  • I was given a basic brew kit for Xmas one year but this was woefully inadequate. So, I went to a local Homebrew store and upgraded to the two bucket system and have been happily making my own for 15 years or more.

    Good price on the 5.0 cu ft freezer! Sounds like it meets your needs with little or no
