Very good point.

I think it is a fact that is often overlooked, especially as far as kits are concerned.

In my humble opinion, you are better off buying a 1 can kit + beer enhancer + the relevant yeast for your kit rather than splash out on 2 can kit containing bog standard yeast.

:hmm: Way more nuanced than that.

Premium 2can kit = all malt; 1can + BKE = 75% malt (at best).

Premium kits are now often coming with dry hops now make a massive difference in the finished product and some are supplying perhaps not the very best but at least an appropriate strain of yeast for the style of beer.

Additionally the cold-fill poly pouches used in the newer premium kits seem to give less incidence of "twangy" off flavours than cans.

Well that was a bolt from the blue, first notification I've had from this forum in a long time!
Been over a year since I last brewed, but it's getting close.

Yeast Bay could be added. Malt Miller stocks them. Haven't tried yet.

I had a fabulous Sorachi-hopped lager made with MJ Workhorse the other night. Really clean. Might give that one a try.

SMASH, unless you count a bit of Crystal malt.
I brewed on 1st Dec, not my best effort, only 73% BHE.

Nice to hear from you again Jim
