BSG's K6 Homebrew Beer Equipment kit includes all the conveniences you get with the K3 kit, like an automatic pump-style siphon, an adhesive thermometer for the primary fermenter, and a full 27-page beginner's guide. But instead of two 6.5 gallon buckets, the K6 has a 7.8 gallon bucket and a 6 gallon glass carboy. The 6 gallon glass carboy is good for secondary fermentations, but is big enough to house primary fermentation of a standard 5 gallon batch. The 7.8 gallon bucket is perfect for bottling, and is also a great choice for primary fermentation. Moreover, with these larger-capacity containers, it's possible to brew up to 6 gallons in a single batch.
The K6 Home Brew Beer Equipment Kit includes:
7.8 Gallon Bucket with Drilled and Grommeted Lid
6 Gallon Glass Carboy with Rubber Stopper
3-Piece Airlock (for Fermenting Bucket)
Adhesive Thermometer (for Fermenting Bucket)
Automatic Pump-style Siphon with 5' of Flexible Tubing
Dual Function Bottle Filler (" OD)
Bottling Spigot with Bottle-fit Spout

7.8 Gallon Bucket with Drilled & Grommeted Lid: Food-grade plastic bucket, includes durable lid that has been drilled and grommeted for use with an airlock or blow-off valve.
6 Gallon Glass Carboy with Rubber Stopper: Airtight and easy to sanitize, it will not hold odors after fermentation and will not break down over time.
3-Piece Airlock (for Fermenting Bucket): When filled with fluid, it creates a closed system that allows CO2 to escape, but prevents air or impurities from contaminating your beer. Disassembles easily for cleaning and sanitizing.
Adhesive Thermometer (for Fermenting Bucket): A liquid crystal display thermometer designed to monitor temperature by adhering to your fermenting bucket or carboy, avoiding the sanitation concerns of immersion thermometers.
Automatic Pump-style Siphon with 5' of Flexible Tubing: It's single stroke action and removable tip allow you to draw a siphon without disturbing sediment, and it is designed for smooth, leak-free operation.
Dual Function Bottle Filler (" OD): Attach the bottle filler to 1/8" ID tubing, attach the tubing to a siphon or bottling spigot, and then push down to begin filling the bottle and lift up to quickly stop the flow. It has a removable spring if you prefer to use a springless bottle filler.
Bottling Spigot with Bottle-Fit Spout: Spout fits easily in bottles to make bottling quick, easy, and leak-free.
Glass Triple Scale Hydrometer: Measures the specific gravity of a sample using balling, potential alcohol, and specific gravity scales; packing tube can be used as a test jar.
Twin-lever Capper: Double levers provide added leverage and a smoother crimping motion, and a magnet in the bell housing holds your bottle cap in place, making bottling quick and easy.
Beer Bottle Brush: Straight brush fits easily into 12, 16, and 22 oz bottles, and is long enough to clean their entire interior surfaces, including the hard-to-reach bottom of the bottle.
8 oz of B-BRITE Cleanser: Powerful multi-purpose cleanser that cleans with active oxygen, effectively removes beerstone and other fermentation residue.
HandCraft Brewing Guide: An excellent beginner's primer, and the best description available for brewing with today's equipment kits.
