Our Deluxe kit features a pair of large glass bottles, called carboys, as vessels in a two-stage fermentation process. The additional equipment and extra steps taken with the Deluxe Starter Kit reward the brewer with clearer, clean-tasting beer, as well as the ability to brew a wider range of styles as your confidence grows and sudsy repertoire expands! HERE'S THE FUN PART! Every starter kit comes complete with your choice of recipe kits. Just pick one of the three classic recipes below and you'll have all the ingredients you need to take your new gear out for a test drive.
Caribou Slobber Brown Ale Your new favorite session beer. Dense layers of malt, caramel, baking chocolate, and a hint of light-roast coffee give way to reveal a hop character you'll be surprised to find if you're used to drinking English brown ale.
Fresh Squished IPA Dripping with vivid flavors, Fresh Squished is the beer equivalent of visiting your local fruit stand. Flavors and aromas of grapefruit, melon, berries, lime and passion fruit drizzle into a faint herbal, piney background. The sturdy malt foundation of sweet crystal malts and toasty Munich concedes to this indulgent use of Citra and Mosaic hops to achieve remarkable balance.
Irish Red Ale If you're looking for a perfectly balanced, crowd-pleasing pint, you can't go wrong with our Irish Red Ale. There's a reason this kit is our best seller. Actually, three reasons: great, medium-bodied taste, rich coppery color and enticingly low aging requirements.
Bavarian Hefeweizen Brew up a batch of our Bavarian Hefeweizen, and you'll feel the call of a traditional Bier Hall in every sip. This foolproof beer recipe kit yields a medium-bodied, malty and spicy brew, with a smooth mouthfeel and dense, whipped-cream head. A shining, hand-crafted example of Bavaria's signature brew.
Required but not included: a 5-gallon kettle and roughly 50 empty 12oz beer bottles that accept pry-off caps.

Note: Testing the specific gravity of your batch with a hydrometer is the best way to keep tabs on fermentation and for us to help troubleshoot by phone or email. We highly recommend adding our Mad Brewer Upgrade Kit or Brewery Essentials Gravity Testing Kit.

All of the supplies were as advertised. I think it is one of the best start up kits available. However, as a startup kit, I would have expected a more detailed description of the equipment and their function for the beginner.
Bought it for my friend as a house warming gift and she loved it!
What a great experience I had doing this with my Family member! Very straight forward and plenty of instructions to help get you going!!
As I’m just getting started into brewing, I found this kit had everything and more that I needed to get started. I especially appreciate the blow off tube for making higher gravity beers. The only thing I would add to it is some Star San and you’d really have almost everything you need to brew and bottle your own batch.
Everything you need to start brewing!!! Great instruction and fun to do. Also have great customer service with Midwest Supplies!
