Would recommend anyone to get this with their first homebrew kit. The book is great to read and to refer to when needed. The measurement tools are essential as well!

Great experience.
New to homebrewing and love you guys. Have everything I need and ready to go. Will continue to do business with you. Just ordered some grains for my next batch. Hope they're fresh. If so will be purchasing a lot in the future.

Mad Brewers kit is MAD!
Love this kit. Got this because I had to replace my hydrometer from dropping my original one. The test jar is bigger than my last one, the hydrometer is alot easier to read, the 3 piece beer thief is perfect for taking samples from a glass carboy or the big mouth bubbler without taking the lid off (just remove the airlock bung and take your sample), have not used the fermcap or the biofine yet, but glad I have it for future brews. I also love the fact it comes with John Palmer's "How To Brew" book, saves me time and money from picking it up separately.
