Some kits are the pits, some are pretty super, and you may or may not have known they existed. Here are my top picks for kits:
Homemade Debauchee Kit
While the tools in this kit can be used in making wine and beer, if you've already perfected the art of an exact blend of grapes and just the right hop combo for your brew, it's time to move on to another subdivision of drunkenness and beverage/food pairing. Strike up the grill this spring and serve a little saki with your stir-fry. Your friends will be impressed that you've learned a new skill and on birthdays and holidays you can pair it with a saki set for a unique, gift presentation.
