If you are talking about the Brewferm hopped extract kits from Belgium, I've tried several. Like most things, there are some good ones and some not-so-good ones. The Dubble and Triple were good to OK, but the Grand Cru wasn't. All were made to kit directions. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. Im going to give several of them a try. I was told to make them to the 2.5 gallon batch size. And another person tol me to make them to the 2 gallon batch size for better flavor.

Smeg I just cooked up a batch of the Grand Cru... I wasn't willing to pay 30 bucks for the Kriek kit.

Not all of the batch sizes are the same for all of the Brewferm styles. As much as it hurts me to say this, but ..............."check the instructions" for your particular kit. They'll be in litres, but thats an easy on-line conversion.

I brew 2 ballon batches so adding that little extra wont hurt anything. Just going to have a little stronger brew.
