First post so go easy.

This looks like a pretty reasonable price to get all the equipment required to start brewing.

There is a recipe kit included, but be aware it is beyond its best before date.

Kit Includes:

• Block Party Amber Ale recipe kit
• 6.5 gallon fermenter w/ lid & bubbler airlock
• Bottling bucket w/spigot assembly
• Bottle filler
• 5 gallon (18.93 litre) stainless brew kettle
• 21” stainless spoon
• Siphon, 5 ft. (1.52m) siphon tubing & siphon tube holder
• Cleaner/sanitizer - Oxygen Wash
• Bottle brush
• Royal crown bottle capper & 60 caps

I've picked up a thermometer and hydrometer seperately.

Good starter kit, beer you can make from it is bot actually too bad either, good amount of reusable kit for people starting out.
If its 5g , does it give you Corona?

You beat me to it
'It’s a very drinkable brew – one that will have the neighbours round.'

Uh-oh.
Seems like a good kit for the price. Its a shame the kettle isn't 32L to enable you to do 5 gallon brew in the bag all grain kits which will give you much better results. I would also recommend getting a Basic Keg as the beer always tastes better. I always do 30 pints in the keg and 10 bottles.
Well worth the price as it contains everything including the brew kettle (big pot)I got this kit in Dec 2018 and have only just had the time to get it brewed (lockdown's not all bad). the only accessories that I've added to those provided is a thermometer I'd suggest one to stick on the bucket costing around £2-£3 and a hydrometer at about £10 so you can check alcohol content.
also you'll need to save up a lot of glass bottles (60ish) for the provided caps. or end up filling 2L plastic ones like I did when you don't have enough!
Could you do this in a garden shed or would it be too hot during summer?

It may get too hot. It all depends on the strain of yeast and types of beers. Optimum temps are between 18-22c although you can go fairly low with lagers. A consistent temperature is what you want and remember when its is fermenting the temp can also rise a few degrees.

It’s been. While since I did any home brew but from what I remember it needs to be left in a warm place to encourage the fermentation. It may get too cold overnight though ?

I use an older version of this kit and you need to keep the temps fairly set. Depending on the brew it gives guidelines on the ideal temps Lager is a colder fermentation whilst ale and stout like it warmer. It's all down to the yeasties.

The included brew is 57f-77f (14c - 25c) i'd recommend keeping it in the house as those temps are easier to maintain.

I have adhesive thermometer attached to the side of my vessel makes it even easier to monitor the internal temps
Looks like a good deal. Thanks!
Will the recipe kit still be good to use even though it is out of date, or would you need to look at getting something else?

EDIT; Quick Google sounds like it will be fine!

If someone one want to get cheap, not tasty beer, could buy it. Better to brew full grain beer. Anyone could do it at kitchen, with basic kitchen appliances. As a result - better taste than this extract kit..

No, but be careful somebody doesn't pop round and set it on fire!

Can you recommend any good guides. I was going to buy this kit but would like to know what other options are available
I bought this kit from Beerhawk a couple of years Go, it's great. Using it now to brew an Ace of Spades Black IPA °
