Additional Policies and FAQs
Something tells us we are different from the rest. Here are a few answers to questions we typically get and hopefully they help ease your fears as to which kit is the best for you and why we are unlike others.
❯❯❯ I LOVE CRAFT BEER AND WANT TO TRY MAKING, HOW DIFFICULT IS IT?
Our Brew in a Bag kits use the simplest process in the market for a true ALL GRAIN batch of beer. It involves the very basic steps of heat a pot of water, place in the brew bag filled with grain, stir, wait, remove grain bag, bring to a boil, add hops, cool, add yeast, wait a couple of weeks, bottle, age, drink, repeat...
❯❯❯ I AM JUST STARTING OUT, DO I NEED TO BUIY A COMPLETE STARTER?
If you are a first time brewer it is necessary to have at a minimum the “brewing specific” equipment found in our starter beer brewing kit (available in the shop). Although keep in mind we have more deluxe oriented kits available which will make the brewing process that much more enjoyable!
Beyond the starter kit you will need to provide a few pieces of common kitchen equipment such as a 12 quart stock pot with lid, a funnel, a stirring spoon, and measuring utensils. Over time, we recommend purchasing brewing only versions of your kitchen equipment to insure a clean batch of beer.
Last, bottles are needed to store the finished beer, available in the shop. And NO, please do not use the 1 gallon jug as a means to store the beer. There will be too much PRESSURE for the jug to take the carbonation. BOTTLES ONLY!
❯❯❯ WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLASSIC AND U-BREW KITS?
Our CLASSIC kits work from a glass carboy and require the use of a racking cane and funnel for the transfer of beer. The appeal to this is a more traditional means of brewing a batch of beer as well as the ability to watch the fermentation process in the carboy.
In the summer of 2013 our lead brewer introduced to the Urban Brewery line up a kit he calls U-BREW. Following our mantra of making the all grain brew process as easy as possible - this kit eliminates many of the tedious steps and pieces of equipment; creating a simpler process at a more economical price! How can you go wrong?
❯❯❯ DO YOU INCLUDE INSTRUCTIONS WITH YOUR BEER EQUIPMENT KITS?
We provide a download link in the package to our our Step by Step Starter's Guide with each of our Classic & U-Brew Kits. We have even included detailed photos to help make it all the easier.
❯❯❯ DO YOU INCLUDE INSTRUCTIONS WITH YOUR GRAIN RECIPE REFILL KITS?
You are provided the option in the listing to add a brew bag and our detailed instructions to a grain refill kit for an additional $6. Otherwise, you will receive the grain kit only.
❯❯❯ ARE THE SPECIFIC INGREDIENTS PROVIDED TO EACH BEER STYLE?
Our detailed recipe cards list each malt and hop included with the kit but we do not offer exact quantity measurements to our recipes.
❯❯❯ IS ALL THE EQUIPMENT IN THE KITS REUSABLE?
YES, even the brew bag! Although we do recommend replacing the bag after approximately 5 times of use.
❯❯❯ WHAT MAKES YOUR KITS DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS?
We utilize the Brew in the Bag technique which eliminates many tedious steps you would otherwise take on in the traditional brewing process. Below are just a few aspects which we feel makes us different and better than others:
❯ Satisfaction of starting with freshly milled grain verses powder or malt syrup
❯ Ease of using, cleaning (and purchasing) a single pot verses three
❯ Simplicity of measuring and adding water ONCE instead of 2-3 times
❯ Removing grain is as easy as pulling out a bag
❯ The best equipment quality selection
❯❯❯ IN THE STARTER KITS, CAN I PICK A GRAIN KIT OUTSIDE OF THE STANDARD OFFERINGS?
We intentionally choose grain recipes which will be easy introduction to the beginning brewer. But this doesn’t mean we aren’t willing to change that up for you. Send us a quick message and we can set up a custom listing.
❯❯❯ I ALREADY HAVE A 1 GALLON KIT, CAN I USE YOUR GRAIN RECIPE KITS WITH IT?
YES! Although you will need to purchase a brew bag your first time ordering with us as our grain recipe kits are specifically formulated and milled to work with the Brew in a Bag process.
❯❯❯ I HAVE A FAVORITE BEER I WANT TO BREW, CAN YOU MAKE A KIT FOR IT?
Absolutely! We relish in the idea of getting creative - write to us with your needs and we will get to work on it! But keep in mind we are limited to what is available in our stock at any given time so we may or may not be able to supply the customized recipe right away.
❯❯❯ DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?
WE SHIP ONLY WITHIN THE UNITED STATES. We are unable to ship INTERNATIONAL or to APO, FPO, DPO and US territory addresses due to the organic nature of our kits. Our apologies.
❯❯❯ THIS IS A GIFT, DOES THE PACKAGE INDICATE ANYTHING BEER RELATED?
We want it to be as big of a surprise as you do so we intentionally leave off any markings on both the box and the shipping label. We also do not include any invoice or receipt within the package. Your secret is safe with us!
