I recently got I to brewing my own beer. After looking at many brew kits I decided to go with this one. The cost is far less for this then similar kits.
Comes with almost everything but you will still need to order a couple inexpensive items to be complete.

-5 gallon stainless steel brew pot. ( I paid $15 @ Family Dollar)
- 24" stainless steel spoon for stirring your brew.
- hydrometer test jar. Kit does not come with one
- Beer thief, taking samples
- more cleaner, iodophor is what I ordered.
- 5 gallon secondary carboy fermentor.
- thermometer. I picked mine up at the local Meijer. $10 digital meat thermometer.

These are a few extra items I picked up. You don't necessarily need these items but they make brew like a heck of a lot easier.

This kit is perfect for those of you who are new to home brewing or thinking about upgrading from a smaller batch size fermenter. It is just as easy to use as some of the smaller size begginer home brew kits, but it has a few more advanced tools that really let you customize and create better home brewed beer. The products that come with the kit all seem to be of high quality and everything arrived packed neatly and in good shape. The instructions are very easy to follow and guide you every step of the way. It really isn't much harder to use than the smaller 2 gallon begginner kits. The instructions teach you the process with an easy basic, but tasty, brew. It then gives you a recipe for most of the major styles of beer. All you will need is an ingredient kit, a big pot to brew in, bottles, and a few utensils to cook with and this kit will have all you need to make great beer. Cheers!

I originally had a Mr. Beer, but returned it for something a little more hands-on. Found this and bought it and have no regrets. It comes with pretty much everything you need to get started (I'll let you know what else I bought later). Everything in the product description was in the kit.

Besides the beer ingredients, you need to separately get these things (unless you already have them, which I didn't):

Nylon Grain Bag
Strainer (or just reuse your grain bag)
5 gallon pot
Bottles
Caps
Thermometer (it comes with one, but it's a sticker that you place on your fermenting bucket)
Mash Tun/Cooler (optional, but recommended)
Star Sans (a sanitizer)

The reason I gave this 4 stars was because my airlock was broken when received and it comes with cleaner which is pretty much useless.

Got this brew kit for my brother in-law for Christmas. He loves it! So far we have made 3 batches using this kit and they have turned out pretty good. One of the batches kind of was skunky, but we thing it was improper sanitation of the bottles. The only issue is that we have already replaced some of the pieces. Not that they broke but because the items we replaced them with are better quality. I think we replaced the plastic carboy with a glass one. This is a very good product for beginners to learn the steps. If you continue to brew you may want to upgrade your equipment sooner that expected. Just remember #1 rule of brewing: Sanitation is KEY.

Bought this kit because of good reviews and because it was used in many shows of home brewing, the auto siphon is a very useful addition in respect to other kits as it simplifies pouring the beer in between containers. I would have given it five stars but the knob on the spigot is just not strong enough and it broke after little use (be sure hold the whole knob and not just the tip and you'll do fine) but it still works. I'd recommend it to anyone as the quality is very good

happy brewing :)

On my 4th tour so far on this beer making soldier of a kit.It is what it says it is.It works.The spigot leaked a little when I used the bottling bucket for a secondary but I was the tough guy who installed it so...The spigot also is longer than the height of the hole from the ground.Meaning it smashes itself into the pavement at a right angle.The siphon pump works great.The bottle capper is easy.The bottling wand is nice.The airlock got a couple of cracks and needed replacement.AND WHY CAN"T "TWO" BUCKETS COME WITH "TWO" LIDS.

The kit is good enough quality. I bought this after a friend showed me how to brew on a similar kit, so this was my first batch on my own. Some words of warning. First, the cleaning solution that comes with this kit is NOT a sanitizer. Second, make sure to install your airlock before placing the lid on your fermentation chamber. The rubber grommet can come lose and fall into your freshly fermenting wort.

Have done several batches with this setup and it has been perfect! Sanitation is key with any home brewing, and this setup is easy to clean! Comes with almost everything needed for successful brewing.

Only complaint is hydrometer has been off since day 1, however, it has been consistent in how far it is off, so calculating original gravity and final gravity has not been difficult. I calibrate each time I brew. Make sure you tighten the nut to the spigot on the bottling bucket well, or it will leak.

For higher gravity beers (1.070+) I would recommend not using the airlock included and instead use the tubing provided and put the other end into a bottle of water or a soda bottle with water in it. This airlock has filled with wort and I almost blew the lid right off of it!

Happy Brewing!
