For a comparrison of all the beer kit options, read Selecting A Beer Starter Kit.If you really want the top of the range starter beer kit, then this is the one for you.
Now with an upgrade option to Craft Range Blonde Lager (the best session beer in our opinion); we want your first homebrewing experience to be a success . . . its better business for us. The MasterPint kits are a bit easier to make though and the Coopers kits are almost bullet proof, so you might be better starting off with one of these.
Its the only really complete starter beer kit. Its got absolutely everything you will ever need to make homebrew beer (except a brew belt and timer which are required if the air temperature falls below 18 oC).
We were the among the first in the world to introduce new technology Ox-Bar bottles. Before this innovation, we recommended using glass bottles. All the advantages of glass bottles, but with the convenience of screw caps.
Enbracing new technology has made brewing beer so much easier and enjoyable! This starter kit really makes the whole process so simple and mess free. And its incredibly cost effective too!
Comes with additional free upgrades:
- 30 litre quality Brewferm PP fermenter,
- quality Stevenson Reeves hydrometer,
- Kilner trial jar (the slightly larger diameter minimizes surface tension effects, giving more accurate hydrometer readings), and
- large easy to read liquid crystal thermometer, full range 10 to 40 oC (required for true lagers and pilsners),
This kit allows you to brew without opening the fermenter; keeping air away from your brew. You no longer have to wash and sterilize thermometers and hydrometers every time you need to take a reading. To take a temperature reading, just read the liquid crystal thermometer. To take a hydrometer reading, just open the tap and fill the trial jar.
For easy bottle filling, the kit comes with a bottle filling mechanism: just push the bottle up, and when full, lower it - the flow of beer automatically stops. No more nightmares with syphons spilling beer everywhere.
And it contains a quality Stevenson Reeves hydrometer, and a Kilner trial jar which can be filled without opening the fermenter. Again, no messing around.
Comes with 100 grams VWP Cleaner/Sterilizer, the best. And a bubbler airlock. Its all quality components.
Also contains brewing sugar (Glucose / Dextrose Monohydrate) to improve the quality of your home brew beer (unless yopu selected a Craft Range all malt kit which does not require brewing sugar), and Coopers Carbonation Drops to make bottling your homebrew beer a breeze.

Special tip: (applies to all beer and wine kits): before you add the yeast, make sure the temperature is not too high! If the temperature drops below the recommended range, fermentation esentially slows down. But if it gets too high, the yeast can be damaged and the beer ruined.
