Equipment on a budget

So, I know and fully understand that you shouldn't skimp on equipment and will get a better product if you're using the proper tools (as is the case in any task).

My main question is:

This was based on several recipes I bastardized together, most of which referenced using the spices and sounded pretty tasty to me.

Hi guys, I'm very new to understanding wine brewing vs beer brewing and had considered this route to start (mainly for cost reasons).

Does anyone have a good step-by-step for concentrate brewing?
