A Home Beer Brewing Kit, The Quick And Dirty Way?

A person can have many reason to start brewing his or her own beer. A reason could be that beer you brew yourself could taste better and will surely cost a lot less then when you buy it in the store. If you want to start with your newly found hobby and see results as soon as possible then use a home brewing kit for the easiest results. And if you like various beer flavors then a beer kit could also help you out because you can get them in a lot of variations. Chances are that your favorite beer is already available.

So what is in a brewing kit, what are the differences and what will it cost you?


The starter kit will get you all the the things you will need for that first batch of beer you are going to brew. You will get a keg which is made from polyvinyl chloride, this is food grade, shatter resistant and very light. Obviously there will also be a lid and assembly set for a tap. There will be some reusable bottle caps included with universal openings. Often people who brew their beer at home use PET soft drink bottles to bottle the beer in. These caps will fit those kind of bottles. There is always the option to buy new clean plastic bottles if you prefer. Last but certainly not least, you will get a so called "Brew Pack" this holds all the beer mix, sanitizer and yeast you need for you first two gallon batch of beer. And of course there will be an instruction manual included as well. Pack">All this will probably set you back about $40.


On top of what is included in the starter kit the premium variation holds the following items. Eight (one liter) bottles, labels and caps. These bottles can be reused. They choose the number eight because most home beer brewers prefer that number of bottles when there are two of you drinking the batch. The labels who are self adhesive give your bottles that authentic look. Also included in the premium pack is a brewers guide. You can always get a refill brew pack you could use once the first pack is used and bottled, always for two gallons. The brewer's guide should not be mistaken for the starter kit instruction manual. The guide is a valuable reference that will help you in the years to come while you practice this wonderful hobbby. The premium beer kit will cost you around $50.


In the professional kit you will find everything that was in the premium one but this time you will get enough for brewing yourself three batches of beer which is about six gallons. On top of that there will be a brew-o-meter, hop scale, funnel, measuring spoon and sugar measure. With this kit you must be sure that you want to go through with this hobby, not because it would be a waste of money but it would be a waste of good beer. A professional set is for people who have seen someone else using a kit and now wants to do it on their own. A kit like this will probable be about $100.
