Default Is Morebeer.com a reputable site?

I am thinking about purchasing this http://morebeer.com/view_product/159...231_-_Standard it's $70 with free shipping which seems like a good deal. i like the prospect of this because it seems both buckets have spigots for easy transfer. what do you think should i get it?

alright i can't tell by the description whether or not the primary fermenter has a spigot for easy transfer to bottling bucket. it doesn't say anything about coming with an auto siphon like some other kits i've seen for only $10 more. can anyone tell me if in fact it does?

All of your questions are probably best answered if you just contact them directly.

Sounds like a plan I will email them before purchasing. Also with this setup I wouldn't need a secondary fermenter right? I could just switch buckets right?

A lot of people no longer recommend secondaries except sometimes for dry hopping or bulk aging of bigger brews.

allright I emailed them and will find out what the deal is. If both don't come with a spigot I will probably go with northern brewers kti because it comes with a spigot

No, Northern Brewer's bucket primary doesn't have a spigot. Why do you think you want a spigot on your primary?

Hee hee. sorry but I had to laugh when I saw the subject line. They are quite reputable. Probably one of the biggest homebrew suppliers on the internet.

I didn't like how the fermenting bucket didn't come with a gasket. The buckets don't seal properly. That being said, the buckets have made great beer with no infections, and now that I can control the temps, no off flavors either.
