Keep your Mr. beer keg fermenter. They work great for experimental test batches. I often rack some of my large batches in them to try new secondary infusions while I keg or bottle the rest.

I plan to. She is busy fermenting right, which is why I had to go with the bucket so I could get started on a second batch.

I like the easiness of the Mr. Beer fermenter. Good design for its intended purpose.

I have a second batch in the works for her... probably by next week.

Or sell it or give it to some homebrewer on here who wants it, a lot of small batch brewers are looking to pick up a few more for experimental batches. I use mine quite regularly. It's a perfect little fermenter for stove top ag batches.

Why the distillers hydrometer? Seems to me the scale would be different?...

Wow.. When I saw these kits offered by Mr. Beer I was completely shocked. Seriously, this is embarrassing. Let me ask everyone out there a question and maybe I'm an idiot. But how many people actually start out using these Mr. Beer kits as to say a Brewers Best kit? Personally when I started I chose the Brewers Best kit because of all the great supplies included with the great price. How does everyone else compare or should I ask, what should the first time home brewer look for in a kit?

I started with a Brewer's Best kit too. I think the appeal of Mr. Beer is that it's fairly small, and simple, and cheap. After Christmas, they are like $20 on the shelves at Wal-greens!

Actually, the very first "beer kit" I ever bought was a Beer Machine 2000. It was small, simple, and seemed like it would be good. I never actually made a drinkable beer in it after a couple of tries, and I think it's still in my basement with the powdered mixes. It was years later that I got a Brewer's Best kit.
