Just thought I'd let you guys know that I went to Coles today, and they were selling "Wander" kits at $2.20 (going out of stock I think). So I bought the whole lot, which was about 8 cans. Any ideas as to what I could do with these bargains? My next project is to do a chilli beer, any hints would be great........

Cheers

You could try an all kit brew, two or three cans together, depending on the styles you have.

I'd use them for yeast starters.

Beers,
Doc

Actually, in the days when I did supermarket kits, the Wander Munich with some added crystal and some malt was quite a decent drop.

But now, like Doc, I'd use them for starters.

Ive got 2 jerries in CC from using savings brand draught. Both were 2 can brews. One I used the Wyeast 2007 and the other the saf ?34/70?.
Anyway, they were just so cheap I couldnt resist buying them and trying some lagering methods over winter.
The one with the 2007is not bad. The other one i will bottle in pet and give to my bro in law.
I have to admit after doing part mashes these kits just dont make the same beer.
I'm sure if there was nothing else available they would be great but I doubt very much if I bother with kits any more.
I have 3 more savings brand kits I dont know what to do with. Probably make a 3 can brew for the bro in law :D

cheers

Just use em to cultivate yeast :)
1 can, 10L of water, and you have enough stubbie starters to last you a year.
