Adjust your water profile with our range of brewing salts. We also SELL and REFILL Reverse Osmosis filtered water in-store so you can build up your own brewing water from scratch.

A Note on Fruit:
Use frozen fruit, or use fresh fruit pasteurised following the process listed below.
Add fruit to a pot of water (just enough to cover the fruit) and bringing to a simmer to pasteurize. Add a teaspoon of pectinase to the water while heating to ensure a brilliantly clear finished beer.
If using frozen fruit, allow to thaw first, then add each kilo into a sanitised hop sock and add to fermenter midway through fermentation.
