4.9 / 5.034 ReviewsAwesome start to my new hobby!I wanted to start brewing for years and finally decided to buy the whole shebang to do it right! This kit has everything you need to get you started on the right foot. They truly did think of everything, even up to the fermenting thermometers for your carboys so you can see what temperature your beer ferments at. However, for those of you beginning like I am, you will need a few more things. This is the type of hobby that when you turn around you realize you either need or could use one more thing. I got in addition to this the silver serpent wort chiller, well worth the investment! You are also going to need an 8 to 10 gallon pot, and it will not fit on your kitchen stove, so you will need a portable propane burner. When it is all said and done you are going to be in the 7/800 dollar range. But, like I said, all well worth it. Just be aware that if you get this kit you probably should not be brewing on the regular kitchen pots and pans cause you may ruin your wort. You will also need to get sanitizer, that is the only other thing that was extra and essential to get started. But this one is definitely worth it, just the keg components alone will run you a good 75/100 bucks. I am very happy with it, I am waiting to keg my first batch and so far everything is looking good!March 26, 2016Equipment SuggestionsGreat system; though it would benefit with the addition of a fermwrap heater (40535) and Thermowell stopper (40054) to accompany the digital control as well as either a drill mounted string whip or stirring spoon (7331).Anyone buying this kit should consider these additions and hopefully MidWest will add these options to future kits.June 17, 2016:-)Best bang for the buck! The plastic spigot for the primary leaked a couple teaspoons before it quit, But that's the only problem I had. I would consider changing that to a ball valve for a couple extra bucks(out of 4 valves i had bought, three leaked a little bit). I easily added more equipment to the kit, I now have enough to brew three 5gal. batches in a day. The DVD and book are great (I also like millers home brew guide). Better than bottling, Great customer service, can't go wrong here.May 7, 2011Best place to startSure you can start with a pot, bucket, spoon, and collected empty bottles. But I have seen far to many new brewers produce their glorious first batch never to repeat because they don't have the time to bottle or only drank a portion of their first batch. This kit is full of useful and relevant stuff. The items within are things you are going to want in short order. The product title should not scare you, you need not be a master brewer just a person that loves beer. You'll need a pot (get one bigger than you think you will need) and invest in or make a chiller. Beyond that find a cheap fridge or freezer on craigslist or other social media "garage sale" and make some slight modification (you'll need a shank and tap) and suddenly your place is a mecca for your friends. It seems to be expensive but if you spend a smaller amount and fail to produce a 2nd or 3rd batch then your value on return is poor. With this setup you will find yourself lining up beers to be enjoyed on draft. The carboys and the ability to rack and rest your beers skyrockets the quality of your beer. 3 years and 60 beers and I can confidently say that purchasing this kit was the best homebrewing move I made beyond getting a plate chiller. And for you current homebrewers, this kit adds to the bliss plus you can use the johnson thermal control to lager! I can't say it enough this kit is worth it!March 19, 2013First 5 Gallon KitThis was the first kit I bought when I jumped into 5 gallon batches. It's a good starter kit that I have also recommended to several friends. I've been brewing for a year now and haven't bottled yet. I thoroughly enjoy being able to keg, and serve draft beer to myself and my guests. Plus kegging is easier and less time consuming than cleaning, pouring, and capping 48+ bottles in addition to brewing.April 4, 2013Start off a Brew MasterThis setup will send you well on your way to being the best Brew Master your friends and family have ever met! Finish your beer in traditional style with the addition of secondary in a Carboy. Then Kick it up, with the Kegging system, nothing is better than beer on Tap. Your a Brew Master!March 17, 2014Great start for new brewersThis kit is awesome. It includes everything that is needed for your first brews (including Kegging)!January 2, 2015Worth The ExtraNo one wants to bottle, it's worth the extra money to spring for a kegging system right off the bat. The only qualms I have about the kit is it doesn't come with any sort of boiling kettle, aside from that I'd urge you to buy a few extra stick on thermometers to go on your kegs, then give you a pat on the butt and send you a brewing.June 26, 2010A brewer is bornI received this setup and an Irish Ale extract kit as a Christmas gift from my wife. I was all set (after running out to buy a brew kettle) and have found that it was pretty much everything I needed to really get started making some decent beer. A good add might be a decent thermometer, but other than that I was up and running. Everything is good quality. _x000D_One bit of advice: read the book!June 10, 2011GreatThis is a great little setup for beginning. The price is really AWESOME too... It would cost you double to buy all of the accessories separate. You will need a brew kettle as all as a hydrometer test jar. I recommend purchasing a thermometer and a nylon boil bag.July 3, 2012
