next step, kits.

Post by jason1973 »

i'm just waiting for a batch of MR beer to carbonate.
and all ready have itch to up my game, but wish stay kits for a while.
question brewers best or coopers?
i was thinking coopers cause can get with all my equipment.
also until i get a induction burner will need do partial boils, what exactly involved in process?
will keep mr beer for small batch stuff like stout and other types i like odd time.

If this is the fermenter with the lid that pops off, then yes you can ferment anything in it. I would personally buy a carboy. Those plastic better bottles with the wider mouth are great.

I wasn't too familiar with them but did a quick google, shouldn't be a problem as Reignman said. You can pretty much ferment in anything as long as its food grade and can be cleaned and sanitised (hopefully easily). I can't get glass carboys around here and don't like the idea of shipping them so I just use the plastic bucket-style fermenter, easy to clean, easy to carry...
