i too started with a mr beer kit. if you follow the directions, it will make decent beer. so yes it's a great intro to homebrewing.

if you continue with this hobby tho you will definetly outgrow mr. beer fast.

i say do a couple of brews with mr beer. if youlike the results and wish to continue consider stepping up to atleast a true brew kit:

available at most lbhs.

good luck with your brew and continue the tradition of homebrewing!

thanks all. i do hope to plan to "graduate" to better equipment.

but honestly what i think i am looking for in equipment is in aesthetics. i want a beer brew kit that looks neat like if someone were to come over they would think i was a chemist or something. like i want a whole bunch of clear bottles and stuff and fancy looking gas tanks and i want it to bubble.

now is this possible?

I suspected this was a joke from the first post, now this pretty much confirms it. Either that or somebody has had one too many

You'll find that any brew equipment is aesthetically pleasing. Come on, stainless steel, tubes, bubbling brews, etc. Also it will insite questions from guests. Just try to avoid launching into an hour long story about your brewing hobby until they actually ask for it

i can't contain myself. i know that the directions tell me to keep the mr. beer 'keg' out of sunlight. but i can't help but put the mr. beer keg on top of a dresser inside of my room. i have this obsession with staring at the keg.

so sue me.


it's ok to keep the mr. beer fermenter out in the open in a regular lighted room right?

Is there a problem with keeping the bottles upside down during carbonation? Turning them over every couple of days or so?

I know it will settle at the top, but if they all go right-side-up during bottle conditioning it will settle to the bottom.

One of my coolers broke and the only way I can get all the bottles in the one I have is if about 1/3 of them go in upside down.

Cola it is advisable to keep any beer out of the light in a dark quiet area to ferment. Disturb it and expose it to light as little as possible.
