John Palmer book (Free to read online)

Great places to buy your equipment, first beer kit, and cleaning (PBW), and sterilizing (Star-San) solutions **

Here are the latest prices for a Basic equipment kit plus shipping. The kits differ in sizes of primary buckets, but all will yield the common 5 gallon batch. Another small difference between the kits are the cleaners that come with it (didn't use the one that came with mine). Remember you will still need: Beer kit, Brew kettle, bottles, cleaning and sterilizing solutions. This is the equipment and shipping only...

_____ Basic kit + Shipping = Total

Midwest: $59.95 + $11.47 =$71.42

Austin hb $80.49 + $7.99 = $88.48

Northern: $79.99 + $7.99 = $87.98

** Note: PBW and Starsan are recommendations. There are other alternatives that might save you money, or clean in a different style. These are the two products many use, and are very simple, and produce great results.

Avoid the kits that don't give you a full ingredient list (such as William's). They may make fine beer, but you won't learn much from them.

I'm talking beer ingredient kits, not equipment kits.
