My Rating: 9/10
The Gold Complete Beer Equipment Kit from Monster Brew has just about everything you need for home brewing beer. It includes:
- 7.8 gallon fermenting bucket & lid
- 6 gallon glass carboy with stopper
- Bottle filler
- Vinyl tubing
- Hydrometer (to measure density)
- Bottle capper & brush
- The cleaning solution
This is a fantastic choice for any home brewer; especially if you want to look like you’ve been brewing for a long time. It’s all very authentic looking and to someone who doesn’t know any better, they’ll think that you acquired all of the equipment over the years as your brewing hobby grew.
You can tell that you have a great product by how it all looks and feels. All of the equipment is made from top-of-the-line materials and you will be able to use it all for many years to come.
With the size of the carboy and the fermenting bucket, you’ll be able to make up to 6 gallons of beer or 48 pints (16 oz.) at a time. Once your beer is finished you’ll easily be able to bottle and cap it so it can carbonate and be ready for consumption.
In addition to the volume of beer you’ll be able to make, you can be sure that all of you equipment is clean using the included cleaning solution. It is imperative that everything is clean before putting your ingredients into it because you don’t want your beer to get contaminated, but you won’t have to worry about that. You’ll be able to thoroughly clean all of your bottles, too, with the included bottle brush.
There are a couple of things, however, that they did leave out. The bottles and caps themselves aren’t included with this kit. You’ll have to purchase them separately for bottling; but once you have the bottles and caps you can easily get the beer into them and the caps on with the included tubing and bottle capper.
They also don’t include the ingredients with this kit which can be either a good or bad thing. It’s a bad thing because you have to pay extra for the actual ingredients to make the beer, but on the other hand, you get to choose exactly what type of beer you want to make and you’re not stuck with whatever type they would have included.
As with any beer, it’s personal preference as to what is good and what isn’t. No matter what type you enjoy, though, Monster Brew has a delicious recipe that will cater to you and the lucky people you decide to share your beer with.
Once you’re done with your initial batch of beer, you can wash out and keep all of this equipment too because you’ll definitely reuse all of it. You may never have to buy more equipment again.
In conclusion, this is a fantastic kit. Not only will you look like you’ve been brewing for a long time while using it, but you’ll actually use it for years to come. With a couple of extra purchases to get the ingredients and bottles, you’ll pretty much have your own brewery in your home.
