We often get asked what new home brewers should purchase when looking to get into the world of beer making. There’s certainly a lot of options, and it can be hard to narrow down a choice when you’re brewing for the first time! The best way to jump in and get your feet wet (or is that hands wet, or both?) is to go with an all-in-one kit that includes everything you need. If you’re buying this for yourself, or as a gift to someone else, you won’t have to worry about missing certain supplies that are required.
