What Else Do I Need?

In addition to all the great equipment, we've made things easier for you and personally selected three beer kits to choose from for your first batch. They're great tasting AND easy to brew!

American Wheat: A dry, crisp, and slightly tart American wheat beer that would appeal to both craft and mass beer drinkers.

PDG Pale Ale: Like it hoppy? Then our PDG Pale Ale (that's short for Pretty Darn Good) is sure to be a hit with hop heads. Loaded with Northwest style hops, and low enough in alcohol that you can have more than one!

Classic Dry Stout: Dark, roasty, and creamy! Our Guinness Stout clone is one of our most popular kits, and is a great starting ingredient kit for those wanting to brew something a bit darker.

Dred Brown Porter: A dark, malty brown ale with caramel and chocolate notes that is nicely balanced.

You will need a heat source such as a stove to use this kit. While a gas range is preferred, an electric range will work as well. You could also try an awesome propane gas burner for ultimate heating power!

Everything great (except the thermometer)
My wife gave me this five-gallon brewing kit for Christmas after I had had some success with a one-gallon kit. Having all the right equipment made making five gallons easier than making one, because I was always having to jury-rig household kitchen utensils to make one-gallon batches. I have since made seven ale batches using this equipment kit with various extract brew kits. Everything in this equipment kit is high-quality and useful, except the glass thermometer which did not attach to the brew pot and quickly broke (as I knew it would). Two things would make this kit better: 1) substitute the glass thermometer with a metal dial thermometer with pot clip (e.g., Big Daddy Thermometer); 2) Add a carboy hauler to the kit because there is no easy way to lift the carboy once it's full of wort.

Owner Response: Tim, thanks for your review and the feedback! We'll take that into consideration and maybe we can keep the costs the same. Cheers! Bryan & the GF Team
Awesome Purchase
I purchased the ultimate brewing kit as a gift I requested to have it delivered on a Saturday so I could be home to receive it and they kindly obliged to my request. It came neatly packaged and undamaged. It was everything I expected it to be. Not to mention the great customer service! I will continue to purchase whatever items I need as we venture on our beer making excursion. By the way, he loved the gift.

So Good!!!
I really enjoyed the entire process of my first home brew experience. I found each step to be quite fun, educational and most importantly, easy! I used every piece from this awesome kit except for the hydrometer, I will use it in the future batches, and the priming sugar because I like flat beer (like the IPA pints they serve in England, hand pumped into your glass). Also, I can't get over how good the Stout tastes, by far the best Stout I have ever tasted, and I've tasted a few. So, overall a very enjoyable experience that I will continue on with for life and the best money I ever spent!! Thank you!!

Ultimate brewer kit
Great deal! The kit came with everything needed to get started brewing as well as continue brewing. Kit contain quality pieces, good sizes (can BIAB, not just extract), and all the basic tools needed. Will need to purchase or save several more bottles for packaging. All in all, very pleased with the purchase and products.
