Details

Wherry Bitter, named after the unique sailing barges which were once common on the Norfolk waterways, is an amber coloured, smooth beer with a distinctly hoppy nose and a well-balanced palate.

Its flowery, hoppy character and long lasting, wonderfully bitter aftertaste makes it a favourite with real ale drinkers.

Woodforde’s Wherry Bitter won CAMRA’s hotly contested ‘’Champion New Brewery Beer of Britain Award’’ in 1990/91. (only 3 oz of sugar or spraymalt needed for this kit)

Makes 40 pints at an ABV of 4.5%

My go to beer, always have a keg on hand. Review by Andrew

Quite simply the most tried and trusted of all home brewed beers. It's what I started with and I always have a keg of it. My best mate loves it and has bought it for me to brew on many occasions.

Also a kit you can adapt very easily, adding extra spray malt for body and alcohol, dry hopping with 30-50 grams of goldings, fuggles or an English hop of your choice.

A lovely fruity easy going tipple.

Superb taste and it travels well. Review by Ian

I brewed a batch of this beer to take to France in a top take-off keg.

I wanted a low ABV to drink on hot afternoons so I took the batch up to 25 litres (44 pints).

Fermentation was fully completed after six days at which time I transferred it to the keg and mixed in 110 grams of spray dried malt for secondary fermentation.

That was at 2pm on a Sunday afternoon and at 2pm on the Wednesday afternoon, after spending three days of secondary fermentation in the front seat of a camper van, the keg was placed outside in a shaded area of Brittany, France.

The beer cleared after another five days of "rest" and kept its integrity for the three weeks that it took me to drink it.

It has a glorious taste and the spray dried malt gives it a lovely head that lasts to the end of the pint. On the second week I added a cylinder of CO2 to the keg to ensure that the head was maintained.

I can thoroughly recommend this kit. (Posted on 19/11/2015)
Even better after slight modification Review by Shandy Drinking Shunta'

Brewed another one of these for Christmas, but with a slight twist.

Added half a packet of goldings hops which I saved from a St Peters beer kit and added extra 800g of sugar.

Turned out great!

Has a slightly bitter taste (which for me improves the beer no end) with an extra kick of alcohol.

Strength of an IPA just without quite so much bitter hops.... Nice.

Easy drinking quality beer kit Review by Shandy drinking Shunta'

Easy drinking quality beer kit, lovely smooth taste.

Started homebrew again about 6 months ago (after a 15 yr break...what was I thinking!?) and this was the first kit I tried on return. Made it twice now and it's quite simply a really nice beer that suits most ale drinkers.

It's doesn't have a particularly hoppy taste (which I prefer), though is just a malty, fruity beer that's very (infact too) easy to drink.That's probably why it's so popular.

Recently barrelled another batch which I made to 32 pints instead of the 40 it says on the instructions.... Gives it a bit more body and a little more 'umph' with the abv %.
I know what you're thinking.."How can he brew so much beer" = I have 4 barrels.

If you're one of the remaining few beer kit brewers that haven't tried this - give it a whirl, you'll not be disappointed, it's one of the best all rounders I've tried since my return to the wonderful world of 'Homebrew'.
