckled Hen and Spitfire

Approx 4.5% ABV

This is a great quality beer kit and normally retails for around £18-20 online (plus postage) and my local brew shop sells it for £22 !

This deal works out at about 37p per pint

Very easy to follow instructions and if you dont already have the kit for homebrewing you can pick it up at Wilkinson's as well for about £20 (pressure barrel and primary ferment tub, siphon, finings, stirrer etc).

Cheers!

some of the other beer kits looked 'interesting' , with the cheapest being around £7 .. one of the biggest issues I find with kits off the Internet is the shipping costs involved. You could always call the shop and see if they have any instock before setting off for a wholesale shopping spree!

This is Wilko's standard price for this kit but as the OP says most places are a fair bit more expensive.

I bought one about a year ago and brewed it in the summer. It worked fine (although mine came out a bit fizzy as I added a bit too much sugar when bottling). Infact I was drinking some last weekend and am still recovering from the experience.

I'd really recommend these kits as you don't need to add sugar and they're a bit more foolproof than the cheaper ones. My first brew was a Woodeford's Norfolk Nog. Wilkos don't sell it but it's a darker beer than Wherry and was even better IMHO.

Hot...happy brewing!

I tasted the first of my 40pints last night - *my 2nd batch of this* - it IS PUB QUATLITY :-) BUY!

The others that are cheaper require you to purchase a lot of sugar to go with them - taste poor too.

The Muntons Premium Gold range beer kits are good beer kits

some good online reviews .. I have 40 pints of Woodfordes Admiral's ready in a couple of weeks and then the Wherry I bought today .. but then I may just give the Muntons a try

Quite keen to try an all grain kit to see if it is any better

Usually this price at wilkos. I've recently finished a barrel of this & its excellent. Wilkos also do Geordie Bitter which I've got going now. Its a fair bit cheaper (cant remember how much) & quite nice.

The wherry is a good drop. I wouldn't knock the cheaper ones, they are really rather good and only require 1kg of sugar at the brewing stage. its all really cheap and good, where else can you get 40 pints for the price of 3 (for the cheaper stuff) and 5 for this!

Muntons Gold Highland Heavy is another good beer

Does anyone know of a good forum that discusses home brewing at the beginner level? I am very interested in reading user opinions on these kits.

Cheers for the links Jason!

I will go take a look.

I'm currently brewing cider, some proper from my own pressed apples and some from concentrate, so beer is next to try!

I just found this site, all prices include shipping, which makes for some good prices for small orders! thethriftyshopper.co.uk/

I'm doing cider too at the moment, was going to barrel it tomorrow but it smells rank! Not sure if its meant to smell that bad at this stage as I havent done cider before.

Back instock on their website now

I've used this kit on several occasions (as well as most of the other Woodforde's ones - Nog's my favourite) and the results are generally pretty good, and conisderably better than the cheap ones that you add sugar to. I'd recommend buying a hydrometer at the same time (only cost 2 or 3 quid) as sometimes the fermentation 'sticks' partway through (at around 1020 gravity) and you could end up with rather sweet & weak beer if you don't realise. Jim's Beerkit forum (as mentioned earlier) has lots of posts regarding it.
