Pros: As a first time brewer this kit has everything you will need. The only thing you will supply is water and your own time. The fermenter alone makes this kit!!
Cons: Non at all. Everything was so easy to use! I don't think there could be another kit on the market so 100% perfect for new brewers!
Recommended? YesBought this kit after reading up on home brewing online and watching some youtube videos. I was really expecting a low quality product since everything was included for $109.99 on Amazon with Free Shipping, but to my surprise everything in the kit was top notch! I now have 30 bottles primed and waiting to be drunk and a new batch of Ale sitting in the fermenter!! This is a GREAT way to get into brewing!!

Pros: 109.99 on Amazon.com (free shipping to Alaska). Everything I needed was in the box. I ordered it on Monday and got it on Friday and on Saturday it is all mixed and fermentation has began.
Cons: Nothing yet.
Recommended? YesI just received this kit yesterday and within two hours i was done with everything. The closet I have been to homebrewing beer is drinking it. For having no experience at all I found the process very enjoyable.
Pros: Everything you need in one box....
Cons: Don't know enough to give it a bad review...
Recommended? YesAfter years of wanting to brew, this kit got me to actually do it...
The box included everything to get started:
Fermenting container, graduated with a screw on lid (predrilled for the airlock)
Spout with sediment reducer
Plastic airlock with rubber washer
Plastic bottles and caps
Thermometer (sticker for the fermenting container)
Long plastic mixing spoon
One container of extract with a Coopers yeast packet
1kg of brewing sugar
Carbonation drops...(looks like hard candy)
The dvd and printed instructions are straight forward and will have you impatienly waiting for your beer before you know it.
Pros: all inclusive kit for the beginner, easy to follow DVD, easy to purchase kits and replacement parts from the website
Cons: Can't purchase seperate additional fermenter
Recommended? YesThis is the kit that got me started in home brewing. I received the kit from my wife as a Christmas gift in 2008. It has everything you need to get started including the 23L fermenter, air lock, Australian Lager kit, 30 22oz PET bottles and caps, carbonation drops, DVD, and complete instructions. I haven't reviewed other kits on the market, but I would think it would be difficult to match the quality and completeness of this one.
Recommended? YesFirst Time Brewing. Instructions seem simple enough, but for a first timer such as myself I really want to someone to hold my hand and walk me through the entire process. I felt as though, some small details were left out. Beer is currently fermenting (5th day inside Fermenter).
