I've brewed four of the "trew brew" kits already and this is by far the best. The result is a smooth and flavorful porter. I've found the other "all malt" kits begin to taste the same, but this porter really shines. I would highly recommend it for a first timer as it is easy and the result is spectacular. Also a great kit to experiment with...

I've brewed a dozen batches and this one is my favorite. It's such a lengthy process to go through and not be happy with the result. Black deliciousness! Not a complicated process either. I bottled it on Sunday and it has carbonated by Wednesday. Be sure with ales to get the temp down before you add the yeast. Ale yeast can be killed at 90 degrees. Happy brewing!

This kit was my first attempt at a home brew. It turned out great! Porters are not my favorite style of beer, but I was advised at the local brew shop that this was an easy beer for a first timer. After 3 weeks of fermentation and 2 weeks of bottle conditioning, it tastes excellent. I brewed with the K6 kit and will be doing my next brew tomorrow.

I have been brewing for years and I still keep coming back to this one. It's so easy to make and really tastes amazing! I keep getting asked when the next time the porter will be around. I am on my 5th batch of this one. Just to change it up a bit I added 2 oz of vanilla extract. Most people use between 3 and 6 oz of the extract. But this one is so good I didn't want to tweet it too much! Good luck!!

i have brewed this kit twice now. the instructions are mostly easy to follow (there's no mention of what to do with the maltodextrin, but it's not tough to figure it out by reading up elsewhere), but the boil directions are spot-on and the kit comes with everything you'll need except bottles. fermentation is fast fast with this kit as well. on the second brew, active fermentation was done after 3 days, and it was ready to transfer at just 7 days.

we added about 3/4 of the maltodextrin pack to each brew, as it produces a thicker and creamier feel. the priming sugar carbonated the first batch in bottles after 10 days, but the flavor continued to evolve for an additional two weeks after that. the end result of the first batch was a tasty, coffee malt flavor with a slight bitter hop and a frothy head. it had that yeasty flavor common with homebrew, possibly because we waited the full two weeks to rack the first batch off the yeast bed when it was actually ready to rack off after just one week. the second batch is currently awaiting kegging in a secondary fermentation carboy, so we'll see if that flavor was avoided this time around.

in all, this is a good beginner kit at a decent price. fermentation is strong with dry yeast pitched directly into the carboy, and it carbonated perfectly with the included ingredients. not much to screw up in this one, so if you're new to the wonderful world of homebrew, this is a great place to start.

update - 1/11/16
we kegged the second batch of this porter over the weekend, and it accepted force-carbonation very well in the 1/6 barrel sanke keg. after 12 hours of occasional agitation at 20-25psi, we purged the keg and reduced pressure to about 12psi, and let it sit for another 48 hours.

Delicious brew and easy to follow instructions. Most of the fermentation was accomplished in the first two days - my bubbler was going off like an old percolator coffee maker. Like other reviews nite, the malt can should be placed in warm water for an hour or so. I yielded 48 bottles.

Great kit. The instruction for the malto-dexrin need to also say it should be pre-disolved in warm water, then cooled, before adding at bottling. Mine clumped up and did not do its job :( Tip: don't stir the yeast AT ALL.
