What to Consider When Buying a Home Brew Kit

There’s nothing like the taste of something you made yourself. If you’re ready to turn your home into its own micro-micro-micro brewery, start with one of the following kits.

Best Home Brew Kits

1. Everyday IPA Beer Making Kit

Few modern beer lovers argue with a crisp IPA and this one comes in at 6.8% ABV. Between the all-grain mix and blend of quality hops, it delivers a perfect balance of bitterness and hoppiness. That’s not to mention the robust and citrusy aromatics. All the equipment is reusable so clean after use, buy more mix and no-rinse sanitizer, and get to work on your next batch.

2. Craft a Brew Hefeweizen

Ideal for beginners, Craft a Brew’s beer brewing kit allows you to whip up your very own Hefeweizen. A Bavarian wheat beer, Hefeweizen is known for its super-refreshing taste and silky texture. Like other beer brewing starter kits on the list, this one is reusable. It’s also highly affordable.

3. Northern Brewer Caribou Slobber Brown Ale

Between its easy-to-follow instructions, fresh ingredients, and premium equipment, this home brew kit will have you crafting something special in no time. Unlike certain counterparts, it doesn’t use pre-hopped malt extract in a can. Any lingering questions? If so, be sure to take advantage of the brand’s exceptional customer service.
