Every MoreBeer! ingredient kit is designed for a post-boil volume of 5.5 gallons, meaning a full 5 gallons after fermentation! Beer yeast is not included in the beer-making recipe kits and will have to be ordered separately. Each kit does include recommended guidelines for the best yeast to go with that specific kit.
Malt Extract Beer Recipe Kits
Pre-measured ingredients, an instruction sheet and a recipe log sheet are all standard inclusions in every malt extract kit. MoreBeer! sells kits designed as ales, lagers and specialty beers.
All Grain Beer Recipe Kits
All Grain Beer Recipe Kits differ from malt extract kits or mini mash kits in that the home brewer employs the practice of mashing. Mashing is the process where malted grains are soaked in hot water. The heat activates naturally present enzymes that then convert starch to sugars. You then rinse the sugar out to create your sweet wort. All Grain recipe kits are available for ales, lagers and specialty beers.
Mini Mash Beer Recipe Kits
Mini-mash (or partial-mash) brewing is a blend between extract and all grain brewing. It also allows you to work with some grain types that don't steep well. You can find Mini Mash Beer Recipe Kits at MoreBeer! with 5 to 7 pounds of liquid malt extract and 4 to 6 pounds of grain. Mini Mash Beer Kits, which come with comprehensive and clear instructions, are an ideal introduction to all-grain brewing. Undertaking a mini-mash enables you to utilize grains that have to be mashed without having to do all grain brewing. Even without getting all the sugar you possibly could, the beer is still likely to turn out great.
Gluten Free Kits & Ingredients
If you have celiac disease or an allergy to wheat, it no longer means you have to swear off drinking beer. MoreBeer! has introduced Gluten Free Beer Recipe Kits. Three different kits for brewing your own beer at home are now gluten free: Gluten Free Light Ale Extract, Gluten Free Amber Ale Extract and Gluten Free Honey Ale Extract. These kits have no barley or wheat among their ingredients, but blends of sorghum extract, dried rice extract, honey and Belgian candi syrup serve as suitable "stand-ins" for malt extract. Some hops are still part of the recipes because of their ability to cut through beers that do not contain malt.
