The only thing I can fault in this kit is that they fail to include a hydrometer, which is a necessity if you wish to have any idea of your ABV in your finished brew, let alone reproduceable results.
Barring that, this is an excellent starter kit.
You’ll need a burner, and a ten gallon/40 quart brew kettle as well, to get started.
***After sanitizing the 6.5 gallon catboy, and standing it upside down in the drying rack, I noticed a casting flaw/crack nearly four inches long. Have contacted seller, and will update after getting their response.
Contacted seller, replacement is on the way already. Great customer service, and I really appreciate someone who stands behind their products.

The kit comes with great instructions. I especially loved the DVD, really simple step-by-steps and quirky add-ons that make it so that you don’t feel like you’re watching an infomercial. If you have somebody in your life who loves craft beer, skip the one-time cheap kits and get this. They will love it!
P.S. Does not come with bottles, or a 5-gallon pot, or a long stirring spoon. Make sure you get those separately!

I recommend getting some Star-San sanitizer, kit only comes with a cleaning solution. A strap carrier for the carboys, I didn’t dare try to pick it up after I transferred the 5 gallons of wort into it. luckily I was able to roll it in the corner and leave it there. Also a wort chiller – takes 15 minutes to cool down and keeps the beer out of the danger zone for contamination.

The one thing to note (not a huge deal) is that the instructions are solid but differ slightly between different papers in the same box. Both papers try to be adaptable to multiple equipment setups and it leads to small overlaps or gaps. Brewer just has to infer or stick with one instruction sheet for clarity. It makes you think if youâve never done this before and thus it makes you understand the process better. A lot of it is an art form so enjoy your own style of brewing.
