Why brew fresh wort kits?

Covid 19 update – May 3
There are plenty of wort kits available, and more in production. Because of previous high demand variety might be a bit limited but this will improve over the course of May.

Why brew fresh wort kits? Simple answer, because they are better. A beer brewed from a fresh wort kit will always taste better than one brewed from a concentrate. The malt and hop flavours are fresher and brighter.

The process of making a beer concentrate damages the flavours. To make a concentrate, a wort is brewed and then passed through a vacuum evaporator. About 80% of the water is boiled off. As a result the malt flavours and hop character suffer, especially with pale and more delicate beer styles. And of course it is a lot easier to brew a fresh wort kit, just add the three litres of water and yeast.
