Product Description

The Wetpak Australian Old Porter is a dark beer designed to reflect the classic Australian Old beer style. It produces a dark beer with a rich maltiness that is at the same time fresh on the palate like a good Porter should be.The roastiness from the dark malt is balanced perfectly with the slight woodiness and grass aroma and flavour coming from the combination of finishing hops.

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 Australian Old Porter 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. Awesome Beer

    Posted by Matt on 8th Mar 2015

    Made this Wetpak a few years ago, was an absolute awesome beer, took a while in the bottle to age but after about 6 months to a year was really good. Found one the other day in the back of my cupboard, had been sitting there for a couple of years and was still awesome.
