An Affordable Brew Your Own Beer Kit

Photo: Williams-Sonoma

As both a long time hobbyist and long time beer drinker, I have always considered making my own beer. So you can imagine my delight when I stumbled on this inexpensive Beer Making Kit, well my excitement was palpable. At only $39.95 I think it is quite a steal.

Kit includes: 1-gal. glass fermenting jug. Screw-cap stopper. 3-piece chambered air lock. Racking cane. 4' tubing. Tube clamp. 12" laboratory thermometer. Sanitizer packet. Ingredient mix.

There are also step-by-step instructions to guide you through the process. Sure there may be some additional equipment -pots and pans and stuff- that may be needed, but we're talking about brewing beer here. That is at least a 30 day commitment.

Have any of you guys ever brewed your own brew? Tell us about it in the comment section! I am very tempted to start it up myself, so your input may actually influence my decision.

Too much to say in a comment. Since you are a poster, you should have the ability to send me an e-mail. Beer is no more difficult than baking a turkey. Once you are shown the techniques, you can make your own.

I used to work as a microbiology lab TA, and we brewed beer as one of our projects in class - based on watching student groups make about 10 different brews, all I can say is pay attention to the details and be very focused on the task at hand, and USE A GOOD THERMOMETER. That is one thing you REALLY shouldn't skimp on, since basically all microbes have a temperature sweet spot, and as playtrombone64 found out, if Saccharomyces cerevisiae gets too warm, they'll start metabolizing like crazy and produce waaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyy more CO2 than you want.

In other words, if you can't find a brewer, find a microbiologist or mycologist to help you out. We know our stuff.
