Shackleton’s Easy Ale Kit

R 1,995.00 incl. Vat @15%

Our newly launched, revolutionary Comrade Kit is aimed at those who are just getting started in homebrewing. The kit contains everything you need to brew 15L of great beer. No need to stand in line to buy pots and pans or other equipment – everything is included. All you need is some water, a stovetop or gas burner and a couple of hours to spare. (N.B. the Comrade Kit works best with a gas burner or gas stovetop. If you’re using an electric hob, you might need to reduce the batch size – please chat to us about options)

Each Comrade Kit contains all the ingredients you’ll need for your first brew, as well as detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to turn malt, hops, yeast and water into the perfect pint. Once you’ve finished your first brew, we know you’ll be hooked, so we also sell refills, allowing you to brew a range of different beer styles. Browse our website to see what other recipes you can brew on the Comrade Kit.
