First Time Brewer
Received this starter brew kit as a Christmas gift. I am new to the brewing world and was overwhelmed by the mass amounts of information out there in the world of brewing. Midwest�?���s clear and concise instructions helped this amateur enjoy the brewing process from beginning to end and turn out a great product that I can enjoy and brag about. _x000D__x000D_Everything included in this starter kit was useful and much needed in the entire process. Thanks Midwest for a great product!!! WIll be back again and again! _x000D_

Excellent Starting Place
I got this from my wife for Christmas and it has been awesome. It comes with everything you need to start brewing quality beer. Mine came with a S-type airlock instead of the shown 3 piece type. I am okay with this since I kind of prefer the S-type. The sanitezer it came with has been enough to do 2 full batches. Remeber that you can save the mixed sanitizer for a week (longer in the fridge). I have since built my own cooler mash tun and am starting to use that. _x000D__x000D_If you're on the fence, buy this now!

Great Starter Kit
I have been through the entire process with this kit now. Everything worked very well... Even the bottle capper. Not sure why people have a problem with it. I practiced on a few empty bottles and got the hang of it after about three. I thought it worked great and went fast. The only extra equipment I really suggest getting is a wine thief for taking samples and checking SG with your hydrometer and a bottle of sanitizer like StarSan. Do not fear the foam! If you have questions about anything I also suggest going to the Home Brew Talk online forum. They can answer any questions and give you some great tips on how to use this equipment. This is a great kit for starting the hobby and making any beer you want assuming you already have the kettle like I did.

Great starter kit
Great starter kit for someone moving up to 5gals, and not a lot of extras to buy if you don't already have them.

A good starter kit
I picked up one for my brother in law. The kit has all you need to make good beer. All components are functional. No need to spend a lot of money on other stuff, start with this. After a year, if you are still brewing, you can decide on how to replace or upgrade anything you don't like.

Great Beginner's Kit!
Bought this kit to get started brewing beer. The kit has everything you need to get started except for the kettle and a thermometer. The kettle is kind of a personal matter depending how big you need and what you use as a heating source. I bought a stainless steel 20 Qt. A good buy!

Add option to upgrade components
My first batch is currently fermenting in the �?��?Brewing Starter Kit w/Better Bottle�?��� I bought from Midwest. Overall, the kit looks to be of good quality. Perhaps Midwest could make some upgrades possible (with an appropriate price increase) when buying a brew kit. I would have appreciated the option to upgrade from the Black Beauty Bottle Capper to the Red Baron Bottle Capper, and from the 5/16 inch auto-siphon to the ?_ inch auto-siphon. (why not include a test jar?)

Starter kit
I have ordered a starter kit and I have previously bought one and it is a good product. I have been using it for 2 years and it is still producing for me. Would recommend it.

Can this kit be used to make wine too? I see there is brewing kits and Wine kits. My buddy bought this kit and he is using it to make wine now, but it says its a brewing kit...
S A on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Many of the components of this kit can be used for wine too. However, you'd need to get a corker and corks, as well as the necessary stabilizing and clarifying agents for wine.

How many bottles does this kit produce?
R O on Jun 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This brewing starter kit is set up for making 5-gallon batches of beer, which is the "standard" batch of homebrew, typically. 5 gallons of beer is just over 2 cases of beer, about 48-52 12 oz bottles. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
Does this starter kit come with the ingredients for a brew (Front Porch Pale recipe kit)?
N A on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, but the "Platinum Pro" starter kit does. http://www.midwestsupplies.com/platinum-pro-beer-brewing-starter-kit.html The "Brewing Starter Kit" comes with a glass carboy and some other items; the "Platinum Pro" has no carboy, but does have a brew pot and a Front Porch Pale Ale kit to get you started. Both are good starter kits, but they have some key differences. - Mike W, Midwest Supplies
Hi Guys or Gals , im interested in brewing. I would like to be able to brew 15 gallons at a time. Do you have a starter kit that maybe i could add some equipment too , so i could brew 5 gallons at a time back to back , so i would have the 15 gallons all ready to bottle at the same time ? Thanks Rob
A S on Feb 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Howdy Rob,

Thank you for choosing Midwest! You could go with any of our starter kits and simply add extra fermenters to the order such as a bucket, big mouth bubbler, or 6 gallon carboy! Depending on the beer, you will want 2 fermenters per beer so that you can rack for a secondary fermentation. I would probably go with the Platinum Pro starter kit, or the Brewing Starter Kit. I hope that this helps, let us know if you have any further questions!
I know I woul dhave to alter the recipes I use, but could I brew a 2 gallon batch using the equipment in this kit?
B Q on Feb 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Ben,

You could make a 2 gal batch in this equipment. I wouldn't recommend it though since you would have a lot of head space. I would recommend using 3 gal carboys instead.
