Firstly, the kit was missing screws but I contacted obk and they sent replacement parts and would contact bayou about the manufacturing error.
Secondly, the kit itself is good for beginners. Gives you everything you need but obviously the quality isn't as good as high end equipment. I've noticed I need a larger kettle now since boil over is a constant issue. So keep in mind how much you're wanting to brew. The pot would be great for smaller batches but not ideal for 5 gallon batches (although it is possible).
