Pretty cool. It's slightly cheaper than Austin Homebrew's clone kit, but Costco's is DME vs. AHS's LME.

Too bad it's online only. I'd love to be able to go to my local Costco and pick this up.

Wow it comes with a pot and a kit? That's not bad for $100.

Hard to say about the quality of the addons (capper, hydrometer etc.).

But for $100 that's not a bad deal.

If they had it B&M I might grab one just for the extra supplies.

Does not include Brewer's Yeast
Damn that is too bad. I was hoping to see pacman in there but I can understand why they couldn't carry liquid yeast.

Up here in Canada, Costco has been selling mostly Wine kits but there has been some beer kits in the past.

But in all fairness, it is much more fiscally viable to Homebrew here in Canada, since a case of 12 beer such as Budweiser or Coors costs about $20 and my homebrew costs me about $3.35 per 12.

Costco - Icy Cold Beverage Dispenser

I would love to have one of these and just start kegging in the 5L minis.

I went north for a week earlier this summer... ended up burning most of our vacation budget on beer. It really is outrageous for you folks!

As far as the "cold beverage dispenser" goes, I'd be wary. Trying to cool warm liquid with a TEC as it flows at a decent rate is going to be hard. The thing only CONSUMES 70w... so you'll get considerably less heat removal from it. Water holds a lot of heat, I doubt you'd be satisfied with something like that. For $200.. just get a fridge.

It would seem that the bottling is done through the Autosiphon?!?!

It does not mention a spigot or either of the buckets being outfitted with one.
Just a beer bottle filler(Easy flow).

Also, it is a shame that it includes a wheat kit for those of us that can not/should not have wheat. Kinda limiting.

Yeah, I would add a spigot to the bottling bucket and attach the filler with a short piece of host.
