I bought the Mr. Beer Kit this spring and have not been disappointed with it at all. The ingredients that arrived with the kit were a can of West Coast Pale ale along with one step sanitizer, a package of booster and the brewing yeast packed beneath the lid of the West Coast Pale Ale extract. The kit also included plastic bottles, brew keg and lid, spigot, bottle caps, instructions -- everything you need for that first batch. I would suggest that you leave the beer in the keg for at least 10 days and in the bottle for 2 weeks before consuming. I was impatient the first time and followed their suggestion and tried the beer after one week in the keg and one more week in the bottle -- NOT A GOOD IDEA! The beer WAS fruity tasting - almost like a fizzy cider. Taste did improve after I left the remaining alone for another week or 2. Be patient: the end product is much more carbonated and tastier if you let it ferment a week longer and let it sit in the bottle for at least 2 weeks -- cool it in the fridge for a couple more weeks, too, if you can wait that long. I liked the results so much that I joined the brew club and have ingredients shipped (free shipping for club members) every 3 months. I've brewed their Canadian Draft with a Pale Export unhopped malt extract twice, St. Patrick's Irish Stout with Mellow Amber unhopped malt extract, and a Weisenbier with the included booster pack and an added 15 ounce can of apricots in light syrup (from the local supermarket). Each batch resulted in an excellent, good tasting brew. I like the end result so much that I prefer my home brew to store bought. When and if you decide to purchase this kit make sure to follow directions, sanitize everything that comes in contact with your wort, and be patient and let the beer ferment and condition for a bit longer than Mr. Beer recommends. You will not be disappointed. I like this kit because it produces a nice, drinkable brew in a manageable quantity. If you're thinking of trying home brewing this is the kit for you -- its a good starting point, and you can always upgrade to an extra brew keg!
On my 1999 Jeep Cherokee XJ the underhood light broke completely so I purchased a new one. Recieved this product in a couple of days and hooked it in place in a couple of minutes.
Weathertech mats are as expected...perfect. I bought these for my 2014 Ram 1500 Crew Cab and they work and look great. Worth the $$$.
