I am asking this for academic interest only, the Monk is not about making crap beers from crap kits!!!

However, a client who has just moved here from Vic reckons he has made up beers from "VB Kits"

I guess they would have to be made by/under license/by permission of CUB?

Can anyone supply any info on these kits?

Sounds like crap to me Tom , if VB kits were about many K&K , brewers would be lining up.

Scarey but :eek:

Tom,
It sounds to me like your contact has been using a recipe ( if thats what you choose to call it ) from, dare I say it, "Brewcraft"
The funny thing about it that the "recipe is probably better than the "VB" megaswill that we find in tins and pubs.
I only have one thing to say on this subject and that it is YOUR duty Tom to convert that poor fellow to partial/ AG brewing.
Good luck!

Yeh a lot of K& k brewers want to produce commercial beers like vb, But Batz the reason a lot of new brewers like me starting with kits are not only trying to get away just from being ripped off by cub, but make a decent beer as well , believe me mate vb is far from what im trying to make with kits. Ok ag is the way to go but in the meantime dont knock kit brewers.

I am not having a go at kit brewers , I brewed kits for 18 years.

I would say we all started out using kits , it is the intruduction to homebrew , there is however a better way. ;)

Hows it going Batz , yeh mate you gotta walk before you can run, looking foward to getting a few tips on how AG is done when you move up to my neck of the woods then discussing this issue over a few home brews. :chug: :chug: :chug: See ya mate.

I have not knocked kit beers, caused a ruckus in fact trying to stick up for kit brewers. . . and for not locking them into a ghetto.

just wanting to check out that statement by the customer


hehehehehehe (evil chuckle) according to my bitch sister, a BiLo homebrand kit and a kilo of sugar is just like VB. Yum! Bottle after 4 days at 27C

VB kits, just does not bear thinking about. . .
