Beer kits were created to shorten the time that it takes to begin the beer brewing process to just 15 minutes from 8 hours. Beer kit makers have done all that hard work for you and concentrated the wort into a thick syrup like liquid called "liquid malt extract" or "LME" for short. All you have to do is open your beer kit, pour it into a fermenting bucket, add water and sugar (if needed). Homebrew beer kits make it very easy to brew beer at home and they come in many flavours, styles and even top brands that you would find in your local pub. Brewing beer at home has never been so easy.
