i started brewing beer a year ago with "Mr Beer" and really enjoyed it and would like to upgrade. i live near a Northern Brewer store and taking the free "Intro to Brewing" class tomorrow. with the class you get 10% off their starter kits that day and i am looking at getting the "deluxe starter kit, plastic".

has anyone used this start up kit and is it good quality for the price?

thanks

That's the kit I purchased when I got started - I went with the better bottles instead of glass.

I used all glass carboys for a while but am now switching to plastic. No problems yet.

This is the same kit I got over the summer. It gives you everything you need and a little more to get started. My only recommendation would be not to use the sanitizer that comes with it and use either iodophor or san star. happy brewing

Thats the kit I just bought last week and used yesterday. It comes with 4 ounces of Star San so its perfect. I also went with Better Bottles and it already paid for itself (kinda dropped one when cleaning, DOH). I didn't buy one of their recommended beer kits though, I bought the Dead Ringer kit instead.

For $169 I would look to ebay. Now don't get me wrong I shop at NB all the time but you can find a comparable kit on ebay (mine came with an ingredient kit) for less.
