If you can make oatmeal, you can make beer. Brooklyn Brew Shop's kitchen-friendly Beer Making Kits makes brewing easy by using only fresh, whole ingredients and traditional methods used in homes and breweries for centuries. By brewing with the same ingredients (malted barley, hops, and yeast) that the best craft breweries in the world use, making high quality and complex beers becomes possible on the stovetop in your very own kitchen, big or small.
Our best-selling beer making kit, The Everyday IPA makes every day a great one. With the perfect balance of fragrant citrus and bright bitterness, this kit will please the hop heads and the first time IPA drinkers alike. Columbus hops impart notes of floral grapefruit and earthy tangerine while the 6.8% Alcohol-by-Volume means you can sip one, or a few to make every day an IPA day.

This kit truly does streamline the process of all grain brewing. If you are considering entering the home-brew family, I would definitely suggest starting with a one gallon kit such as this one. The directions are listed on Brooklyn Brewing's website and are relatively intuitive and accompanied by a helpful video which overviews the whole process in around two minutes. Brewing time is around 3 hours the first day and around an hour on bottling day, about a month start to finish.
Things not in this kit that you'll need:
-A big pot or two! I recommend at least a two gallon stockpot as well as another large pot. Having multiple pots makes heating the mash and hot water for the wort much easier.
-Strainer: Large stainless steal is best. You want one that fits over your big pot comfortably.
-ICE! you'll need to cool your wort quickly in an icebath, The easiest way to do this is in your sink with purchased bag ice. Two bags is plenty.
-Bottles! Gotta put that beer somewhere right? Whatever you do, don't go buy empty swing top bottles or a capping setup for this one batch. If you drink Grolsch, you can simply save the swing tops (it's pretty much the same price as buying empties but you get beer). For the cheaper of us, I recommend just getting two 6 packs of 16oz. A&W root-beer. The bottles are brown which helps keep light from affecting the beer, and PET is fairly oxygen impermeable as plastics go. At any rate, with the fairly short timeline of a month from brew to mouth, you'll not likely notice any oxidation (at least it will be the least of your taste worries on this brewing adventure->spend your time worrying about sanitation instead).
This is a great place to start if you would like to start home brewing. It gives you more of a realistic big boy brewing experience than a Mr. Beer or similar extract brewing kit, and you can easily reuse all the equipment in making other small batches in the future. Realistically, if you really enjoyed brewing, you'll probably end up upgrading to a five gallon setup, but it is nice to have a small fermenter for trying off recipe madness on your own. Don't feel cornered into buying the refills either, They are certainly convenient and Brooklyn's kits produce some really great beer, but you can definitely feel free to go buy ingredients yourself either online or at your local home brew shop (LHBS).
Happy Brewing and Good Luck!
1. After you've heated up your strike water and "mashed in", you can likely turn the heat down on your stove to a 1-2. Just remember to come back about every 10 minutes to take temperature readings, stir and add water if needed. Do not cut the mashing process short, it is VITALLY important to the strength of your beer. ALSO SET A TIMER FOR 60 MINUTES AS SOON AS YOU START.
2. During the last 20 minutes of your mash, begin heating up the additional water. Make sure to read ahead in your steps to save time.
3. When straining the water over the grain, I found that the grain was really sticky (likely due to the age of the grain) and you had to add water SLOWLY. My first time trying to lob all the water in at once resulted in hot grainy water overflowing onto my stove...so take it cup by cup if you have to.
4. Follow your hop schedule to a T. (meaning, if it says add all the columbus hops at the start of the boil, do that)
5. SET A TIMER FOR 60 MINUTES AS SOON AS IT BEGINS TO BOIL. The boil itself doesn't require excessive attention after the "hot break" where it initially begins foaming. I found that after the boil happened, you could crank the heat down a tad to like a 4-5 on my stove. This is also where your whole house may start to smell like beer so crack a window if it's nice out.
6. The "force chill" portion takes FOREVER. Have patience, and do not add yeast if the temperature is above 70 degrees fahrenheit. The instructions should actually tell you to get either a bunch of ice packs or to crank up your ice machine if you can.
7. After you've added the yeast and set up your blowoff tube, nothing might happen for awhile. "Primary" fermentation where everything starts going crazy may happen during the first 1-2 days so again, be patient.
8. Do not open or smell your fermentor unnecessarily.
9. Fermentation takes 2 weeks. Do not rush this process.
10. Bottling day, if it's your first time with the gravity siphon will be a messy nightmare. I highly recommend starting off just siphoning water for practice. Or get an auto-siphon, it's really not that difficult once you get the hang of it. And DO NOT SUCK UP THE YEAST AT THE BOTTOM.
11. Do not use excess priming sugar. You do not want your bottles exploding and your precious beer to be ruined.
12. Allow your bottles to condition for 2 weeks. Seriously, I know it's difficult to wait but the carbonation between 1 week and 2 week is literally night and day.
13. Refrigerate the night before you want to drink, don't pour the last few drops since some residual yeast will likely be there, and enjoy!
This hobby is addictive, and once you get used to the process it all starts to flow together. There's a charming, almost blue collar satisfaction in drinking a beer YOU brewed or having someone else try it and go "wow, you made this?". There are also a lot of nuances that you get into later, but the fact that as a first-timer you're brewing all-grain is intense enough. Brooklyn brew shop makes an amazing kit, their marketing is extremely user friendly and I was BEYOND stoked to make this beer.
Additional helpful hints after about 8 months and many batches of beer later:
-Get a ton of ice packs and have them cold before you start. The cooldown process is important, and the quicker you get your beer to 70, the better.
-If I were to do the everyday IPA kit again, I'd change the hop schedule so all of the columbus goes in at 60 and all of the chinook hops go in at 10.
-Use store bought spring water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER!!!!!!!!!
-Light can oxidize the beer, so cover your carboy up with a black shirt or something like that. Also try to keep it in a cupboard, closet or somewhere dark. Don't open it up to smell it.
-Red Baron Bottle Capper <- Get a bottle capper with some caps. Do not use corona bottles for bottling, make sure you use amber bottles to keep light out.
-The siphoning process is made easier by having a friend prevent the siphon from touching the yeast cake. Plan accordingly.
-Want to make your process easier? Get an auto-siphon.
