These kits are assembled FRESH to order, so you don't have to worry about how long that box has been sitting on a hot warehouse shelf  while the yeast dies and the grain stales. We include your malt extracts (which aren't weird or artificial, just sugars extracted from barley), freshly vacuum-sealed hops, the appropriate vial of liquid White Labs yeast (we match the yeast to the beer to give you the truest representation of the style), as well as a pound of steeping grains in most kits. Because many of our customers keg, priming sugar is not included and must be ordered separately. You will also want to add an ice pack to your order to ensure maximum viability of the yeast.

Over the years we have received, and continue to do so, many positive reviews of our kits. We attribute this to the quality and freshness of our ingredients, something we never take for granted. Brew something great today!
