Common Questions

Where do I find a complete list of what's exactly in these kits?

Just keep on scrolling. We've made it easy to compare below.

Why should I pick up one of these kits?

We created these kits to save you from the trouble of traveling around our site and picking up each item you need to get started. Everything is included right here! There is nothing worse than being in the middle of a brew day and not having the gear you need. We've made sure not to leave anything out.

What's the minimum equipment I need as a brewer?

Our Starter Homebrewing Kit is just that! Of course it assumes that you already own at least a 5 gallon pot to brew in and a metal spoon. Don't have those? Then the complete kits will get you there.

One of your Complete Kits comes with a Carboy, and the other a Bucket. What's the Difference?

It comes down to personal preference. Some people prefer a carboy over a bucket because a giant glass jug looks nicer than a plastic bucket. A carboy is also more difficult to scratch which makes it easier to clean and sanitize. Carboys are glass and heavy when full, and can be slippery; some people prefer the ease of moving a fermenting bucket.

What are some other items I should think about down the road?

Beer Bottles, additional carboys and buckets to ferment more than one batch at a time, carboy handles, yeast nutrients to give your beer a boost, wort chillers to help with the brewing process, and a kegging system after a few batches to make sharing easy. There are so many options to help you in your quest as a home brewer. You don't need them to get started, but we know you were already thinking about them.
