Ordered and received kit in Jan 2011. Started brewing March 3 2011, drank first bottle around April 4. Bavarian Hefweizen, very good taste, about 5-6 percent alcohol or 10-12 proof. Must follow directions and keep everything clean. Quality kit contained everyting to make your first brew, but I've added a few things like hops bags and thermometer and extra bottle caps. I do not recommend buying inexpensive kits. I also recommend buying "Joy of Home Brewing" to go along with the kit. The kit directions are basic, the book has helpful tips. The price I paid was better than what I would pay locally, in this area, by about $40. I prefered new bottles, as I didn't want to mess with finding and cleaning bottles with non twist off caps. Extra 12 oz. bottles run about $12 for 24 bottles. First batch figures out to about $3 per bottle, which includes the cost of the kit. After that it's about 50 cents a bottle. As a side note, I started my second batch May 19. Enjoy! :)

In general, I'd recommend that you would go to a local brewing store and work out exactly what you need and want to get started brewing your own beer. You'd likely end up with a setup that is pretty similar to this one. That leaves price and flexibility as the main issues. Glancing at a brewing catalog, it looks like this setup isn't a bad deal pricewise. And of course if you don't have a local brewing store, then buying this one is that much easier. Do compare the items included in any of these kits, there are a lot of them listed on amazon, some for as little as half of the price of this one. And remember that you can save a lot of shipping cost by buying kits without bottles. Use your own collected bottles.

After trying to figure out which beer kit to order, I finally settled on this one. Now we know it is a bit more expensive than the others, but let me tell you, my package arrived yesterday and in good order. The items themselves were packed nicely, not one thing broken.

Following the booklet that comes along with the kit made things simple, very simple. My first batch is sitting in the fermentation bucket as we speak. The only piece of advice I can give..use a pot bigger than 8qt :) Trust me on this one. I didn't have a bigger one, so I cheated. I split it between two pots and joined them together once the foaming/bubbling over stopped. (Which, by the way, the book warns you about).

Anyways, I would recommend this kit to anyone who wants to make their own beer. Simple to use, easy to read. What more do you want?

Overall a great kit, but it came shipped with a broken Hydrometer and siphon... been unable to contact the company to get it replaced. I couldn't wait any longer so I made my first batch this weekend and I had everything I needed for the first part. I'm going to have to get creative with the transfer from the one bucket to the other. Would be a 5 star if the parts were packaged better or they would respond to the broken parts.

Everything needed to complete your first batch without purchasing anything else. The kit came with an Amber ale that was super easy to make. One can get the same basic kit and save a bunch of money in shipping if they collect their own pop top bottles or go purchase them from the lhbs. Just be prepared to want to get more stuff if you enjoy the process, and if you don't, I'm sure it will still be a blast discovering how much you hate brewing your own beer--invite a buddy to help out!

If you have the extra cash, I highly recommend a 5 gallon or larger pot and big stirring spoon for making your wort. It can be done without, it's just more work.

I'm very happy with my purchase and have rediscovered my love beer--especially when it's yours.

I bought this gift for my son-in-law. He loves it.. He bottles his beer and distributes around the family. This is a definite winner for whatever occasion.

This was a great starter kit with only one issue it did not come with the C-Brite Sanitizer 8-Pack listed. In the kit was B-Bright cleaner which is not a Sanitizer. Which as a new brewer I did not know the difference so my first batch spoiled and soured with in three weeks of bottling. Thank goodness I caught my mistake before I brewed my second batch. Now 12 batches later not one bad bottle of beer. Make sure you get the sanitizer.

We looked at many beer-making kits for our son-in-law for his birthday on Dec, 22, and ordered this one, but it didn't arrive until Dec. 23rd so he got it for Christmas instead! He was so thrilled and just finished making his first batch of beer which must age for a month. They have not gotten to taste it yet, but he told us how much he learned from the process of making it himself. You get 48 empty bottles that ship in two boxes and the kit comes separately. I am assuming that everything he needed was in the kit. We debated whether to get a wine-making kit or beer, and we are glad we chose the beer-making set.
