P.S. I have a 5 gal kettle
I just bought myself this one:
Not sure if it's good. Last time I tried the "Brooklyn" one :
But my batch was undrinkable. Wish me luck this time. :/
I have to agree with @dmtaylor, get the Basic Brewers Best 1000 kit out of those 2 as it had hydrometer and thermometer. With out these 2 basic tools making beer is rather more challenging.
Things I would add on to of one of these kits (in addition to your beer ingredients) are:
- Campden Tabletes to knock the chorine ions out of your brewing water
- A couple of extra yeast packs, many kits come with very small packs of yeast ~6g to save costs, I would typically pitch into 25l/5g about 22g/1oz of yeast.
- almost forgot get some extra sanitising chemicals, things can never be too clean.
And, as always good luck and have fun!
