Personal Home Brewery Kit #2 Deluxe BRKIT2 with PET Fermenter:

Recommended For: Someone you know wants to start brewing.  They have brewed with a friend or are otherwise sold on it.

There are many good equipment kits out there.  I’m recommending this one because I own it and have produced an Illustrated Step by Step Guide on brewing beer with this.

An ingredient kit from your loved ones favorite local homebrew shop:

Recommended For: People that hang out at their LHBS

Does your loved one spend time at your local Local Homebrew Shop (LHBS)?  If so, swing in and ask the shop owner for advice.  If they are spending a good bit of time there, odds are good the shop owner will have a good suggestion on an appropriate ingredient kit or piece of equipment.


Recommended For: The person who wants socks for a gift.  If your loved one is no nonsense and practical, this one’s for you.  First… check to see if they use PBW in the first place.  If you notice a container lying around and they are a socks-for-a-gift person… bam.  Get a least the 4 lb size and the 8 lb size if your budget allows.  Avoid the 1 lb size.  That size isn’t a good value.

Craftsman Wrench Bottle Opener:

Recommended For: Any person.  This is tool quality bottle opener with a lifetime warranty.

24″ Stainless Whisk:

Recommended For: Any homebrewer that is making at least 5 gallon batches of beer.  If the homebrewer in your life doesn’t walk around with one of these on brew day (and they make at least 5 gallons of beer at a time) then this is a winner.  Check out my Hands on Review.
