The Wares of Knutsford home brewing category contains not only complete kits to make your own lager, bitter, cider and red and white wine but also home brew bottles to store your efforts.

The ingredient kits are all from Kilner and come in two formats. The ‘Make Your Own…’ bitter and lager kits return 40 pints and the cider kit 35 pints. There are also complete kits including a bucket for fermentation, thermometer, hydrometer and all the other equipment necessary, which make a convenient starting point for novice home brewers. Wine kits make 4.5 litres and take only two weeks.
