4.3 / 5.08 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, 2016The 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 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
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

3 months agoDoes 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 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 10 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!Is the oxy wash that comes with the kit both a cleaner AND sanitizer?BEST ANSWER: The short answer is yes, it is a combination cleaner and sanitizer and it is a good product, especially for that first batch when everything is basically clean to start with. However after you have made a couple of batches and things start to get stained and dirt gets in all the cracks and crevices you may want to invest in better cleaners and sanitizers. Cleanliness truly is next to godliness when it comes to making good beer.
