New in the Maker Shed: Beer Making Kits

Ever wanted to brew your own beer? Have you tried and failed miserably? The Maker Shed’s new Brooklyn Brew Shop Beer Making Kits will have you brewing like a pro in no time. With this kit you will learn the true steps of brewing by making a grain mash, sparging, hopping, yeasting, fermenting, bottling, and then drinking your delicious homebrew. The 1 gallon size makes it manageable to do on a stove unlike typical 5 gallon kits. The results are truly amazing and the taste is as good or better than you get from most commercial beer. Includes everything you need to brew 1 gallon of delectable beer at home except a stove, strainer, funnel, and a pot. Available in two different flavors; Everyday IPA and A Well Made Tripel.

    It looks like a neat little product, and the last thing I want to do is come down on getting more people to brew their own beer, but a 1 gallon brew is only going to give you about 10 12 oz bottles. Also, it’s a little disingenuous to say that typical 5 gallon kits can’t be done on a stove. I’ve been doing extract brews with 2.5 gal boils on my stove (adding water after the boil for 5 gallons total) for a while. Sometimes on gas, sometimes on electric.

    I agree with Chris.  It is a fun project and 1 gallon might even be a decent sized batch if you’re saying your readers are the sort to drink alone.  But the price to end up with a gallon of beer is just insanely high unless I’m misreading and you get several batches out of this kit. 5 gallon kits typically cost around $17 here, and obviously there’s a huge selection, not just 2.

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I'm a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
