Tiring of buying pre-packaged hard apple cider and too often not able to find the brands I like, I decided to give the Mr. Beer Cider Making system a try.

First off, it was missing a rubber washer for the valve. Otherwise though, the cider 'wort' preparation was straightforward and the process from beginning to end went without a hitch. Two weeks later, I bottled the brew. Two weeks after that, I tried my first sample.

Plus side: It was nicely fizzy and had some bite. Downside? It was wan and lacking in flavor or character. It tasted almost watered down.

In the meantime, some web searching revealed there are lots of other ways to do simple home brewing -- including just getting some lager yeast, inexpensive 'air-locks' and rubber stoppers from a local brew shop, and adding some sugar (optional) to two $8 gallon jugs of organic unfiltered apple juice from the local Whole Foods. A few weeks later, I used the recycled Mr. Beer empties to bottle the new stuff -- and it was way, way better.

In short, my assessment is the Mr. Beer kit isn't a bad way to get started, and definitely a decent holiday or birthday gift... but there are better ways to go if you want good tasting hard apple cider.

They couldn't have made the process simpler. I love my homebrewing kit. I was delighted that it exceeded my expectations. Everything I needed was in there, just add water and sugar to brew. It included bottles to house my cider, pint glasses, labels for my bottles, etc. You name it, it was included. The price point was fantastic and it is an ideal kit for anyone venturing into the world of home brewing. I highly recommend it. While I bought it for cider, I can use it to make cider, beer, wine, mead, any manner of fermented beverages. In addition to being a fun process, it saves me money, and I can craft exactly the drink I want.
Any budding brewmeister would be well-served to start with this kit.

This is kind of a fun kit for folks who like the idea of home brewing, but don't have the time time, space or knowledge to get started. We've had this kit for a couple years and have made a few batches. It's an easy, straight-forward process. The directions are quite clear. It does take quite a bit of time and patience for the product to ferment. The biggest issue for me is the amount of time it takes to clean and sanitize this kit. You really want to make sure you do a good job, but be prepared to scrub, boil, and scrub some more.

The kit comes up with a 2-gallon "keg," bottles, brewing supplies, and some cool Mr Beer pint glasses. You will want to buy a funnel for filling. Also make sure you have a dry, temperate place to keep the product as it ferments. We keep ours in the basement while we wait.

The final product is good but not great. It makes 8 16-oz bottles of cider. It's got a tangy cider flavor, but it's no WoodChuck. I would say this kit is a fun afternoon project, but certainly hasn't replaced our trips to the corner store. My friends who are home brew enthusiasts kind of laughed me off when I said I was trying Mr. Beer. From what I understand, some brewers use the MR Beer keg for small and sample batches.

This product does a good job of teaching the fundamentals of brewing practice. This may be a great introduction for folks who are interested in beginning home brewing.

Kit was damaged in transit. Not worth making a big issue over. Kit is fine, the fact that I can use it for beer is even better.

I've used Mr. Beer in the past with no issues, but this particular kit was not to the quality I expected.

This seemed to be either very old product or not stored correctly. After adding the yeast it started fermenting and then stopped after a couple of hours. I stirred to try and get going again all to no avail. I let it sit for 24 hours and then added a new packet of yeast that I had (make lots of wine). Fermentation started immediately and has now reached .990 specific gravity.

So it was either bad yeast (unlikely), or an old kit (probably as it had an offer that expired 3 or 4 months ago).

I bought this as a present for my fiance for christmas, I was so excited to see how it worked. He started it last night and just now i noticed the canister is completely empty. The cheap plastic spicket has leaked and the fermented liquid has gone everywhere! All over his softball bag and my floor! Hugely disappointed!

**UPDATE- contacted amazon with my issue, and they sent out a replacement which will be here in 2 days!!! Now that's customer service!

This is a great starter kit. If you have thought about brewing cider then you should try this out. It's a great introduction to cider brewing. If you don't like brewing with this kit you may not like actual cider brewig. It makes a 2 gallon batch. The refills are $20 each, so 2 gallons of beer for $20 is a really good deal. The great thing is the cider is very good.
