BrewBarrel beer kit unboxing video
As I mentioned in my previous overview, BrewBarrel aims to make brewing beer at home a painless and quick process.
Brewbarrel is a simple yet innovative home-brew kit from Germany (where it sells as Braufässchen) that uses a technique which means that everything takes place in the one vessel – a five-litre minikeg that you also serve the beer from.
No more the cleaning and moving of liquids around – also, with BrewBarrel, you go from kit to drinkable pints in just one week.
In the video below I go through unboxing the kit contents.
In the kit you get the keg, a pressure-release bung, instructions, a bottle of malt extract and a little pot of hop extract. Coincidentally, this is what brewers call an all-extract kit – using this method avoids having to boil crushed malt and hops and have what amounts to a chemistry lab in your home.
There’s a yeast sachet and, as I had chosen extra hops and flavourings to go in to my Wheat Beer (Weizen), I got some Perle (the extra hops), lemon and some Bourbon wood chips.
By the looks of things, the brew process seems straightforward.
I’ll let you know soon.
