That’s the whole deal and an extra fermentor is only 10$ US I got 4 of them. I am NEVER with out beer and ill tell you I have saved allot of cash yeah I spent 100$ on the nice kit than an extra 40$ on the extra fermenter’s. However I have made a lot of beer over the past year and wow I am sure that I have saved more on the beer I make than I would have spent on store beer.

Listen I suggest that you make your own beer they sell hops and barely malted and none and other things to craft your own beer. I say that because there pre packaged stuff is good! But I find I like what I make by scratch more.

GO with the premium beers it is a lot more work involved you have to boil the barely mix oh no
but you will get a better product in the end! Believe me I like it and its fun.
