Product Description

The Wetpak American Pale Ale is an American style ale that features the rich, amber colour and strong, citrusy hop characteristics that are signature to these types of beers.  

Wetpak Kits are formulated as extract brewing kits. They require a little more effort but the end result is definitely worth it. To make a Wetpak beer you will require:

  • Access to a stove or hot plate (one of those little butane gas powered camp stoves will work well).
  • A pot or saucepan that is large enough to hold 6 litres of liquid.
  • A spoon for stirring.
  • A sieve, colandar lined with butter muslin or a coffee plunger.
  • 1 hour of your time to monitor your brew while it simmers on the stove.

The American Pale Ale kit comes with:

  • 3kg of malt extract with the bittering hops already added.
  • a foil bag containing finishing hops.
  • a bag of finishing grain.
  • Instructions (To view the detailed instructions that come with the kit, click "HERE".)
  • A sachet of  Fermentis' Safale S-04 yeast so brew this one between 12°C to 25°C (optimal range is 15°C to 20°C).

*** Note: Upon opening the can, you may see what looks like candied sugar or a green crust. Don't panic, it's just the fresh hops within the can that have come to the surface of the malt. They're supposed to be there! ***

*** Makes 20 Litres ***

  1. Very nice formula

    Posted by Pierre on 8th Oct 2022

    I get it that people who buy from the Kingswood or Prospect stores won’t like it because it doesn’t taste like VB or Great Northern. If you love craft beer this amazing!

  2. Neutral Flavour, Very bland.

    Posted by Dave on 11th Jan 2021

    Can't see what the fuss is about. Maybe this is a starting point for a brew because it defiantly needs flavour added to it. Very bland by itself but not wildly overly bitter like the IPA Wetpack. For all the hype and reviews it was very Disappointing and I had 2 goes at it , thinking I had done something wrong.

  3. Amazing brew

    Posted by Chris on 3rd Oct 2020

    Added 15g Mosaic at end of boil and dry hopped 12g Galaxy as per recipe sheet from Kingswood store. Ended up with the best brew I’ve made to date. These wetpaks are amazing, I’m so stoked with the results every time I brew one.

    This was brew number 50 for me, majority purchased from Country Brewer, Kingswood or Prospect. The beer was sampled by 3 mates who did not believe it was home brew. This is now on my top shelf list and will feature many times in the future as I head to brew number 100

  5. Absolute cracker!

    Posted by Ben on 9th Oct 2018

    My first attempt at a Wetpak and my best brew by far. Comparable to many commercial APA's. Will definitely brew again!

  6. Top shelf ale

    Posted by Micko on 9th Feb 2016

    My favourie of the wetpak range, goes close to matching any craft beer pale ale.

  7. Great drop and easy to make

    Posted by Darren on 18th Mar 2015

    Picked this up at Daylesford on Mark's recommendation. Brewed as per instructions - my first "wetpack". Came out great and will definitely do another one when it's run out! I liked the grain and hop additions, which allow you to experiment a bit so will do so next time.

  8. One of the best

    Posted by Rob S. on 8th Feb 2015

    Great beer. One of my all-time favourites -- add a bit of Saaz hops (15g) and it gets even better. Along with the English Best Bitter, you won't find a better home-brew and the result is up there with the best of the boutique brews anywhere. Highly recommended.

  9. now a mainstay

    Posted by Andrew on 19th Sep 2013

    bought @ Maitland country brewer after a try. used some extra amarillo hops for the last part of the boil, a fan favourite and now my mainstay Ale!

  10. good ale

    Posted by troy on 7th Aug 2013

    try putting galaxy hops after adding water just before the yeast. i put 20g in a coffee mug and add boiling water let it sit for 10mins then add to the brew. stir it around then add yeast.
    very nice.
