Absolutely. 3 months is the minimum for the rare tarbeeg.

Basically I want to no if the kits are worth the time they demand sorry for being drunk there's just too many beers to be sampled haha I use the research as getting bottles :) basically I want to no if they taste the same due tithe different varieties and if so Is going whole grain worth it ? I have lots of hbs locally if I can do it cheap enough as I am a student I'd it worth it and what's z cheap way of doing it x

I've see. Videos of greatly carbonated and great looking beer but I want to no about the taste! I've been to Belgium recently the beers where very impressive I was super fresh within no time! It was an amazing place I don't expect that if its reasonably ok I'm sure il enjoy it there is a lot of variables within brewing but I just want to no what people turned out with and basically if I don't like it?? What is the best way to go to the none kit way but looking at it the equipment is very expensive for a student anyway ? Ami worth sticking with can kits or being ballsey and going alll grain , just like to mention here I've made some great drinks for like 40 p a pint haha but I don't want just good pints I want exceptional beverages. ! Sorry for the punctuation haha

How long do u you mature. For most beers and also how long do you keep the beers for? I made some triples in December i was planning on saving some for crimbo 1 year olds etc realistically is there any sell by date on any alcoholic beverage as it contains both sugar and alcohol both preservatives ??

You can do it fairly cheap and the price of an all grain brew is about half that of the canned kits in the UK, assuming you have enough money to buy the grains in bulk - as in a full 25KG sack of grain that's about 25, plus the other speciality grains and of course hops. I did a 4% mild that was about 7 for 19L or so - it was certainly better than any extract kit I've done in the past

I'd recommend looking on the UK beer forums like Jims and there's another couple for second hand equipment and also go to car boot sales to look for boilers/coolers for mash tuns etc. Or freecycle might be good too

I got my cooler for free from a friend as the handle had broken and my boiler for 15 from a car boot sale. Then had to add an element to it from a tesco kettle and so on.

Work out how much you can afford to spend on equipment to see if you can make it work, or if I were you try and rope in a couple of mates to third the cost - if you do this though, make sure you get big enough equipment to make the split beer worthwhile!

As for the Brewferm kit, I've only done one and it was great - the oud bruin. Some beers last better than others, usually the darker and stronger they are the longer they will last. A bitter needs to be drunk young
