We'd argue that crafting something with your own hands and drinking beer are two of life's greatest pleasures. So by that logic, making craft beer with your own hands has to be the best two-for-one deal around.
But brewing is essentially science, and science can be hard work. To assist, the folk at Box Brew Kits have created a range of craft brewing packs that demystify the yeasty wizardry of craft brewing.
Each kit comes with all the equipment you need to start brewing, which has been designed to make your workstation actually look good (in sharp contrast to the ugly plastic jugs most home brewers are used to cluttering up their garage floors).
And because the emphasis here is on brewing beer you actually want to drink, the recipes and ingredients run the gamut of small batch faves, from rye IPAs to wheat beers and even pumpkin ales. They also do wine kits, if you really want to push the science thing.
