OUR BREWING METHODS
A WilliamsWarn BrewMaster™ or BrewKeg™ allows you to brew as you like, from a basic ‘just add water’ method to some slightly more advanced options using malt, hops and other ingredients. You can either use WilliamsWarn extracts or other companies' extracts as they are, or with some extra steeped malts and hops to add extra flavours. Or you can also go All-Grain and add your own wort made with a separate All-Grain system.
The Standard Method
In this method, we supply you with the extract and yeast, and you just add the water and make the beer as per the instructions. We have 14 beer kits and 1 cider kit on offer. There are no extra ingredients to handle and you don’t need experience to produce a great tasting beer. All our extracts are made in a modern brewhouse and the yeasts are the best dry yeasts available. You don’t need a kitchen either, as it’s all made in the vessel. Even if you start getting into the more advanced and creative methods, you can always make a great beer by returning to the Standard Method.
You can also use malt extracts made by other companies.
The Advanced Method
There are 90 beers in the BJCP Style Guidelines (http://www.bjcp.org/). We cannot supply all these beer styles via the Standard Method but we can still make them all in WilliamsWarn harsware.
What we do is offer another brewing method. It is what the American homebrewers call 'extract plus grains' or 'the steeping method'.
The Creative Method and All-Grain brewing
As you get more experience with the Standard and Advanced Methods, there will be a natural progression towards being more creative and making your own recipes. You will be able to buy ingredients from us or other sources and play around with hops, malts, other grains, special extracts, special ingredients, strange ingredients and see what comes out the other end. Perhaps you’d like to make a beer with five random hops and five random special malts? Perhaps you’ll get into fruit beer or chilli beers? Perhaps you start adding spices from your kitchen? You may also like to start trying all-grain brewing rather than extract brewing.
The Ingredients We Supply
When you're using our Standard kits, we supply Liquid Malt Extract, Dry Malt Extract and Yeast as a kit.
When using our Advanced Recipes, you'll be using our standard kits and mainly some other specialty malts and hops, depending on the beer style being made.
