A sweet, amber coloured beer with a long lasting taste and hoppy aroma. The original Woodforde Wherry on which this homebrew kit is based won CAMRA's "Champion New Brewery of Britain" award for 1990/91
The original, commercial version of Woodforde Wherry Real Ale is named after a sailing barge that used to be common on Norfolk's rivers and coastal ports. This premium quality home brew kit produces 40 pints of amber coloured beer that have a long lasting bitter taste and a distinct hoppy aroma, with an average ABV of 4.5%
" Fantastic Kit. This is the first time I have made this and it is a lovely golden colour which is very easy to make."

"I decided that I wanted a little variation on 40 pints of the standard Wherry so, as this is my first kit in 20+ years, I made some changes. I made one of the two cans as 16 pint kit and one as 20 pints. I used tesco value water and split the yeast between the 2 brewing buckets and bottled the resulting brews.
Made as 20 pints - Bit on the hoppy side for me:
Quality: Good - 4/5 Price: About Right - 4/5
Value: Good - 5/5 Buy Again? Probably - 4/5
Made as 16 pints - A bit sweeter and in the direction of a Barley Wine:
Quality: Excellent - 5/5 Price: About Right - 4/5
Value: Good - 4/5 Buy Again? Definitely - 5/5

"This two can kit need no additional sugar and is easy to make. It ferments quickly, clears rapidly and produces a rich malty, smooth beer that is very more-ish. Wherry is known for having a tendency to occasionally produce cloudy beers, but I had no problems with it."
