Bought this for my son who loves craft brews and IPAs. He will love it and the availability of different mixes to make again and again! Very unique gift and it tells you where in the USA it comes from
Totally worth it!
I bought this brew kit as a birthday gift for a guy that seems to have it all. He was absolutely thrilled with it! The packaging in great and the style of the whole kit is gorgeous. I will be purchasing the other kits and additional add on packages to make this IPA again.
The beer turned out to be really good! We had a great time, best Mother Son science experiment in years!

Purchased this for my husband for Fathers Day. Haven't brewed the beer yet but nice packaging and directions. Can't wait to try it out!
My fiancé's adventurous dad really enjoyed getting this gift. It's a process, he said, but well worth the wait. For someone interested in the science behind beer (rather than someone who thinks this'll be a faster way to drink beer), this was a perfect fit.
Fun to be able to brew your own beer!
My wife bought this kit for my birthday. The instructions seem daunting, but they're easy to follow. The house smelled amazing during the brewing process. The hardest thing to deal with is the waiting through the fermenting period. Make sure you use a pot with a good bit more than a gallon capacity. Only real complaint is there could be more advice given regarding filtering out the hops. I'm going in now to buy my next kit!
Bought this neat little kit for my boyfriend who was used to brewing on a larger scale when he lived elsewhere, and didn't want to drag all the large equipment cross-country with him when he moved. He was thrilled at the size and re-use-ability - unfortunately we've learned while brewing the first batch that the rubber stopper sent to plug the bottle doesn't actually fit in the neck of the jug. So... that's challenging. It also doesn't come with a strainer, which is fairly necessary for the bottling process (though also easily overcome using a fine home strainer). Would have been much happier with this product if it all came together (literally) from the package.
Everything is included except for beer bottles. I bought monogrammed beer glasses to go with the kit--a perfect combination for the person who has everything and who loves IPA beers! Easy-to-follow directions but time will tell with him--if he reads them!
