Rated 2 out of 5 by fljen from umm, maybe try another kit? I just brewed my first batch and was wondering what happened to the thermometer which was working great. So I rinsed it, and the red thermometer stuff was all over my sink! I don't know if it is in the beer or the missing chipped glass from it either.Date published: 2017-02-18Rated 4 out of 5 by saltybones from Good Beer But... This is a really fun thing to have and although messy and time consuming it makes delicious beer. Before you brew make sure you have everything including the right size strainer and pots. Also make sure to get a box of bottles as well as the caps and the capper. It helps if two people do it together but I just finished my first brew and it is awesome!!!Date published: 2013-06-23Rated 5 out of 5 by jeffnsar from A lot of fun! We have not tasted our "brew" yet as it still has a week and a half to sit before bottling, but it was great fun and fairly easy to do, although somewhat messy and uses a lot of different pans....but hopefully it will be worth it (I don't drink but my husband has a beer once a week, so we hope it will be good!)Date published: 2012-06-29Rated 3 out of 5 by FlamingoGiraffe from High Stress, But Good Results Be advised: This kit is not a good choice if you don't already have several large pots, a strainer with very small holes, a funnel, and some way to bottle the beer. I don't think that swingtop bottles are quite as ubiquitous as the kit instructions make them out to be...I ended up using bottles from French lemonade. However, despite a large amount of sediment ending up in the beer, everyone who has tried it likes it.Date published: 2012-06-22Rated 4 out of 5 by MrsJohnston from GREAT GIFT! Beer is a little harder to make than the kit lets on, but made a great gift for my brother's 23rd birthday. Bought this and a pair of engraved glass beer mugs. Just perfect. The process of making beer takes about a month! Hoping it turns out to be as delicious as they promise! ... there is also a gorgeous glass jug included (that I plan to use for decorating after we've made the beer a few times!)Date published: 2012-04-11Rated 4 out of 5 by lissiehoya from At Least It Made Beer This kit includes almost everything that you need to make beer. One of the things that you really need that we didn't have was a fine mesh strainer, so make sure that you have one of those before you try to make the beer. Ultimately, this kit is not as easy to use as it seems. The beer that we made was... okay... drinkable, but not very good. We're definitely going to try again, but be warned that your first attempt may not turn out so well.Date published: 2012-03-25
Can I make gluten free beer with this?I would like to find a beer making kit to use to make gluten free beer. Will that work with this kit?You can, but you'll have to source a recipe and ingredients. I just looked at The Brooklyn Brew Shop's recipe Book, and they have 4 gluten-free beer recipes in that book. The ingredients you'll need to buy from a homebrew shop would be the hops and yeast; everything else you should be able to get at the grocery store.Date published: 2013-10-22
RE: beer making kits. What will I need to bottle the beer, and can I buy it through williams-sonoma?Do I need a device to cap bottles?Yes. A "Crown Capper" should be reasonably priced, but I prefer a bench capper, for a few $ more.Date published: 2018-09-03
"shelf life of the beer making kits"I was wondering how long these kits last. I would like to give this to someone in April for their bday. Thanks so much-SusanI'm not sure if this is what you're asking, but the kit only comes with the supplies to make beer once. You can order others from the manufacturers website. We purchased ours in November and made the beer in January.Date published: 2013-10-22
