Make great beer with home beer making kits

Home beer making kits are the answer to today’s mass-market swill.  You can easily make your own beer with home beer making kits and finally enjoy a full flavored brew without additives.  If you’ve always wondered about home beer brewing kits then read on, I’ll explain how they work and what to look for.

To make your own beer you’ll need the following basic equipment

  • A large pot to boil the wort (unfermented beer)
  • A primary fermenter to start the fermentation process
  • Airlocks and tubing
  • Sanitizing powder
  • Thermometer
  • Bottles and caps

Home beer making kits usually come with everything here (except the pot, and maybe the thermometer) these kits are also usually rated for how much beer you can make.

You can choose many great home beer making mix kits too!

In addition, some other items included in higher end home beer making kits are secondary fermenter, specific gravity scales and bottling equipment.  These aren’t really necessary but will help you make better beer.

You’ll need a beer mix kit also to start making beer.  These are available separately (most home beer making kits come with one mix kit)  You’ll be able to buy more mix kits online, there’s an amazing variety out there.

If you’re unsure as to whether you really want to start making your own beer than I suggest looking into the home beer making kits by MrBeer.  They are inexpensive and easy to use, and they will make beer quite well.  If you’re happy with them you can always add more advanced equipment later.
