Over the past couple of years home brewing has seen a market upturn as people are taking up the hobby for the first time (and for some the second time), some to save money, others looking for a satisfying and rewarding new hobby.
Brewery developed and branded beer-making kits have traditionally been very popular with home brew makers, as they generate a great sense of satisfaction, making a well known beer at home as good as the pint bought down the pub. With this in mind St. Peter’s are working together with Muntons, the maltsters and beer kit makers to develop their very own range of beer kits.
The introduction of the St. Peter’s Ruby Red beer kit last year was heralded as a great success and after much pressure from the happy homebrewers the next beer has now been signed off by the brewery – St. Peter’s IPA. This 32 pint kit offers a full bodied pale ale with a zesty character at approximately 5.5% ABV. This kit is now available from local homebrew retailers.
Work continues on other variants and these will be added to the St. Peter’s range as soon as they are approved by the brewer.
The headquarters of Muntons plc is based in the county of Suffolk on the outskirts of the market town Stowmarket, strategically located near to their main raw material, premium quality malting barley. Each year Muntons headquarters produces in excess of 70,000 tonnes of malt and 30,000 tonnes of malt based extracts.
As at May 2012, there are three varieties of St. Peter’s Homebrew Kits: IPA, Ruby Red Ale & Golden Ale.Published on February 29, 2012
