    Great set! Review by J

    The book has a wealth of information from basics how to brew your first batch to as much of the science, math and general what to expect from ingredients to confidently start brewing to your own tastes. I think it gave me the information to venture in to trying my own recepie varients with reasonable expectations. The hydrometer and test jar are great, gave the OG & FG readings so I can calculate ABV and tell when fermentation has ended. The thief is a bit bulky but does the job. The chemicals have instructions on them and if you look them up in the book there is more information on their use, I've used them on my brews and they seem to do what are supposed to. Bottom line the kit is a must have for brewers wanting to raise their brewing game quickly. (Posted on 8/17/13)
    Help for a great start Review by Michael

    I love the book! It's something I'll go back to over time, especially as I move into new techniques. Reading the book alongside the NB videos is helpful. Even though there are (minimal) instructions on the bottles, it would be helpful to throw in a sheet with the kit explaining what the various ingredients do for you and when or when not to use them. Every beer, certain types? That little touch is the difference between a bunch of things in a box and a "kit." (Posted on 8/12/13)

    Love the "How to Brew" book. A must have for a noob like me. Hydrometer and wine thief makes for creating that perfect brew. (Posted on 8/4/13)
    Nice Kit, fast shipment Review by Ron

    Kit shipped fast and the hydrometer, thief, and test jar are great. The "how to brew" book is full of information as well but it is written like a text book. It is somewhat difficult to get a simple answer from. I have yet to try out the fermcap, whirl floc, or biofine yet...but there are no instructions for a newbie on how to use them.
