If you can make oatmeal, you can make beer. Brooklyn Brew Shop's apartment friendly Beer Making Kits make it easy to bring brewing out of the garage and into the kitchen using only fresh, whole ingredients and traditional methods used in homes and breweries for centuries. By brewing with the same ingredients (cracked barley, hops, spices and yeast) that the best craft breweries in the world use, making high quality and complex beers becomes possible on the stovetop in your very own kitchen, big or small.

This kit was a perfect starter kit as it provides much of what you'll need, from the actual ingredients and sanitizer, to the fermenting jug, and a thermometer for cooking along with a few other tools. You'll still need to pick up a few things like a strainer, bottles, and a bottle capper,
The good news is that after the first batch is done, you can use the kit with your own home made recipes with other malts and hops.
For what its worth, the recipe included is pretty good. For someone looking to experiment with home brewing without investing too much off the get go, this is worth a try!
I recommend checking Youtube for some user created instructional videos to go along with the instructions from the Brooklynn website. It will help make things that much easier to follow along with and not screw up.
So I decided to try the Brooklyn beer kit. It came with ALMOST everything I need. In the picture everything minus the pot and strainer was included. Personally, I think its a great deal for $50.
I purchased the 12 quart stock pot from superstore for $12, and the strainer from amazon.ca (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0089JCYE4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). You will also need 1 additional pot for boiling the spare water as well.
The instructions were very easy to follow. If you need a video to follow there is one on youtube by Bank Street Brewery that I found extremely useful. Its not the same recipe but the process is very similar.
It did take an afternoon of my time, but I found the process to be fun. Your not running around the whole afternoon, you just have to monitor the temperatures carefully. Overall I didn't find the process very challenging and I will definitely be trying out some of the other recipes or trying my own from scratch.
Only knock I have is the thermometer I got had a separated column, so it was useless, but you'd be better off using an instant read anyway.
Kit contents seem high quality, and the whole Brewing process was fun, if a little long. But these things take time.
( I HAVE 2 OF THIS EXACT BOX)
The first box came with a broken thermometer, so they sent a replacement kit
Heres what i noticed:
The first kit has a noticeably paler grain bill.
The first kit came with Fuggle hops, the second came with Galea.
The first kit was missing the hose clamp.
the second kit was missing the blow out hose
the second kits grain bill, was darker, and weights a bit less.
Both kits have different yeats, the first one was branded and nice, and even said "brooklyn brew" on it
the second kit had a generic, silver yeast packet with no writing on it except for the letters HZB on one side and "atmosphere protected" on the other
Youll never get the same brew out of these kits twice no matter how you try
and QC seems lacking severely.
Between both boxes I have ONE working kit, and 2 grain bills (that dont even match)
