3.5 / 5.02 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, 2016Does not come with a siphonDescription lists that this kit comes with a siphon but it does not. It comes with a racking cane and siphon tubing that can be used to siphon liquid but not an actual siphon. Very disappointed!!September 18, 2016Response from Midwest SuppliesThis kit comes with siphoning equipment. This is a racking cane and with the siphon tubing it is easy to siphon from one vessel to another. A siphon can be started with a kitchen baster, or by putting clean water into the siphon hose, and dropping it down. When the water flows out of the hose, it will draw liquid up the racking cane, starting the siphoning action. Move the hose to the next vessel when the beer reaches the end of the siphon hose.November 2, 2016Midwest Supplies M

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 6 answersDoes this come with an actual siphon?BEST ANSWER: Yes, but not an auto-siphon. You will have to do an old-school "manual" siphon off the racking cane in the kit. Just don't use your mouth to do it!:-(what other recipes can you do with this kit after you've used the recipe that comes with it?BEST ANSWER: The equipment kit will allow you to make any beer you'd like to make from an extract lot, or your own recipe, I suppose. You would just need to get the ingredients for the next batch, the recipe kit that comes with it, makes a single 5 gallon batch. Hope that helps!
