Default Opinion on equipment

What do you think of starting out with this. I found it ten bucks cheaper elsewhere, but the pics and description are better here.

Gold Complete Homebrew Beer Equipment Kit from Overstock.com

Decent starter kit. I'd check out the ones here as it looks like they come with a bit more for the same price.

You can also check NORTHERN BREWER, Austin Homebrew Supply, or Beer Making and Home Brewing Supplies | MoreBeer to compare similar kits.

Go with the kit that McKBrew suggested. You'll get more for your money.

Yea, had I not bought a kit a few weeks ago, I'd have gone with this one... Brewing Starter Kit :: Midwest Supplies Homebrewing and Winemaking Supplies

I really wanted a glass carboy which are about $40 and the above kit is $10 more than I payed for mine but it includes everything I have PLUS a glass carboy.

its for drying carboys, you place the carboy on it upside down and it allows for water or sanitizer to drip out
