Mead Making Equipment Kit (Glass Secondary)
Has almost everything you need to start brewing. But why didn't they add a carboy brush? how are you supposed to clean it when you're done brewing? Also I just racked my mead to the carboy for secondary fermentation and the racking cane provided is total junk, it has an air leak at the plunger on the auto siphon that introduced air to my mead, this also means the the siphon would not continue on its own so I had to sit there and siphon by pumping the racking cane which with the introduction of air also stirred up some of the sediment, so now I will have to rack it again which I will do in about 3 months. I will throw the racking cane out and purchase a more expensive one when the time comes. If you are using this kit for wine a bad racking cane can turn a possible good wine into 5 gallons of vinegar.
I am brand new to mead making, so I called the the folks at Home Brewing for assistance. They were super helpful! I explained what I wanted to do and my worries of what to buy. I was given really great info that led me to buy the 5 gallon kit. This is the way to go! Everything is well made and came safely packaged for transport. I will definitely be buying from Home Brewing in the future.
My husband loves it. He's so excited to try his first mead. We did have a couple items that we're damaged in shipping but AIH sent replacements right away. Great service and product.
I had no problems in any stage of this order. Nothing came broke or missing and it is as advertised. I am currently on my first batch of mead and this kit is really a out of the box start up kit. I love it and will be back for more products in the future.
