  1. The League "Dr Faustus" - German Helles Lager - All Grain Kit 23l
    $44.90

    The League "Dr Faustus" - German Helles Lager - All Grain Kit 23l

    This recipe was not specifically designed to be consistent with the BJCP style guides, but we believe it is similar to 04A - Munich Helles.

    A not quite traditional German Helles lager brewed using Best Malz. This malt is newly available in New Zealand after centuries of production in Germany. Light and highly sessionable, perfect for a hot day.

    We used some Hallertau Blanc to give it a subtle fruity twist - don't tell the Germans!

    ABV: 5.0%

    Our kits are fresh! We assemble the ingredients after you place your order. The grain bill will be milled, unless you tell us in your order comments that you prefer it not to be.

    This recipe has been designed to use acid malt to reach the target mash pH. If you wish to use the recommended mineral additions to achieve the intended flavour profile, these are to be added to the boil only. This kit does not include the minerals, but these can be purchased separately.

  2. The League "Miguel" - Mexican Cerveza -  All Grain Kit 23l
    $58.70

    The League "Miguel" - Mexican Cerveza - All Grain Kit 23l

    This recipe was not specifically designed to be consistent with the BJCP style guides, but we believe it is similar to 07A - Vienna Lager.

    Summer has come and this is the perfect beer for a hot summer day. Cold, fizzy and super easy to drink. We've used a high percentage of Maize to lighten the body and provide a background impression of sweetness. Fermentation is done with M54 California Lager for crispness and minimal esters. For hops we've stayed in New Zealand: Wakatu & Motueka since we wanted a hint of lime (so you don't have to stuff a lime wedge into your beer).

    ABV: 5.4%

  3. The League "Leichtbier" Recipe Kit (All Grain)
    $64.80

    The League "Leichtbier" Recipe Kit (All Grain)

    This recipe is designed to be consistent with the BJCP style guide 5A – German Leichtbier.

    Leichtbier is a recipe created for The League of Brewers by Jamie McQuillan of Cell Division Brewery.

    German Leichtbier is a modern style, literally meaning ‘light beer’. It was originally marketed to the diet conscious as having lower carbohydrates, alcohol and calories. This might sound unappealing but think again because this German take on a light American lager brings more flavour and drinkability than you would expect. With on obvious and refreshing level of bitterness, despite the relatively low IBUs, and carrying noticeable malt and hop flavours, this bright, clean, pale straw-coloured lager will be perfect for a long afternoon’s drinking over the summer holiday season. Even better, enjoy it with a pretzel or some bratwurst fresh off the BBQ. Prost.
