9 Best Home Beer Brewing Kits 2022
Chugging down a bottle or glass of taproom-crafted beer can be a hand-to-god, born-again experience. I mean, goodness, you’re gulping down a perfect constellation of grains, flavored hops, yeast, and water that’s been turned into frothy, delicious alcohol! Magic. Just makes you proud to be a beer lover.
Brewing beer is an art. And the next best thing to being a beer drinker is a being a beer maker who can whip up a lip-prickling batch of IPA or stout from a stockpot and a carboy and funnel it straight to the vessel, piecemeal, and serve. Contrary to how that all sounds, it isn’t as grueling or scientific as it sounds. All you need is a complete home beer brewing kit.
So if you’re ready to roll up your sleeves, we’ve picked out 9 of the best at-home beer brewing kits. There are traditional brewing rigs that require flexing a few muscles, as well as tech-forward options not unlike those used in professional breweries. Grab one—and some koozies or beer growlers while you’re at it—and start crafting your next crispy malt.

The duration of brewing grains and hops and yeast is long enough to… well, it’s just very long. Three or four hours. Mr. Beer, suave as it sounds, cuts that time down to just half an hour with its included hopped malt extract—meaning you can swear off pots, strainers, and other large brewing equipment. It’s a novice way of brewing a batch of beer that keeps the process as simple as possible: just combine the extract with water and yeast, and wait for the fermentation to finish. No fuss.
