Single-Can Kits

Single can beer kits contain between 1.5kg and 1.8kg of concentrated malt extract (wort), instructions and a packet
of yeast. 

Single-can kits usually require the addition of 1kg of sugar, but please see the product description for the exact
amount needed.

While you can use any sugar, we recommend that you use brewing sugar (dextrose) for a better flavour. For the very best results, a brew kit enhancer (BKE) or malt extract (either dried or liquid) will give your beer better head retention, flavour and body. Brewing sugar, BKE and malt extract can be used on a one for one basis, so if the kits requires 1kg sugar, you can substitute 1kg of malt extract.

To make these kits even better, why not experiment with adding extra hops, using either a hop-tea or dry-hopping method? You can find out more about both these techniques in our FAQ section.
