4.2 / 5.014 ReviewsGets the Job DoneAlthough I misread the set up on this with the siphon/racking cane (not an auto-siphon) the kit comes as advertised. The kit is solid provided you don't want/need a secondary fermentor, and a free Pale Ale kit to boot is a pretty good deal, although I'd have preferred the secondary, All in all it gets the job done and is a good starting kit for extract brewing to see if the hobby will stick without investing in much more.September 18, 2016Great starter kitEverything you need for your first batch. Good, easy instructions. Bought the kit for a 23yr old son. I have been brewing for years but was easy for him to follow.January 16, 2017Purchased
4 months agoThe best starting kit you'll find.I ordered this package a few months ago and it truly does come with everything you need to ferment and bottle your brew. If you're on a tight budget and eager to get started brewing this is a great choice if you already have a kettle or pot. I opened it up and got busy immediately.. I added a few specialty grains to the Pale Ale Kit to add my own twist and it was a hit on Christmas Day. Ive already brewed a few batches AND also converted my cousin into a new home brewer too. Definitely order a thermometer separately. I got a PT12 Javelin DigitalDecember 28, 2016Great starter Kit.Gift for my Brother. He was overwhelmed by everything that comes with it.January 9, 2017Purchased
5 months agoGreat Beer & ServiceAm very proud of this brew kit,it made some great beer.Midwest is a great place to buy supplies from,thanks for great products and great service,Larry Gene PateFebruary 3, 2017Purchased
3 months agoSuper easy to brew.It has been a few years since I brewed beer and this is the first time I used a kit. Was super easy.January 7, 2017Purchased
4 months agoLeaky LidThis would be a great starter brewing kit short of one problem. The bucket lid that came with the kit leaks and is extremely stiff and hard to remove. This to me is a big problem as the brewer is unable to watch the fermentation progress through the air lock action if the fermenter does not seal properly. I did find the recipe kit that comes with it to be simple and of good quality for the price.February 12, 2017Purchased
6 months agoWith a good pale ale kit included, what a dealI hadn't brewed in 20 years and got first lured back by two cheap corny kegs on ebay. I thought I couldn't go wrong with this starter kit. And I was right and pleasantly surprised with the grains added for my extract. I think the simple pale ale stands up to the microbrewery beers I've drunk lately. Very happy and their regular Irish stout that MS also sent me is outstanding as well. Thanks and cheers!March 30, 2017Purchased
1 month agoGood beerJust brewed my second batch of SB IPA. Added an additional 2 pounds of liquid malt and one extra pound of dried malt. Added a Centenniel hop addition at 40 minutes and an additional oz of Cascade hops at 20 minutes. The first IPA was good, but I like to experiment.January 7, 2017Purchased

- Customer Q&A
Browse 8 questions Browse 8 questions and 27 answersWhat size is the plastic tubing included in this kit please ?Does this come with a Pale Ale or and IPA? If it comes with the Pale can you chose to receive the IPA instead?BEST ANSWER: I didn't see an option to select which beer I wanted, so to answer your question it is no. Unless they changed, hope this helps.Does this come with an actual siphon?BEST ANSWER: My version of this kit came with a standard siphon, not an auto siphon. I do not know if they've retooled the kit since then, but I would strongly recommend you read the description of contents to avoid false expectations.what other recipes can you do with this kit after you've used the recipe that comes with it?BEST ANSWER: An equipment kit of this kind is set up to produce batches of beer with "single-stage" fermentation, where it's fermented in the bucket for 2-3 weeks, and then bottled up. Many beer kits can be made with single-stage fermentation, but some do require use of a secondary vessel. For beers that would require a secondary, we'd recommend a glass or plastic 5-gallon carboy, which is sold separately. But many types of beer can be successfully brewed up with a kit package of this kind! -Mike W, Midwest SuppliesIs the oxy wash that comes with the kit both a cleaner AND sanitizer?BEST ANSWER: It is a sanitizer. I would recommend purchasing star san sanatizer. The packet you will get is just enough for the first process, but not enough to do the sanatizing for racking your beerHow big is the box it comes in and what does it look like?BEST ANSWER: The box in the pic is the box. Very simple b but good ingredients.How big is the box that it comes in and what does it look like?BEST ANSWER: The kit all comes in a large brown cardboard box. Probably 14 inches deep and wide by about 24 inches high with BEER SIMPLY BEER in large block letters on the side.So the steeping grains that came in the kit that was in here isn't labeled beer.simply beer.pale ale. or Crystal 40. They are labeled Night Shade. Is this a mix up? or is that what's supposed to be in there?BEST ANSWER: Hi there, that is the correct correct grain blend. Cheers!
