Home Brewing Kit

I have decided to try my hand at home brewing a beer for myself. there are no Local home brewing shops in my county so its online for me. Otherwise its a 100 mile round trip, sod that i can get delivered for fiver.

Ordered a BrewSmarter Premium Starter Beer Kit with is the bottler and heater belt and a 33lt fermenter & Coopers Canadian Blonde kit as a upgrade. Got the Brewing sugar as recommended and the Coopers Carbonation drops. Also got various paddles and a capper for glass bottle then bought 2 packs of Coopers Ox-Bar 500ml PET bottles as they are supposed to keep the beer good for longer with a special coating.
