Home Brewing Equipment Kit #1 - Basic
Basic Start Home Brewing Equipment Kit
The basic home brewery starter kit! Starts you off on the right path with the standard necessary equipment at a very affordable cost. It is also simple to use, and anyone can follow the step-by-step directions (instructions are included with the OBK 3 Gallon Malt Extract Recipe Kit and 5 Gallon Malt Extract Ingredient Kit) to create a great brew with your first try!

This system is intended for those who already have a suitable brew pot at home. After the boil, it's simply transferring into a fermenting bucket, pitching yeast, waiting 2-3 weeks for fermentation, transferring to a bottling bucket with the auto siphon, then bottling with the bottle filler attachment. This system is fully upgradeable with other equipment found on our site.

This kit is designed for brewing OBK Extract Kits, either 3.5 gallon or 5.25 US Gallon depending on your pot size at home. This has all the other basic equipment needed for a successful batch of beer. Only other requirement is empty bottles when your beer is ready for packaging. (Save your pop-top empties from beers purchased from the store!)

4 of 5 Everything you need... Possible MacGyver required November 18, 2020
Reviewer: Jason from Kitchener  
First I'll start by saying this is a great set, as far as what it contains. With this + an old corn pot, and some ingredients, I've been able to make some decent beers and plan to continue to use all of the bits for some time. This was the only basic kit that included a hydrometer which was a big plus for me, and while everything isn't of the highest quality, it seems to be good enough to suit the purpose for a good set of batches!

The only caveat is the cheapest part is actually whats let me down... The siphon tube! The inner diameter out of the box was too loose for the racking cane and so my first batch of "Hoppy Wheat Ale" was pumped full of oxygen as I bottled it until I was able to put some steel wire around the tube to seal it.

My two batches since have been great with this little hack applied.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from North Bay, ON Canada  
After shopping around, this kit is the perfect combination to get one started with No Boil Brews or to aid in turning the turkey fryer into a whle new tool.

4 of 5 Awesome starter February 3, 2014
Reviewer: Noel Tibbles from Pickering, ON Canada  
My wife bought this for me as a Christmas gift and I've never looked back. I've brewed 3 batches already and now I'm in the process of upgrading. The fact you can use this with any other equipment is great.
The hose I got was kinked and it's thin walled, but still works fine.
