Frequently asked questions about Brewing Sugar

What is the difference between Brewing Sugar and normal household sugar?
Brewing sugar is Dextrose Monohydrate. The main difference in the use is that it is a Mono Saccharide (one molecule of glucose) as opposed to household sugar which is a Di-saccahide (2 molecules). This means that fermentation using brewing sugar will start quicker and ferment cleaner. Normal household sugar has to be 'split' by the yeast which produces bi-products and impurities. These bi-products can have a taste which may slightly affect the taste of home brewed drinks. We recommend using brewing sugar for optimum results.

What is priming?
To carbonate your brews it is necessary to add a small amount of sugar (or enhancer/spraymalt) at the bottling/kegging stage. If using sugar, any sugar can be used but for best results we recommend brewing sugar as it dissolves quickly and leaves no residual sweetness compared to normal sugar.

Carbonation Drops can be used in any style of beer, lager stout or cider. Although the dosage is based on the Australian sized 375 or 750ml bottles, you can use them in any size bottle. If using a 1L Bottle we would suggest using 2 per bottle. If using a 500ml Bottle we would suggest using 1 per bottle for bitter and 2 per bottle for lager and cider.

Home Brew Beer Kit – Makes 40 Pints

Czech Pilsner 2.1kg
Refreshingly hoppy Czech style pilsener.

Beermaking kits from Better Brew contains the best liquid malt extracts and the best yeast strains from across the world. This is homebrew taken to a new level, make professional beer at home from a kit. 

Better Brew beer kits are made from the best liquid malt extract from several different manufacturers around the world. We have simply picked the best extract for each kit.

We have not settled for the usual "one for all" yeast strain either. We use genuine professional brewers yeast strains. So the wheat beer kit uses a genuine wheat strain, the different ales and bitters in the range contains different strains according to style and the lagers contain a particularly neutral strain.

There are no colourings at all in the Better Brew kits, neither caramel (which if used has to show on the ingredients list) nor malt colourings (which don't need to be declared). All colour in the Better Brew range is derived from the malt itself. It won't get any more natural than this.

The Better Brew range of kits come in DOY packaging (standing up plastic pouches) because it:

•Allows us to use different weights, so more malt in the dark ales
•Is better for handling, especially online and mail order sales
•Gives us a lower carbon footprint than using metal cans
•Gives us a lower packaging cost, so we can use more expensive raw materials

You will also need to add either 1kg of sugar or brew enhancer/spraymalt to this kit

  • Currently 4/5 Stars.
4Lovely refreshing, summerish taste

Brew with standard brewing sugar, fermentation took about 8 days in 22-23 degrees. The finished drink came out a little bit sour, more like apple cider, but it could be me. Not a problem though.

  • Currently 4/5 Stars.
4Decent piece of beer

Easy to brew, bit too bitter to my taste though. In my case fermentation took only 4 days as opposed to 7+ in the instructions.
