This kit has a few different things than I have used in the past.

My airlock is not S-Shape. I never used a 3 ft. Clear Vinyl Tubing (5/16" I. D.) , a Easy Auto Siphon Cane/Plunger unit or Bottling Bucket. I have only use the one Six Gallon Plastic Fermenting bucket. Never the second. I guess things have changed over the years. :dontknow:

I just bought a Brewcraft Munich Lager Beer Ingredient Kit yesterday and saw it called for this extra stuff. Wow I am confused now. :help:

Did you buy this set-up?

Secondary buckets are not absolutely necessary. Many people just leave the beer in primary for a longer period of time. The pot with that kit looks a bit small, but will work OK for starting out or starting over.

I just bought the Brewcraft Munich Lager Beer Ingredient Kit and started the research on the net after seeing they want the second bucket.
