big kettle (at least 8 gallons, preferably 9-10)
lauter tun (this is easy to make, a couple of food grade plastic buckets, some plastic tubing and a hand drill is all ya need, check out my gallery pics for an idea)
sparge arm/big spoon (you can make this too, or just use a ladel and gently ladel sparge h2o over grains)
propane/gas burner (this is kind of optional, but highly recomended for boiling 6+ gallons of wort)
thats it...its not that difficult, just time consuming. Everything else you probably already have, like a dairy thermometer, how-to books and what not.
hydrometer (to know when to stop collecting run-off)
iodine (for starch conversion test)
ph tester (to check acidity of mash/sparge h20)
mash tun (instead of mashing in the kettle you could use a converted cooler)
Bottled: Barbarian IPA
Up next: Configuration 9
