    Nice smell. Small, expensive package, November 14, 2008

    I bought this as a gift for my son. We haven’t made the root beer yet, but we are sure looking forward to it. The package has a wonderful smell of root beer.

    From the packaging, I expected there to be much more to it and its contents. Here is what you get:

    One 2 oz bottle of “Rainbow Flavors” Homebrew root beer extract (readily available for just over six bucks elsewhere).
    One packet of Red Star Pasteur Champagne yeast (readily available for under a dollar elsewhere).
    One standard 3-inch funnel.
    Four standard blank labels.
    One photocopied sheet of paper with instructions (readily available all over the web).
    The 5″ tall cardboard container pictured above(from the rest of the contents, this must therefore be worth about 8 dollars)
    Not included: bottles.

    So buy this product if you really like the packaging. Otherwise, order it much cheaper from a local or web-based source.

    The “Product Features” for this product makes it seem like it comes with recycled bottles, which it definitely does not.
    The kit is small and in my opinion, overpriced. It simply contains a small packet of yeast, some root beer extract, and some plain white blank office labels like you put on envelopes and can get at OfficeMax.

    The root beer we made did come out excellent, however, for what’s included this kit is definitely not worth the price.

    Oh boy….empty bottles., March 11, 2008

    Okay…so I’m the first to review…empty bottles? I’m new to the homebrewing game since a friend gave me a Mr. Beer kit for Christmas. I ordered these empties from Amazon just before starting my first batch (it’s still fermenting).

    First, I was amused by the title: Mr. Beer Deluxe Bottling System? Jeez, talk about dressing up a sow’s ear into a silk purse. About like calling a ballpoint pen a ‘deluxe manual writing instrument’. If you read the word ‘system’ and thinking there would be hoses, funnels or other stuff, you’d be wrong. Just 8 bottles, 8 caps and 8 lables. All joking aside, the bottles seem quite sturdy, and the caps fit nicely. I was a little amazed by the large size: 1 US quart each. That will be a big change for someone like me who is use to sipping beer 12 ounces at a time. But if I’m doing my math right, even these eight bottles won’t be enough, since the Mr. Beer kegs hold 2 and 1/2 gallons. Need to have a couple of other bottles for the extra that will be left.

    These PET bottles seem well-made and should work well, but I’ll write a follow-up if necessary. I do want to add that I think these plastic bottles will work best for amateurs like me for the exact reason Mr. Beer explains in their manual: The second part of fermentation takes place in the bottle, when the brew self-carbonates. If you’re using glass, it’s almost impossible to tell if the beer has carbonated, unless you open it. But with the plastic, you just squeeze the bottle. Just like the 20 oz. bottles of soda you buy at the store, if the beer is fully carbonated (and under pressure), the bottle will be rock hard.

    Hope this helps someone who may be thinking of getting these bottles. Yeah, glass may be more ‘high class’ but if you drop a glass bottle…or God forbid something goes wrong and the brew explodes out of the bottle, it’ll only happen once. Plastic won’t shatter like glass, so the safety factor alone is worth the money.

    These bottles come with the more expensive Mr Beer kit but if you are like me and didn’t get the bottles with your kit and/or realized you wanted to brew more than one batch at the same time these are both perfect for the job and pretty good value for money. Each set of 8 bottles will perfectly hold a full fresh batch of beer. You get 8 one litre plastic bottles that are brown in color to help keep the beer fresh and away from direct sunlight. I actually keep my bottles of beer in the carry box that comes with the bottles as this guarantees that they are always away from the light that is bad for the beer. Being plastic also helps the first time brewer. The Mr Beer kits use an in bottle fermentation stage. If you get this stage wrong, it can result in glass bottle alternatives exploding which can be both messy and dangerous. These plastic bottles let you feel how pressurized they currently are. When rock hard, your beer is done. It should be noted that you can use regular soda bottles after you have finished using them but I found it hard to locate brown, 1 litre bottles. These are also reusable so just get enough to brew the beer you intend to store at one time.

    This product was as received and it works good for what you need it for. If you want better bottled beer though, Buy a case of Grolsch flip top bottles from your local beer store. They are a little pricey, but you get to drink the beer that is already in them, and then save the bottle for your Mr. Beer collection.
