grain would help ad some more complex flavors, but no, you don't need that extra stuff unless you want to. I never have and my beer is great.

yeah buckets are the **** man! Spigots save a ton of time and money. Just get use bigger ones (mine are 8.5 gal) so you have plenty of head room so you don't need a blow-off tube.
