You may notice that our Brewing Equipment Kits don't include a brewpot or bottles. This is because many people already have a large enough pot to boil in (we suggest at least a 16-20 qt. size). If you need a large pot for boiling, go to the Brewpots & Spoons page. As for bottles, any pry-off top bottles can be collected, scrubbed, sanitized and re-used. However, we do carry a full line of new pry-off top bottles and flip-top bottles in various sizes and colors on our Bottles page.

EK100 Basic 5 Gallon Beer Brewing Equipment Kit
EK500 Upgrade Book! There is a small beginner's booklet included with the beer making kit. Most homebrewers will soon buy "The New Complete Joy of Homebrewing" anyway - it's a much better book and it is the standard of the beer making hobby. There is no need to have both books. If you want, we will leave the starter booklet out of the Kit and include "The New Complete Joy". add $10.00
EK503 Upgrade Plastic Fermenter to Glass! We can leave the 6.5-gallon Fermenter  and #2 stopper out of the kit, and include a 6 1/2 gallon Glass Carboy and #6 1/2 stopper instead.
Note:  We recommend that you get a carboy brush (CL105) to clean the carboy.
add $27.00
