Beer Making 

   

We've all had those friends who, in the past, have made brews that only he/she could actually enjoy drinking and they always forced it upon us gentle folk who were too polite for our own taste buds.

Well, things have changed, homebrewing has come of age!!

Brewing your own beer, these days, is as easy as making a cup of coffee and it tastes GREAT !! 

 No more boiling malt or hops. Just add the concentrate to your sterilised fermenter with 1 kg of brewing sugar, 2 litres of boiling water and top up to 23 litres with cold water.Leave to ferment for about a week, then put into bottles. Mature for at least three - four  weeks (longer is better) and it's ready to drink.

Barons offers a range of popular selection of premium microbrewery styles that offer full aromas and flavours for the discerning beermaker.

Amber Ale
Malty rich flavour and body. This reddish ale has slightly more bitterness than typical ales but its maltiness gives a nice balance between sweet and bitter. Our unique blend of 2-row pilsen, crystal and chocolate malts gives this ale its incredible character.

Dutch Lager
This globally popular beer reflects the styles of Grolsch and Heineken, with a crisp golden lager character and smooth spicy hoppiness, rounding out to a gentle, grassy finish. Crisp, distinct and delicious.

Pale Ale
A superior rendition of this famous ale beer. It has a rich, chestnut colour with a slightly higher hop bitterness for a true English pale ale flavour.

Redwood Ale
A copper colour cream ale with traditional Canadian hop flavour and aroma. The superior maltiness and body in this flavourable ale are derived from a special blend of 2-row pilsen malt and crystal malt. Full and refreshing.

 


The Beer Machine  
$275.00
( includes your first beer mix )

The Beer Machine is your very own micro brewery. You can make your beer in a few steps!

The Beer Machine works as an all-in-one single step fermenter, conditioning vessel, and dispenser apparatus. It is a beer brewing method designed and engineered by professional brewers who also build and design micro breweries and understand the science of brewing. They have formulated the preparation of The Beer Mixes for those who want to make beer at home, brewed quickly and without need of further preparation other than the addition of water in a vessel that is completely airtight and protected from outside environmental influences. Almost 20 years ago, a team headed by Dr Michael J Lewis  from the University of California at Davis completed the design and engineering for what today is the world's most popular device for home beer making.  

The Beer Machine has revolutionized the way people make beer at home, brewing small batch, premium beers.  You don’t need a stadium-sized plant that eats a river of rocky mountain water to brew beer.  And you don’t need beakers, tubes, a room full of gauges, and three painful weeks to homebrew it either. Beer brewing methods have made great advances - because technology really does makes a difference!

All you need is... a Beer Machine.

The beer that comes out is really good, and if you follow the simple instructions you can't screw it up!

 - At the end of the 19th century a beer was brewed especially for the dockyard workers of the bustling Port of London.

Porter had a uniquely rich and satisfying flavour which quenched the thirst of dockers after long shifts loading and unloading vessels from around the world.

 - Keeping the British troops supplied with fresh beer out in the British East Indies proved to be a problem during the 19th Century. The lengthy journey by sailing ship caused the beers to spoil and a special brew therefore had to be supplied - India Pale Ale. 

Highland Heavy Ale
 - In the Highlands of Scotland, centuries ago, small breweries began producing rich, dark, hoppy ales know locally as "Heavy". In addition "Light" beers were also brewed, known south of the border as Milds, but it was a pint of "Heavy" which typified the highlanders' preference.

Imperial Stout captures the essence of this truly classic beer, with its full body, rich black colour and distinctive dry bitterness.

YARD of ALE GLASS

    Yes, we know these shapely vessels are frequently associated with rugby-playing nice-but-dims who love to bray on about the time they pulled their pants down in the uni bar, but don't let the behaviour of a few gammon-armed twits put you off, because the Yard of Ale Glass remains popular for a very good reason. Put simply, this glorious glass of doom/triumph is hilariously entertaining in any party scenario, as attempting to down its contents is utterly irresistible!

   What's more, the unique shape of the Yard of Ale Glass actually dates back to the days of horses and highwaymen; the long necked glass could be handed up to carriage drivers whilst they sat atop their horse-drawn vehicles - no dismount required! And whilst we're busy attempting to intellectualise this paragon of partying, it's worth remembering that a young Bob Hawke got into the Guinness Book of Records for draining a yard glass in 12 seconds. And he went on to become the Prime Minister of Australia.

 

This beautifully-crafted specimen is not one of your cheapo, party shop jobs. On the contrary, our Yard of Ale Glass is a handcrafted piece of high-quality glassware that you'll want to crack out at every single soiree (except perhaps your Great Auntie Mabel's wake). Indeed, it's so pleasing to the eye you might want to keep it on display permanently.

   Best of all, unlike inferior imitations, this particular Yard of Ale Glass holds approximately three pints and is one yard in length. Which obviously sounds about right, until we tell you that many so-called yard of ale glasses are actually much shorter and narrower, and therefore less capacious. Something you might like to point out to Tarquin de Shandyponce next time he's bragging about his glugging capabilities.

    We've yet to better Mr Hawke's impressive time, although we hear the knack is to begin twisting the glass once you get down to the bulb-section. Technique aside, the Yard of Ale Glass is an essential piece of kit for any lager lover, ale aficionado or Fanta fan (well, you never know!) who enjoys ye olde traditional drinking games. And seeing as you're still reading this, that means you. 

 

Cheers!
