Default Teaching my college students

I am teaching a class for my students and were doing brewing / fermentation so we can study the processes of fermentation.

Looking for some slightly used equipment.

Who ever donates has the right to beer that is brewed up.

As not all my students in class are 21.

Shipping will be covered by myself or school.

I will post Pictures of time line in this thread.

Any help would be great.

You can't be upset that nobody wants to give away slightly used equipment in exchange for experimental homebrew.
Buying a starter kit from a shop and doing BIAB will probably cost the same as shipping a bunch of brew across the country. Plus, you'll have all you need to continue brewing.

Maybe if you would have given a little more info you might have gotten a few responses. Just asking for donations without something as simple as a location or the name of the college is not going to get a lot of responses.

Also it is your first post so you have not gained a lot of respect yet.

Fergsbrew, it sounds like you're teaching at college or community college level if even some of your students are over 21. I'm sure you could find lots of equipment in the biology and chemistry departments that could be repurposed for brewing, assuming they're pretty clean.

I had a brewery in my town let us use there lab. I would not be able to keep equipment it would have become school property. There's a lot of politics in using school chemistry equipment due to chemicals used in them could be unsafe. I will post pics of our journey.

Thanks for everyone's input I should have reached out local first. I live in An Arbor mich so it was a brain fart not to ask.

If people would be a bit more open to talking I would have. The school gave me 5k to spend if I would have put that in post people could have been scaming me.

Why are you asking for handouts when you have $5k to spend? It is deceiving to ask for a handout (a handout in a specified condition no less) when the school has given you money to spend on equipment, without mention of this. It sounds like you are the one doing the scamming. Basic brewing equipment is pretty cheap (especially considering your budget) if you'd take five minutes to do very minimal research on it.

Then being pissy when nobody offers you up free equipment (with no posting history) is just icing on the cake.
