Embark on your homebrewing journey with the best home brewing kit in history. The Deluxe Brewing Starter Kit has been tested by our employees and trusted by our customers for the past 20 years. Customer feedback has made this Brewery in a Box what it is today - the staple of every brew cave from essential to exploratory.
We've built this all-inclusive home brew kit to be fun and foolproof with some of the most trusted instruction in homebrewing. Rest assured that no matter what your method of learning, your first homebrew is a guaranteed success.
Folks tend to become very passionate about homebrewing after a batch or two, but we've also seen a lot of new brewers fall in love even before embarking upon their first fermentation. For those of you who are already passionate about hand-crafted beer, like we are, here's the Deluxe Brewing Starter Kit.

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!
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 text, online chat, or email. We highly recommend adding our Mad Brewer Testing Kit or Brewery Essentials Gravity Testing Kit.

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.

Deluxe Homebrewing Starter Kit
The starter contained everything I needed. I watched the video on youtube and noticed everything in my kit was the same as the items in the video. My first batch was easy. The only difficult part was deciding where to store the Carboy while the beer was fermenting. I carried it downstairs to the basement. It was pretty heavy and slippery. Next time I will fill the carboy up after it is downstairs!
I got this for a friend as a birthday present, and he said it was the best present he’s ever gotten! It was so fun to brew and it was DELICIOUS!
Deluxe Homebrewing Starter Kit
The equipment arrived quickly and safely. It is of high quality. Having the two carboys is really helpful. I hadn’t noticed that the kit doesn’t have a hydrometer so be sure you pick that up. I have brewed for a while but my equipment got lost in a move so I had to replace it. I was dreading it because I had accumulated just what I like over the last 10 years. But this kit replaced 90% of what I liked so I was pleased. The beer kit itself was ok but uninspiring but I suspect that 99% of people buying this equipment package are just getting started and the beer kit ingredients are uninspired but standard and adequate. I can get started again!
