First and Foremost, Welcome to the Hobby!!!
I got started with this as a hobby in 1992, and have been involved with it in one fashion or another since.
As far as what you need to get started, the Beginners kit Pappers posted for ya will do the trick. My only gripe about most "Kits' is that they usually come with a placstic Primary. Plastic only lasts so long. Sooner or later, you will need to buy another. If it were me getting into the hobby, I would get a Glass 6 or 6 1/2 gallon Carboy right from the get go. Glass will last a life time if cared for appropriately. I still have my first 6 1/2 gallon gallon carboy to this day (I know which one ot is by the Clinton Sucks Bumper Sticker on it).
But hey, that's my opinion and just as long as you get your first batch under your belt, It's all goodah!!!
