Will this work well for beer? Wine?
    #3743408 - 02/07/05 01:11 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I'm purchasing ak it and I'm wondering if it's all I'll need for brewing beer and if it will double for wine.

Click on "Beer Brewing" "Brewing Equpment Kits" "Deluxe..." kit.

Is it worth the money?

Yeah that's everything you need to start brewing beer/wine. You may be able to save a bit of money looking for similar items sold at non-brewing places though...

If you could find 2 5-gallon buckets (with lids obviously) and a 5 gallon metal drum or huge saucepan like this for a cheaper price than the kit, then that would be superior. The more wort you can heat at one time, the better. If you can do the full 5 gallons your beer will be of much better quality than if you can only boil 1 gallon. Most of the things in that kit are either easily improvised or available pretty cheaply on ebay.

5 gallon buckets with lids are probably sold somewhere near you, they sell them at my garden centre (but I'm in the UK). The big metal boiler is harder to find, restaurant supply shops will charge you far too much, surplus places might be able to help you out though.

It's a long time since I brewed beer, I hope I got that all right.

IMO kits are a bit of a rip-off, in the same way that hydroponic shops usually are. You can probably find the same stuff cheaper if you shop round. Depends how much money means to you, I suppose. :P

No. That site is ghetto as shit. $149+28.90 for shipping (I just picked a random state, but that is going to be expensive.)

I'll suggest another site. www.morebeer.com
$99 for their kit, +$10 for a bottle and carboy washer, +$35 for a chiller, +$0 for shipping. $145. Add those and you'll have the same thing.

If you have any questions about homebrewing, please refer to these previous posts I have made:

If you have any questions, post them here, or better yet, post them in the threads above.

This is my local brew store here

free shipping on anything over $60.
The other thing you need to buy is a 5 gallon stainless steel cooking pot with lid.

nice, I just placed a $107 order on Saturday. Shipped today, I can't wait for it.
I would have mentioned austin homebrew supply, but the kit wasn't as similar as the one at morebeer. www.northernbrewer.com is good, but no free shipping.
