Hi Jennad, something like this?

https://www.geterbrewed.com/geb-budg...eer-and-cider/

�£16.70

Along with this:

https://www.geterbrewed.com/woodford...-bitter-3.0kg/

£18.75


If I had to do things over I'd go this route. All he needs is a few 500ml or 2L bottles and a little sugar.

You do realise after he's started, he'll need a brew shed or pub, just saying

Ha thanks ! Some of the kits I saw were £100 or more so this looks a bargain. I take it I just need to buy a brew kettle pot thing then as well?
Thanks

Hi Jenna!
Is there any chance of showing what kit you've got in mind? Some are based on malt extract, others are all-grain kits.

A brew pot, that would be a 5 gallon souppan (two would be nice though). I assume there already is one present in the kitchen? A metal sieve is also welcome (and convenient in a kitchen). And that's it actually.
Everything I bought more were either improvements or additions to the kitchen outfit.

A number of members have had problems with the Woodfordes Wherry Bitter kit fermentation sticking so for a first kit it may be best steering clear of this one.

Thanks for the replies. Sorry for being thick but i want to buy this kit:
http://www.brewstore.co.uk/us-ipa-11...grain-beer-kit

So would this equipment plus a large sauce pan/brew kettle be everything i needed?

Thanks,
Jenna

Hi @Jennad,
The kit page recommends a 20 litre boil pot.
Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/cooking-sto.../dp/B00BIYHI1G
eBay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/30cm-Larg...26.m2548.l4275
Don't forget the bottles - if you get PET bottles you won't need a capping machine. Coopers bottles are said to be the best.

Sorry if this sounds like fob off, it really isn't supposed to be. But it might be worth you phoning or e-mailing say geterbrewed and they can talk you through everything and give you a break down of the minimum gear required.

My Mrs. Got me a coopers starter kit with a young's American pale ale for Christmas last year. She organised it all over the phone with the local homebrew shop nd they put it together for her. Best present ever! All she had to do was nip in and they carried it out and put it in the car for her.

I've never asked but I reckon about 100 quid all in.
