Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Quality malt extract. Step-by-step guide
This kit yields up to a gallon at a time and includes reusable equipment for added convenience. The ingredients come freshly packed for delicious end results.
- Heavy
The best part of the kit is the fact that the instructions are well written and precise.

What reviewers didn't like

No bottle capper in this kit.
Doesn’t come with bottles. Relatively small brewing capacity. Lacks some essential brewing equipment
- Heavy
The only equipment you will need that is not included is a large pot. While the kit works with 1 gallon of water, you will want a bigger pot to avoid boil-over. Boil-over is a huge mess to clean up and will discourage you to want to continue or could ruin your batch.
