Deluxe Home Brewing Kit

Deluxe Fermonster Homebrew Starter Kit from MoreBeer!

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Make brewing fun and easy with our new Deluxe Homebrewing Starter Kit only from MoreBeer!. This beer brewing starter kit includes the nearly indestructible Fermonster fermenter, a five gallon stainless steel brewing kettle, an American Pale Ale ingredient kit and all the time-tested equipment you need to brew up 5 gallons/2 cases of beer per batch.

The new Fermonster fermenter eliminates the hassle of siphoning and is extremely to clean. Use the spigot to test and taste during fermentation and then when you are ready use the spigot to transfer your beer to the bottling bucket. No transferring and no siphoning. After fermentation is over drop in one of the included cleaning tablets. If you ever need to wipe it down the large 4″ lid and clean straight sides make this the easiest to clean fermenter on the market. And a small but not insignificant feature we really love is the molded in level markers that tell you exactly when you have reached your desired volume. The clear walls also allow you to see the yeast “working” while the magic of fermentation takes place. Because the Fermonster is made from virgin grade PET (same material as 2l soda bottles) it will never break. This is major safety feature when compared with heavy glass carboys that are very slippery when wet.

Over the years we found that many brewers thought they had a big enough kettle. They would go home only to return and buy our five gallon stainless steel brewing kettle. We decided let’s just discount the kettle and include it to start with! Plus because it is made of food-grade stainless steel you don’t have to worry about any off flavors imparted by your boil kettle.

Cleaning and sanitizing is key so we’ve included industry leading Star San sanitizer and super easy to use Craftmeister oxygen based cleaning tablets. We’ve also made a few items standard that really make the brew day easier including a thermometer for temperature control and a hydrometer with testing jar for measuring sugar levels. Our reusable mesh bags allow for the easy removal of spent grain and hops at the end of the boil. The included stainless spoon is really nice upgrade over plastic when you are stirring boiling liquids.

The included American Pale Ale is a craft brewing classic with great malt flavor and Cascade hop aroma.

This Kit Includes:
  • 6 Gallon Fermonster fermenter with spigot, stopper and airlock
  • Five Gallon Stainless Steel Kettle
  • Food-Greade Bottling Bucket with spigot
  • Mesh Bags for steeping grain and hops on brew day
  • Thermometer for easy temperature management
  • Hydrometer for making key sugar readings
  • Transfer Tubing
  • Bottling Wand with shut off valve
  •  Sturdy Bottle Capper
  • Bottle Caps
  • Bottle Cleaning Brush
  • Star San Sanitizer for true sanitization
  • Large Stainless Steel Spoon for mixing
  • Craftmeister Cleaning Tablets for easy cleaning
  • Delicious American Pale Ale recipe kit with yeast

Can You Save Money Making Your Own Beer?

Pictured: MoreBeer’s BRKIT100 Homebrew Starter Kit

A driving factor for a lot of homebrewers to pick up this great hobby is… saving money.  After all, if I make my own beer at home, it’s got to be cheaper, right?

Let’s find out.

Ground Rules

These are estimates and assumptions.  Actual costs are going to vary.  This scenario assumes you drink quality craft beer.  Along those lines, for estimation’s sake, let’s say you like a popular style like a mildly hoppy pale ale and you’d generally spend about $7 or $8 or so on a 6 pack.  Shipping charges will be considered $0 as free shipping options are usually available at certain thresholds.  Taxes will be considered $0.  This scenario assumes an extract brewing technique.

Let’s get started…
