Less Equipment, Better Results
Other starter kits in the market include a long list of equipment that require a whole lot of space and clean up; we’re talking about multiple buckets, carboys, tubing, siphons, funnels, multiple airlocks, etc... Our revolutionary 5 Gallon Beer Kit has condensed all these tools into one sleek and functional design, the Catalyst Fermentation System.

Simplifying the post-brewing process
with the Catalyst Fermentation System
Our Five Gallon Beer Kit - New Brewer Starter Kit includes our innovative Catalyst Fermentation System. We’ve eliminated the need to siphon and transfer your beer during fermentation, and we included a bottling attachment making it easier than ever to make great craft beer at home.
Fermenting Beer with the Catalyst

Secondary Fermentation & Aging
Close the valve, detach the jar containing sediment and discard.
Prime Your Beer

Screw on the bottling attachment along with the transfer tubing and open the valve to begin.
How much beer is it?
Five Gallons of beer is the same as 50 Swing-top bottles. Now that’s a party.
"BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER!"
I recently got into home brewing and was looking to upgrade to a 5 gallon fermenter, so I was thrilled when I received the 5 Gallon Starter Kit for my birthday! The kit provided everything I needed to get up and running and is so much easier to use than a traditional siphon and jug kit. The instructions were very clear, the fermenter was easy to set up and I cannot wait to try my first batch and use the kit for many brews to come!

"BEST BEER I'VE EVER TASTED!"
Just amazed, really... first time home brewing and the Catalyst made everything go very very smooth. My first recipe kit tasted just amazing, way better than I could have expected. Now fermenting my second batch, this system makes it so easy and FUN! I'll be home brewing with this for a very long time!!!

"DOUBLE IPA ANTICIPATION"
Just finished my first brew with your system and it couldn't have been easier! Started with a double IPA and after the first week the trap was loaded with sediment which will give me more beer in the end! Have a few more weeks before drinkable but I'm already for the next batch!!! Great design!

We recently purchased the 5-gallon starter kit which included the Catalyst fermentation system. I had once tried home brewing using carboys and buckets, and I found this system to be way easier (and cooler!) to make our first batch of beer. We've been really happy with it so far, and we're making mead with it here soon! Thanks for thinking out of the box to make home brewing easier and even more enjoyable. :)

This catalyst system with it’s one container design is amazing. The recipe kit that it comes with was so easy to follow. I was nervous, so I started with a one-gallon Milk Chocolate Stout, and it turned out excellent! Glad I started small, learned a few things that I am eager to try on my next 5 gallon Bone Dry Stout! This is easy to follow, and hard to mess up. I cannot say enough for the Craft-a-Brew support too, very helpful! I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to get into brewing at home. Fairly certain I have found my new way to enjoy beer.

"GREAT SYSTEM FOR EASY HOMEBREW"
Backed this through kickstarter. It was my first brewing experience and I couldn't be happier. It's a great way to make the brewing process easy especially for beginners. Structurally, it is sturdy and had no issues whatsoever. Shipping was fast!
