HopBox: Handcrafted Homebrew Kit

first_img The Lampuga Air Inflatable Jetboard Is a Go-Anywhere Aqua Thrill Ride Editors’ Recommendations More often than not, the deeper you get into building a serious home brewing operation, the more it starts to look like an oversized chemistry set. To be fair, that’s exactly what it is when you really get down to it, but just because you’re fermenting some stuff doesn’t mean your garage needs to look like a mad scientist’s laboratory.HopBox is a solution to this problem. Designed by architecture student and avid home brewer Michael Langone, the HopBox kit includes everything you need to start brewing: carboys, C02 regulators, siphon tubes, strainers, bottles, hops, barley, yeast — the whole shabang, all fitted neatly inside a sturdy pine box. This way, not only does your brew station stay organized, it actually looks good. This thing wouldn’t be out of place in your living room — let alone your garage.Langone actually started making the boxes and selling them on Etsy, but (unsurprisingly) demand quickly outpaced supply, so now he’s launched a Kickstarter project to help scale up production. At this point in time he’s offering four different models. They vary in size, shape, and included components, but every kit will allow you to start brewing right away. The only difference is how much volume you can brew with each set.The Kickstarter campaign has already blasted past its initial funding goal, so if you back the project within the next couple weeks, you can lock a HopBox down for anywhere from $170 to $285. Langone expects to ship the first units sometime in late July/early August.Find out more here.
