Default anyone use brewhouse?

The brew house

just curious if these are any good?... looks like a good site and they claim the all grain process they use is producing superior results...

they sell these kits at a LHBS in my city for about $38 Canadian...

I have one that is waiting to get started. Look around here and everyone seems to have a pretty high opinion of them.

Yes, these kits IMO are very good. I've done 3 of them so far and i really like them. Basically pour wort, add 8L of water, then follow the rest of the instructions. Pretty hard to screw up, just keep an eye on the date as some LHBS might have old stock if not selling many....

also, $38 cdn is kinda high priced....they're $30 around here....not sure why the higher cost up where you're at. Usually everything is more expensive here...LOL.

Fantastic kits. It's all grain sept the 8 liters you add. This is where hacking the kit becomes fun. There's a few of us that do this with great results.

This might be the wort produced from that farm/malting house/brewery my Dad said he saw on the news a couple nights ago. It's in Saskabush somewhere. Of course he forgot the name and the town (and he's from Saskatchewan originally!)

sounds good, I will probably grab an IPA kit from them for my next brew, or the holiday spice one...

so you can then screw around with steeping specialty grains and adding hops etc to create something different? sounds fun

Yup they even have a few recipes on their site. Check it out...

The brew house

I'd try without mods first. You really want to see how great the beer comes out as is. Then the next one you could tweak it to your liking

These kits are the highest quality beer kits money can buy, and are extremely easy to brew. I have lots of buddies who have won many competition medals by hacking these kits (even an MCAB medal).

I can't put my finger on them right now, but I have posted on this topic a few times, and have posted some great 'recipes' to try with these kits. With some steeping grains and different yeast and different amounts of top-up water, you can make some very different types of beer.

Denny -- the brewery in Saskatoon you are thinking of is Paddock Wood, I believe.
