Not exactly a cheap brew this Grolsch

Postby Scott » Sat 30 Mar, 2013 12:57 am

Placed my order for all the kit required to make my Grolsch.

£51!!

Definitely not cheap as it'll be over £1 per pint lol.

Having said that there will be a lot of leftover hops, malt, etc so it's not as bad as it seems :)

So hope it's worth it, can't wait :D

That is quite a lot for a pint of grolsch.. But if the result is good why not :).. The only thing is with grolsch is that the day after I have a nasty head ace.. More then other beer..

Heineken is cheaper to brew btw.. Just drink a lot of good lager and fill it on the toilet, let it cool in the fridge over night and done..

Lol. Funny you should mention Heineken as I was told it's back to the way it was years ago and is comparable with Grolsch now.

It's not actually as bad as it sounds. The costs involved take into account 3x100g packs of hops and 1kg of grain, all of which I will only be using a small amount of. The extract that I am using cost £25 and the yeast was £7. By the time I use the small amount of grain and hops it will probably have cost under £40, so actually less than £1 per pint.

If it's as good as I hope it's going to be, I certainly won't grumble :)
