Fresh Wort Kits

HopDog Fresh Wort Kits are the best way to brew at home and get craft brewery fresh results, without the need for a full all grain set up. Our 15L Wort Kits make 20L of awesome home brew, all you need to do is add yeast! Pour your 15L of wort into a sterilised fermenter, top up with 5L of water and add the yeast. Ferment as normal, package as you like in either keg or bottle. 

We like to think that these Kits are just a starting place for your own creativity. Don’t feel as though the suggested yeasts are the be all and end all, change it up, dry hop it if you like, maybe don’t dilute it… It’s up to you. 

Please note: whilst we take the greatest care in brewing our Fresh Wort Kits, there are slight differences from batch to batch. The listed Original Gravity can vary from brew to brew. Feel free to adjust as desired. 

Golden Ale

approx. OG: 1.045, 25 IBUs.
A hop-forward, average-strength to moderately-strong pale bitter ale. Drinkability and a refreshing quality are critical components of the style. Brewed with Australian ale and wheat malts and 2 types of crystal malt. Hopped with Australian Ella hops. 

Suggested yeast: US-05, Wyeast 1056 or similar.


approx. OG: 1.050, 40 IBUs.
A decidedly hoppy and bitter, moderately strong American styled India pale ale, brewed with Australian ale malt, crystal and biscuit malt. Hopped with New Zealand Riwaka and Australian Vic Secret hops. Fruity and loads of tropical fruit and bitterness. 

Suggested yeast: US-05, Wyeast 1056 or similar.

Cascade Pale Ale

approx. OG: 1.044, 25 IBUs.
A pale, refreshing and hoppy ale, with sufficient supporting malt to make the beer balanced and drinkable. Single hopped throughout with American Cascade hops. 

Suggested yeast: US-05, Wyeast 1056 or similar.

Amarillo Rye Amber Ale

approx. OG: 1.052, 25 IBUs.
Like an American pale ale but with more body, more caramel richness, and spiciness from 13% rye malt in the grist. Balanced more towards malt than hops, but hopped liberally with American Amarillo. 

Suggested yeast: US-05, Wyeast 1056 or similar.

Hoppy Hefe

approx. OG: 1.049, 22 IBUs.
A refreshing hopped up American styled wheat beer, somewhere between a Hefeweizen and an American pale ale. Hopped with American Cascade and Amarillo hops. Fermented with a clean US styled yeast it’ll be all about the hops, but ferment it instead with a traditional German wheat yeast, and it’s all types of banana and cloves and spicy citrus hops. 

Suggested yeast: US-05, Wyeast 1056, or Wyeast 1010, WB-06 or similar.


approx. OG: 1.051, 18 IBUs.
A new world Pilsner, brewed with pale and Munich malts, and hopped with New Zealand Motueka hops. Clean crisp malt and light zingy citrus hops. 

Suggested yeast: S-23, Wyeast 2112, Wyeast 2272 or similar.

5 Hopped Amber Ale

approx. OG: 1.052, 30 IBUs.
This rich and decadent amber ale is brewed with 5 malts and 5 hops – Australian Vic Secret and Ella and American Chinook, Amarillo and Cascade. If you’re into hops and malt, then this amber ale is for you. 

Suggested yeast: US-05, Wyeast 1056 or similar.

Belgian Pale Ale

approx. OG: 1.046, 19 IBUs.
Like an American pale ale but not. Light in body and released just in time for Summer, with a hefty dose of NZ Motueka hops. The Belgian Pale ale if fermented with a funky Belgian yeast can exhibit aromas and characters of bananas, clove, apple, and stone fruit. 

Suggested yeast: T-58, Wyeast 1214 or 3522 or similar.
