Been interested in home brewing for a while now and ordered some gear tonight. Just trying to find out if there is anything I am missing and should get as well. This is what I bought.

From midwestsupplies.com/ I got:
Airlock 3 piece type x2
-EVERYTHING + A CARBOY - Complete Brewing Equipment Kit #2
Carboy Type
Better Bottle
Recipe Kit
Amber Ale
-8" Funnel with Strainer
-Nylon Boiling bag 8 x 9 in.
-Liberty Cream Ale w/ Munton's 6 gm dry yeast
-EZ Cap Bottle Special - 1 Liter

From kegconnection.com/ I got:
-1 Cornelius Keg (or Firestone), 5 Gallon, Ball Lock (Pepsi Style) for Homebrew/Soda
-1 1 Keg Basic Keg Kit, Standard Kit, BALL LOCK


My plan is to bottle my first brew and keg the next two, just need to make sure I'm not missing anything. Thanks

Do you have a pot to boil the wort in? You'lll probably need a 3 to 4 gallon pot for a partial boil. however if you have a bigger pot to do a full boil(6 to 8 gallons) plus a propane burner, or some other heat source, to do a full boil that would be even better but isn't necessary.

Don't need a kegerator, but you'll probably want to keep them cold for consuption without having to keep buying ice. You can just stick them in the fridge and use picnic taps instead of actual tap, only catch is you would have to open the fridge to dispense, which isn't the end of the world either.
