Product Description

Amazon.com

In just 14 days, beginning and advanced brewers alike can enjoy a glass of premium, handcrafted beer with this home-brewing kit. The 2-1/2-gallon brewing keg features a pour tap and wide-mouth lid for easy cleaning by hand. Included in this starter kit are a can of Classic American Light mix, which produces twenty 12-ounce bottles of mild, full-bodied beer. The beer-making ingredients are simply mixed with water, left to brew in the keg at room temperature for a week, and then put into bottles (not included) for another week, during which time natural carbonation takes place. No carbon-dioxide cartridges are needed to enhance sparkle or beer head. Other Mr. Beer mixes and booster packs can be ordered separately. The keg is made of FDA-compliant PVC, which does not impart taste or color, and is virtually indestructible. --Ann Bieri

I received the Mr. Beer kit for Xmas, and it's a good system overall. It serves as a very good introduction to home brewing, but it does have some downsides as well.

Good bits:
-The system is about as easy as it could be.
-The instructions are clear and simple.
-The fermenting tank is small (2 gallons), meaning that you don't have to wait around for a long time to taste the final product. With your more normal 5 gallon kits, you have to bottle a LOT of beer, and wait a bit longer for fermentation.
-There's dozens of mixes available on their homepage, and they offer a lot of quality products at reasonable prices. Join their club to avoid the expensive shipping charges.

Not so good bits:
-The fermenter is almost too simple. A proper airlock design would make it more foolproof as to tell when fermenting is complete, as well as avoiding contamination of the beer.
-The included mixes, while of good quality, produce a rather poor beer by comparison to what it is possible to make with the kit. Their website has a lot better product than what they include in the kit, and this gives some people bad impressions of the kit itself. The fault is not with the kit, but with the very basic starter beer in the package. The separate mixes they sell in stores are not much better, being all very basic brews. They're not bad, but they're not great either. Mediocre at best.
-Sterilization (which is possibly the most important part of home brewing) is difficult because the fermenter is not dishwasher safe. A higher quality plastic that could stand high temperatures would be a better overall choice for the fermenting keg, since automatic dishwashers are a great way to sterilize your equipment easily.

Having read most of the reviews here for Mr. Beer I felt I would add my two cents. I have brewed beer using the standard "medieval sorcery" kit that is advertised on most homebrew websites and with the Mr. Beer kit. Having done both, I prefer the Mr. Beer kit. The Mr. Beer kit is a great introduction to brewing. You can make it as simple as you want or do more complicated things with it as well. It is simply a scaled-down, stand-alone, and single-stage fermenter. If you want to do a full boil on your wort, add fruits etc. and use it for that, it can work just as well as any other plastic pail. The nice thing for beginners is that it comes with nearly everything for brewing your first beer for half the price of even the cheapest "starter" kits at most brew shops. The thing that I like about it versus other systems is that it makes a smaller amount, takes up less space, and Mr. Beer, as a company, is really dedicated to making homebrewing simple and fun. I have emailed them with various questions and comments, and their service has been impeccable. They have some great recipes and products available, all scaled down to a more manageable size in my opinion. I think the system itself is acceptable quality. The keg is sturdy enough, dark colored to protect against UV, and the spicket works well. The venting system at first seemed to be a little on the cheap side (airlock would probably be better, particularly in judging when fermentation is complete-earlier models had them), but I have had no problems with beer spoilage. Mr. Beer is a great place to start (and stay) if you are looking to start brewing your own beer as a hobby and not spend hours cleaning equipment, preparing mashes/worts to precise temperatures, and spending an hour bottling 5 gallons worth of beer every three weeks.

I got the Mr. Beer kit from a buddy a few weeks before Christmas, and have been having an absolute blast with it! By far the best Christmas present I got this year.
The nice part about Mr. Beer is that the standard recipe process is very easy to do (read: very hard to screw up). This gives an inexperienced brewer like me the confidence to be imaginitive and creative, while keeping the chances of really messing up a batch pretty low. I've already done standard ales, honey wheat ale, and honey-apple ale. All taste very good, and the taste continues to improve!!
This is a MUST-have gift for any die-hard beer drinker!!

Overall, I think this is a good product. It worked quite well and the instructions were clear and easy to understand. In my opinion, I made good beer on my first attempt. I will continue to try the other recipes.

Evaluating this on taste is purely subjective and highly biased on what you consider as good beer. The first batch is an Ale, not a lager like most americans prefer to drink. Most store bought beer is also over carbonated so it can sit on the shelf. If you have bad results, one of three things occurred; didn't follow instructions/recomendations, malt/yeast product was old, or simply you don't like the style of beer. Ale is fermented at warmer temperatures than lager so it will taste different.

If cheap plain beer is want you are after, this is not for you. You are better off going to the liquor store. If you want to try different styles and obsess over the process, ingredients and the taste, you will like this.

The thing I like the most is the 2 gallon batch size. Its not too big. - I don't drink very often or a lot at any one time so w/ only 2 gallons I won't have a lot drink before the next batch. Especially if its not my favorite type and since making it is half of the fun anyhow.

By trade, I am a Chemical Process Engineer so I am analytical, methodical and deliberate in every thing I do. If you are anything like me and you like beer made at micro breweries you will enjoy this product!
