Pros: makes beer
Cons: none yet
Recommended? YesI bought this online and love it! It's easy to make good beer, yet small enough to hide from my parents;) I'm the only one in my class who brews beer, no more looking for someone to buy me beer because i set the beer machine under my bed and in five days i put it in my mini fridge and bam i got beer! Even seniors at my school think i'm brilliant. I'm lucky my mom and dad don't go in my room, it gives me a chance to make my beer. I'm dating a junior so i'll probably be the only one going to prom in my freshman class, not to mention i'll also have beer!!! Thank you beer machine!!!
Pros: Easy to make beer
Cons: Makes terrible tasting beer.
Recommended? NoIf you want to make cidery tasting beer, this is the one for you.
Pros: There are no pro's
Cons: High price for low-low quality
Recommended? NoI bought one of these about 3 years ago. If you follow the instructions at all - it is almost impossible to mess up. That is the only benefit.
The beer came out poorly carbonated with a very low ABV - guessing 2.5% tops.
In a nutshell it makes a beer-like beverage that most likely convinces most people who try it - not to do it again. That is what almost happen to me.
Pros: Once properly assembled it does make beerlike it said.
Cons: the finished beer is still cloudy and when Co2 is introduced it's still flat.
Recommended? NoI followed the directions to the tee, the end result is not what they said it's cloudy the taste is a flat beer. I'm wondering if the batch i got with the kit was bad or the yeast was old. I'm willing to give this another try with an American brown ale kit they sell before I completely file this in the trash.
P.s. they don't tell you what percent the alcohal content is of the beer your makeing and you can not take a hydrometer reading.
I think thats wierd.
