Hi guys

Looking for a cheap way to get in to this hobby and found this kit on ebay. Seems to have everything needed to get started. What do you guys think?

Thanks
Andy

ebay: Pressure Barrel - Finishes the fermenting process then stores and dispenses the beer
So it's like a plastic keg, I guess. I tried corn sugar carbonating in a Coors party pig once. Turned out over pressured and foamy. That was my whacked out black licorice candy beer though, so...

But yeah, you could make beer in that. I'd use the "Pressure Barrel" as a secondary. Or use it as a bottling bucket since it has a spigot. At least the first time. Once you get a good brew made, then you can try it as a plastic keg.

I can only recommend US suppliers; UK is totally foreign to me.

No capper or caps, I don't know about that dispensing thing. I'm not sure of the quality of the plastic, be careful cleaning it, you'll want to avoid scratching it. I didn't convert the price to US dollars, so I can't tell if that's a good value. It will make beer though.

Thanks guys. I'm thinking about just seeing if I can make a drinkable beer and enjoy it before investing more. I want to get a corny keg setup if this goes well.
