A Repeat Customer Review by Liv

(Posted on 12/3/14)

Product Rating:

Last Christmas, I bought my fiance this kit. I know nothing about beer brewing and next to nothing about beer in general. I called Midwest's customer service for advice and the man who helped me was both knowledgeable and friendly. He directed me to this kit and I never looked back.

This kit is great and very user friendly. For two beer brewing rookies, the DVD and written instructions were easy to follow and our first batch came out great! Midwest gives you everything you need to get started in this enjoyable hobby.

Needless to say, when my dad mentioned that he would like to get into wine making a few weeks ago, I knew exactly where to go for his Christmas present! I just ordered a wine making starter kit from Midwest and I am sure that I will not be disappointed! I will be a repeat customer as long as I have men in my life who want to brew!

Thank you!

Great Kit Review by Dave

I purchased this kit with both upgrades and was very happy to find i had everything I could possible need to start brewing. The only additions I would recommend to this kit is a sanitizer. The quality and price of the kit were great and everything shipped the next day so i was brewing the same week i ordered.

Pretty good kit overall Review by David

Good kit in general. It has everything you need to get started (less a kettle of course). I bottled my first batch of homebrew, and the capper works great. My only complaint was was the bottling wand. It doesn't quite stop the flow completely, so it makes a bit of a mess when you go from bottle to bottle. I think I will upgrade to a spring loaded wand from my local shop, but you can still work with this set.

Good Beer...Period Review by Imperial Blonde

I borrowed the brew kit from my Pastor with some reserved thoughts of brewing my own beer when I can just go to the liquor store and pick through hundreds of kinds of beers.... Well, I can honestly say it was worth the process even though this is a "beginners" kit. This beer tastes as good or better than any beer you can buy in a store.

The only knock on my first batch is that it left my lips a little sticky after drinking, otherwise I love it.

Good Purchase Review by Brandon

I was impressed with the quality of this kit. I went with the glass carboy despite the weight and glad I did. It is high quality and will last forever. I would suggest getting a thief to go along with this kit as it would make it easier to take a gravity reading with rather that the plastic beaker that comes with the kit. Also, make sure to get a good sanitizer to sanitize all equipment before it comes into contact with the wort. The siphon also works well.

Has everything you need Review by Kurtis

I purchased this starter kit after doing a lot of research on other kits and decided to go with this one due to the price and what all it includes. I recieved it and everything was in order. I cleaned all of the components and found the bottle filler was leaking out of one side but Midwest supplier shipped a new one out immediately to me and I received it the next day. All in all this had everything I needed and I was very happy with the price and quality of everything. I am in the middle of brewing my first batch and am very excited to bottle it and get my second one going.

With a carboy and a better bottle I can brew twice a month. 2 weeks in the primary, 2 in the secondary, then bottle it. This kit meets all my brewing needs.

Great Kit Review by Chris

This was my first kit and is what starting my home brewing. Comes with everything you need to get started except a burner and kettle if you don't have that already. It would also be nice if it came with some sanitizer since it already comes with some cleaner but no worries still great.

If your going with the plastic carboy, know that you will not receive the carboy brush noted in the description as you don't use one to clean the plastic carboys, they scratch easy leaving open places for bacteria to hide. Just soak with some unscented oxyclean solution filled to top overnight and next day its spotless.

I just got it and made my first beer Review by Sean
