    I can heartily recommend the kits from www.brewferm.be.

    I've now made four batches of the Tripel and it's a very tasty brew. The only problem is the length of time it takes to condition once it's in bottles. The instructions reckon it's drinkable at 6 weeks but after brewing it a few times I'd say at least 8 weeks is best.

    If you do make a bottle conditioned beer make sure you only use tough bottles which also had a conditioned brew in them and not just a standard becks/grosch/guiness bottle. The weaker bottles will explode! I like to use Duvel bottles as the squat shape is easy to fill.

    +1 for using spray malt instead or as well as sugar. It deepens the flavour and makes for an even tastier beer.

    Hmmmmm, beer.
