Pretty much my thoughts as well. These guys are 15minutes from my place so I wont get hit with shipping charges. I dont really care for the double handed bottler, looks like a pain to do by yourself. Other than bottles, caps, cooking equipment and cleansing products I think IM all set. What about an air vent for the second fermenting stage? Which one is generally a good one with a cap for the plastic carboy? Sorry for the questions guys, just tryin to get settled in with equipment.
