Found 15th Nov 2013
Poking about looking for a home brew kit for one of the guys in work and found Tesco had reduced the Coopers kit by £20. Everything you'd need for £50. Bargain!

The bobbins:

The DIY Beer Kit includes everything needed to make 23 litres of great tasting beer
Includes a patented fermenter that makes brewing even easier and quicker, an easy to read plastic hydrometer specifically made for beer,
Includes an Instructional DVD ROM to answer all your brewing questions.

Still seems steep to me.

Fermenting Bin £10
Hydrometer £3.50
Trial Jar £2.50
Coopers Kit £14
Mixing Spoon £1.30
Enhancer £6
Strip Thermometer £1.50

£38.80 at wilko, granted no dvd or carbonation drops. Carbonation drops are sugar? 1/2 tsp per 500ml bottle will do same thing.

Might want to consider this (contains a pressure barrel):
wilko.com/cid…949

I think they get their stuff from the same suppliers.

Yes, both OOS

Rather than "a teaspoon of sugar per bottle", I usually boil some water in a pan for a few minutes, pour all but half a cup or so of it away, and then add 85g of sugar to the remaining water and dissolve it. Then pour this into your bottling bucket as you start to siphon your brew from the fermentation bin into the bottling bucket. This is cheaper than carbonation drops, allows you to more precisely control the degree of carbonation per bottle and ensures the carbonation is consistent across all bottles in the 40 pint batch. Adding sugar to each bottle is imprecise, time consuming and unnecessarily fiddly.

You missed out the bottle wand, bottles and caps. I was given one of the Wilkinsons kits when I started and its basic. Very basic. I would have been much happier with a Coopers set. My own experience of course.

Still overpriced.

You cannot compare a Wilkinsons Fermenting bin with this Coopers all in one with a tap ..The Coopers one is top quality and I would never go back to using fermenting bins again....with the Coopers one you dont need to use airlocks another bonus.
Its £69 in most places and I've never seen it cheaper then £59......Bargain at £49

FYI - these are now showing as in stock on the website.

amazing deal,
I've been brewing for about 2 years now using a similar kit but to have the tap on barrel & not need an airlock makes this a no brainer… a little late to get a brew on & matured ready for Xmas… but it should be just about ready for new year ;-)

Looking to get a kit for my husband ,
Which is the best to get ? All bits included
