Comes with almost everything but you will still need to order a couple inexpensive items to be complete.
-5 gallon stainless steel brew pot. ( I paid $15 @ Family Dollar)
- 24" stainless steel spoon for stirring your brew.
- hydrometer test jar. Kit does not come with one
- Beer thief, taking samples
- more cleaner, iodophor is what I ordered.
- 5 gallon secondary carboy fermentor.
- thermometer. I picked mine up at the local Meijer. $10 digital meat thermometer.
These are a few extra items I picked up. You don't necessarily need these items but they make brew like a heck of a lot easier.
Beer brewing is a simple process. It doesn't matter how fancy your equipment is - as long as you have some buckets, tubes, and a syphon, you're good to go! This both an excellent starter kit for someone new to brewing, as well as a great brewing kit for even the most experienced brewer! The only additional equipment you will need are:
- Large metal brewpot (10 gallons if you are brewing 5 gallon batches)
- Large metal spoon
- beer ingredients
- additional sanitizer (StarSan is my preferred)
- Thermometer (a thermometer used for making candy works well, as it is meant to be in hot liquid)
In addition, I recommend a better hydrometer, as it can be really helpful to have accurate readings. A wort chiller will also help you cool down the beer quickly to avoid risk of contamination.
Brewing beer is an incredibly fun and rewarding hobby, and this is the best product you can get to start out!
One lesson learned though is that if you think you will keep doing homebrews in the future, I would invest in the equipment a la carte, and buy glass carboys instead of this plastic bucket. The other downside is that this only includes one plastic fermentor (bucket), and certain beer recipes call for a secondary fermentor. I was able to buy a 6 gallon bucket and lid for $8 at a goods store to amplify this kit. However, after 3 brews, the buckets began to retain the hoppy odor. This is why you may want to consider going for glass carboys - easier to clean and don't retain the smell.
If you are tentative about the whole homebrew thing, this kit is definitely for you. It's a great value and gets you into the game for the best price. From there, you can see if you want to upgrade as you go!
On the plus side, the 6.5 gallon fermenting bucket lid had a tight fit and a pre-drilled hole with a grommet for the airlock making it very easy to monitor the fermentation process while maintaining a sanitary environment. I found this much more convenient than fermenting in a 5 gallon glass carboy with a rubber stopper and blow off tube. And the auto siphon worked great for transferring the beer from the fermenting bucket to the bottling bucket without stirring up the yeast and hops sediment at the bottom of the fermenter. Clean up was easy too.
I cracked open my first bottle 4 weeks after starting a batch (2 weeks in fermenter, 2 weeks in bottles) using this kit for the first time and it was the best ale I've made so far. No sediment at the bottom of the bottle, and it had a thick, creamy head and carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass from the first sip to the last,
