Below you will find the questions we get asked the most regarding our Fresh Wort Kits (FWK). Please click on one of the questions below to see the answer.
What are fresh wort kits?
Fresh wort kits are convenient and time-saving options for homebrewers. They consist of pre-made, ready-to-use wort (unfermented beer) that has been professionally brewed and then packaged for homebrewing.
How do fresh wort kits work?
Fresh wort kits eliminate the need for the homebrewer to go through the entire brewing process, including mashing and boiling. Instead, the kits provide a pre-boiled and cooled wort that can be transferred directly into a fermenter, where yeast is added to begin fermentation.
What are the benefits of using fresh wort kits?
Fresh wort kits offer several advantages, including:
Time-saving: With pre-made wort, you can skip several hours of brewing and focus on fermentation and other aspects of brewing.
Consistency: Professional brewing ensures a high-quality and consistent wort base for your beer.
Convenience: Fresh wort kits provide a convenient solution for both beginners and experienced homebrewers who want to streamline their brewing process.
Can I customize the beer when using a fresh wort kit?
Absolutely! While the wort itself is pre-made, you have the flexibility to customize the beer to your liking. You can experiment with different yeast strains, hop additions, and even adjuncts to create unique flavors and styles.
