Complete was of money. Didn't even get to try it. Had no chance to even try as it all went bad before I could use it. Every single packet was a crumbly mess. I didn't know there was such a short shelf life. Assumed it would be just like any other epoxy type putty and if unopened would have a long shelf life. I was wrong. I'll stick with epoxy putty like JB Plastic Weld which is what I used instead.
Purchased this for my 1998 4Runner work truck. Installation and setup is easy however for the first few stations I tried I got persistent static. Eventually I tuned it to a radio station which is actually active. So, not a blank radio station, but one that actually plays music - 107.9 in Miami. The sound went from annoying to perfect. I'm not clear why this changed the issue. I will update this post if I have any other feedback. So for new users having issues, I recommend trying a few different stations until you get a clear signal.
This kit is often frowned upon by so called "serious home brewers." They call it too simple. At that I scoff. There is no such thing. While I only do small batch brewing, I have five one gallon fermenters I keep going at all times so there is always plenty of beer flowing at my house, I thoroughly enjoyed using this kit. It it far faster if you use Mr. Beer's recipes or refills, doesn't smell up the house with a 45 minute-2 hour boil, holds more beer than my other fermenters and is Amber colored plastic which is not as breakable or as prone to skunking from light. It is simple, wonderfully so, but you can make it as complex as you want. You can easily design your own recipe for this LBK (Little Brown Keg) and have more diversity in your brews as opposed to making five gallon batches. Plus it includes two standard refills, in this case Classic American Light and Grand Bohemian Czech Pilsner. You can often find refills discounted at various stores or catch specials from Mr. Beer's website. Also, while I like glass bottles, plastic had its merits, too. Not breakable, easy to tell when carbonated just by feeling how hard the bottle is, and reusable. I've seen beer last for a year in the plastic bottle and still have adequate carbonation. Comes with sanitizing cleaner (a key component to good brewing), carbonation drops (which are handy), and an easily attached spigot that makes bottling your beer a breeze, as opposed to trying to run a bottling wand and siphon by yourself. It truly is a great introduction into brewing or a great addition to a seasoned brewer's arsenal. Cheers!
