Brewferm Buckrider No-Boil Homebrewing Starter Kit
"Every brewer has a first batch. But with the Brewferm No-Boil Homebrewing Starter Kit, that first batch can be a great one.
Think of Brewferm as the premier gateway brewing company. Direct from Belgium, they offer top-notch homebrew mixes, brewing outfits and upgrades such as bottle cleaning that make it easy to continue your ascent into brewing stardom. Essentially, they make it possible for anyone to learn the basics of craft brewing and provide everything you need to produce finely made beer from home.
The company is the brainchild of Frans Balis, a pharmacist by trade and homebrew enthusiast in his spare time. Recognizing that beer was the best medicine of all, Balis began selling his own blends of yeasts and brewing recipes in the corner of his pharmacy. Word spread quickly, and after establishing the V.A.W., Belgium's association of traditional vintners, winemakers and beer brewers, he began shipping his kits and recipes throughout the Benelux region. As word got out about his mixes, demand began to increase for vintner and brewing kits, more diverse offerings of recipes and mixes, specialized equipment and guidance in the homebrewing arts.
What began as a hobby in 1972 has become Europe’s leading specialized wholesaler of homebrewing products. More than just a brewing supply company, Brewferm combines the unique character of homebrewing with the unmistakable quality of Belgian brewing and makes it fun and easy. Nearly fifty years later, Brewferm is still a Belgian family-owned business, and now a market leader with an ever-increasing range of high-quality brewing offerings. Simply put, you won’t find a more time-tested, higher-grade homebrew company anywhere. But what about the homebrew kit?"
