After searching and researching and drinking a lot of beer whilst doing so, I have decided to start brewing. I don't like "kits" in hardly anything so I think I will piece something together with the the best of everything so that I can grow into my setup instead of out of it. What I have in mind now is a 5 and 6 gallon better bottle, couple of caps so I can pressure CO2 transfer from primary to secondary, already have a turker fryer with an attitude that with a new 30qt or so pot can really put the fire to the party. In addition I would like to use an air stone oxygen setup for after the wort cools.
I guess what I am looking for is having the best equipment I can so that as I move from extracts to all grain then my equipment is still good as things get more serious. I personally can't hardly choke down BMC but of course all of my friends drink it like water. Starting out with an Ale sounds like what everyone does and then from there I can move on to what I like, brown ales, porters and stouts. Just wanted to see what all you recommend as I continue reading howtobrew.com.
