JOHN BULL MASTERCLASS 3KG
GREAT VALUE BEER KITS

If you go around the UK beer and wine making internet retailers websites you should find that John Bull MasterClass is selling for under 15.00 per kit. For that you get 3kg of 100% boiled malt extract, made from just malted barley and water. This kit requires no sugar for brewing.

This probably it the cheapest 3kg kit in the UK-wide market. Other 3kg kits generally sell for over 16.00 and unlike many other 3kg kits which have limited ranges, John Bull MasterClass has 10 varieties to suit all tastes from lager to stout lovers.

If you compare it against smaller sized kits, (ranging from 1.8 to 1.5kg kits), it is still great value. A leading international selling UK-made brand 1.8kg beer kit sells for just under 12.00 with many retailers. But it requires brewing sugar or spray dried malt extract which may add around 2.00 to 6.00 extra depending on your recipe.

 

Prices were current on 05/07/2015 on selected, viewed UK websites. Other UK retailers may sell at different prices.

Go to John Bull MasterClass 3kg for more information.

21st Century beer, cider and winemaking in the home is about quality and choice. The end product is still great value, but the focus is on making excellent drinks. The hobby has changed over the decades and with it the quality and choice of kits available has improved. John Bull & Grande Maison have come up with a extensive range of kits for you to produce excellent beer, wine and ciders at home.
Our aim is to produce kits that offer a choice for our customers.
