When I first started home brewing beer I had a difficult time figure out where I wanted to start. Once I decided where to start, it was on to deciding what was the best home beer brewing kit to start with. Here are some reviews of products I have either tried or researched when beginning.
Small Batch Home Beer Making Kit
This is where you want to start if you are unsure you will continue. These are 2-gallon kits where, in simplified terms, you just add water. You will have to go through fermentation and then bottle the beer, but this will be the least time-consuming. Here are the best home beer brewing kits for those just beginning.
Mr Beer and BrewDemon Beer Kit Reviews:These are small batch (24 beers) kits made by 2 different companies. The goal of the review is to ensure you get the best possible beer every time. I do have a bias towards the quality of instructions and the look of the equipment, but the decision where to begin is up to you.
BrewDemon Twisted Monk Witbier: As expected, this is a nice batch for new brewers. I give it a 5* mug rating out of 5. Why the asterisk? Well, somewhere along the way the flavor went south. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try, just that I didn’t succeed.
Home Beer Making Kit – Normal Batch Size
These are new home beer brewing kits since I started. What you will get here is 5-gallon versions of the small batch kits. Since the reviews will be similar for the equipment, I will review the different recipes available as I make them.
Home Beer BREWING Kit Reviews
These kits are some of the most commonly used by home brewers. In these kits, you are expected to create the wort on your own (the above kits have you add water to create the wort). You then follow the same process as the above kits. As I brew more batches, I will add the reviews here so check back frequently.
Top 5 Brewers Best Kits: As of now, the majority of my brewing has been done using Brewer’s Best kits. Each of these kits taught me something about home brewing and the results kept me coming back.
Brewcraft Rogue Dead Guy Ale: I rated this one 4.5 out of 5. It was mainly graded down for new brewers due to the low fermentation temperature. Read the review for more details on how the beer turned out.
Enjoy Home Brewed Beer!!!
There you have it, the best home beer brewing kit recipes that I have found. You will notice that even if I rate it low on taste, that is probably because it is not my favorite type of beer. It is up to you to decide what kind you want to make. My review will also include comments on the brewing and fermentation to help guide you.
