Starter Equipment - Seven Bridges Cooperative Kit

(1/1)

scooteroo:
Hi All,

I'm curious if anyone has had experience with the Seven Bridges Cooperative starter kit.

http://www.breworganic.com/singlestagebreweryglasswithorganicbeerkit.aspx

It strikes me as more complete, and perhaps better quality, than some of the others I've seen online -- but the Amazon reviews are mixed.

Thanks so much for any help or feedback.

Well, without the book and the beer kit I just calculated that you could buy all of that stuff from NB for $87.12.  Also that kit doesn't include either a hydrometer or a thermometer (other than the stick on, which I included in my price) and I also included an autosiphon rather than the racking cane.  NB might not have the best prices, I just used it as a reference, but I'd suggest exploring piecing together the equipment you need rather than buying a kit.

Edit - And sorry, that's www.northernbrewer.com if you haven't been there before.  Like I said, there may be better prices out there, that's just what I used in a quick and dirty comparison to that kit.

Also, check out this thread for other places to shop for stuff:

Just looking around a little more on the NB site I found this kit which is comparable, but better, as it includes a thermometer, hydrometer, autosiphon, bottling bucket, and more bottle caps.

That said, it's the same price as the one you quoted and doesn't include an ingredient kit.  Even so, this is a better deal I think.  But don't take my word for it.  Go look around and see if you can piece things together yourself for a better deal.

I started out with a similiar kit, but have seen some steals on craigslist.
