I have just started my first ever beer from a kit. I was given the kit as a gift so I had no choice over brand etc. It is a Kilner Bitter kit.
As I said this is my first attempt so I don't really know what I am doing but the instructions were easy enough to follow although deciphering the hydrometer was fun.
I think I got an original gravity reading of 1040, Does that sound right?
My next question is. What can I do to improve or tweak a beer kit. Can I add more sugar or hops to improve flavour etc.
I am excited to see and taste what it comes out like
