It's a perfect time to stock up on ingredients & hardware for a summer of quality home brew. 

~  Your Own Bespoke BBQ ~

Daylight savings & warmer weather means we can spend more time outdoors, and that means it's BBQ season. All over the country covers are coming off & BBQ's are getting a spring clean in preparation. To take your BBQ to the next level, why not let us help you to make your own bespoke sausages with one of our Sausage Kits. With one of these kits all you need to add is 5kg of meat...and a BBQ !

If you haven't got a mincer, why not try our Salami & Sausage making Kit. This package includes a manual mincer & nozzles to mince the meat then fill your casings. Not only will you be cooking the freshest produce you can, you can gather family or friends to help make them.

~ Cade's Brew News ~ 


On the 16th of September Vicbrew , Victoria's biggest amateur home brewing competition took place at the Belgian Beer Cafe in Southbank. Home Make It are proud to be part of such a fine annual event & this year we sponsored the American Pale Ale category. Kyle & myself also attended the event & helped out where we could. We both judged some wonderful examples of home brewed beer & the quality of entries were very high ! Well done to all the entrants, and the Vicbrew committee for running a great weekend.  

As brew season gathers steam, we have been busy beavers here at Home Make It packing down multiple hop varieties to pop into our fridges, then for you to pop into your next beer. this week alone we have unpacked Galaxy, Ekuanot ( formerly known as Equinox ), Citra & good old Fuggles.


We still have reasonably good stocks of the wonderful SS Brewtech range here, and what better time to upgrade than with our 10% off Octoberfest sale ? Get some shiny & sturdy Stainless in your shed, you won't regret it !
