To the best of my knowledge they use little partial batches. No one else
sells the extract in those sizes so you are stuck buying their stuff.
I'd say go to your local shop and get setup to do a full batch (19L or
23L depending on where you are from). You'll have a lot more choices of
kits and it is quite simple. Plus I don't think you'd be spending much
more than mr beer to get started (and your overal cost per batch will be

I was using a Mr. Beer up until a few weeks ago when I bought a regular
kit... I am still going to use the Mr. Beer for making specialty beers,

drinkable but you wont get as good results as you would with a full
setup. plus as stated above the cost per batch is more with Mr. Beer.
and they don't ship anywhere outside the US/UK. You can use other malt
extracts, you just have to estimate how much you need and properly save
the rest of the malt for the next batch. But I like having both setups
I think someone asked the same question only a weekago. The best
response I heard was something like this.
For the same price of MR. Beer, you can get a start-up kit, and MR.
Beer cannot be 'expanded/upgraded' like a normal startup kit.
