I am not sure why nobody has so far stated the obvious.... if you as the parent of an 11 yo purchase brewing equipment for him you are breaking the law....

How can anybody even suggest that he starts with

My family aren’t from England. Our culture is different. We are happy for kids to have watered down (or very laminaided down) alcohol. Only if I give it to him.
It is legal in the uk for it to be sold to me and for him to make it and consume a small amount.

He’s finishing fermenting his beer now. We are buying wine next. He’s loving it.
Thank you everyone for for advice

If you live in another country then you must follow the law of that country.

I don't know where you live.

However, if you live in the UK you must follow the law of the UK which I detailed in my previous post.

Either way, , that doesn't change my last paragraph -

I agree, it would be unwise and irresponsible to allow an 11 year old to brew an alcoholic substance.

There are plenty of other things in science that he can safely play with and wine and beer are not two of them
