I recently got into homebrewing, and it all started with a couple of these kits from Brooklyn Brew Shop (their Bourbon Dubbel and Spring Lager). They show you that despite what you may read out there, it's not necessary to "ease into" brewing by starting with malt extracts, which I consider the equivalent of "baking a cake" using a boxed cake mix. If you buy the cake mix, add an egg and some milk, and pop it in the oven, did you REALLY bake a cake yourself??? If you say yes, then go ahead and buy a Mr. Beer kit with its pre-hopped malt extract and easy no-boil method, or better yet, go buy yourself some Bud Light and be done with it.
If, on the other hand, you enjoy REAL beer and are actually INTERESTED in the process of brewing and how it works, this kit is an excellent way to jump right in by DOING it. They tell you WHAT to do, you do it, and you get very good beer out of it. THEN you can learn more about the significance of the various steps by doing your own research. I found it very satisfying to just start a batch right away, and then to read up on the significance of the steps I had taken later on, knowing that I had ALREADY successfully performed them. I now feel confident in my brewing. Brewing all-grain does not have to be intimidating, despite the impression you get from many of the books and websites out there. This kit gets you started doing all the same basic steps that real brewers do.Read more ›
The kit comes with MOST of what you'll need to start homebrewing, but WILL REQUIRE some additional equipment. Specifically, you'll also want to buy/have on hand:
- A six to eight quart stock pot, like this Cuisinart 766-26 Chef's Classic 12-Quart Stockpot with Cover (click link for smaller sizes)
- A funnel - cheap plastic will work, but you'll want to eventually upgrade to one with a strainer like this MIU France Polished Stainless Steel Funnel with Strainer.
- A mesh sieve, like this OXO Good Grips 8-Inch Double Rod Strainer, or cheesecloth (messier, but works).
- Something to bottle in. You can just grab a cap for your gallon fermenter, or use flip-top bottles like these CASE OF 12 - 16 oz. EZ Cap Beer Bottles - AMBER.Read more ›
I have this kit and have made six batches so far. All were excellent. I really love how easy this system is and best of all its all grain! No nasty extracts etc. that plague the first time brewer's early trials. If you get the book you'll get 52 more recipes and can continue to make brews by buying grains and hops yourself. The best part about this system is how manageable it is on the smaller scale and how much fun it can be. If you wind up with 10 bottles of great tasting beer that's a success! If you wind up with a bad batch, then at least you don't have 5 gallons (about 50 bottles worth) wasted which is the standard size in about 95% of home brewing. Furthermore, you can buy additional 1 gallon jugs online or at a supply store for about $4.50 and brew multiple batches at the same time. By the way -- did I mention the IPA that resulted from this kit was spectacular? If you can follow the directions -- you can make great beer.
This is a really great kit and I love it. People need to get over their thermometers being broken!
P.S. My thermometer was intact when the package arrived :P Even so, I still spent $10 on a clip on thermometer because its easier to use.
