If you have a great recipe you’d like to share with other readers, please e-mail it to us at info@homebrewkent.co.uk.

Otherwise, feel free to browse the following sites that have a whole host of recipes that will keep your brewing heart happy.

Brewdog DIY Dog


In 2005, two guys and a dog began home brewing in a garage in North-Eastern Scotland. Two years and countless successes & failures later, BrewDog came howling into the world. Eight years after that – and more than 200 different beers later – we released the recipe and story behind every single one of those brews.

Download DIY Dog to explore their back catalogue, recreate an old favourite and put your spin on any BrewDog beer ever created.
