Default For Sale - WTB: Coopers Home Brew Kit

I am brand new to home brewing and it looks like the Coopers kit may be the way to get started.

I am looking for a used, but complete, Coopers home brew kit.

Thanks

Acutally, Northern Brewer (in Minneapolis/St. Paul) is running a promotion right now on starter kits.

http://www.northernbrewer.com/brewin...ter-kit-1.html

After that kit, all you need is some bottles, a brew kettle and an ingredient kit.

The kit is normally $159, but use promo code "BrewNow" during checkout and you get it for $95.

This is the way to go. Feel free to PM me with any questions.

Coopers is a good kit, but what they don't tell you is that you should boil the malt extract that comes with the kit, even though "you don't have to". I went with Coopers as a first kit and I highly recommend you start with something else because you will just end up spending more money for better equipment anyway (if you like brewing that is, and I am sure you will!).

fwiw, if you're going to actually boil a hopped LME, it should be as short a boil as possible, lest you wipe out any aroma (first to go) then flavor (next to go) the hop extract is supposed to provide...

Cheers!
