All-grain kits containing grains & hops & sometimes yeast also.

Malt extract kits contain dry, syrupy or liquid form of malt extract.

Overcarbonationcan be dangerous in home-brewing, resulting in gushing or even exploding of bottles.The safest approach to carbonation is to add priming sugar ormaltextract at bottling time to the beer containing no fermentable sugar. Kegs & special bottling equipment may also be used to force-carbonate a beer bottle by controlling the carbonation levels.

Reconditioned Cornelius Kegs are often used in home brewing for aging, filtering, and storing beer. Kegs in Berkeley may be available in special designs for this purpose.

Since all the kegs have residual pressure, which must be vented to avoid exploding of the valve to injure or kill a person. The Kegs are recommended not to be sanitized with bleach as that might leave unpleasant residuals.
