I have recently been considering brewing, and after talking it out with a friend we have decided to take the plunge. Neither of us can can make a large initial investment, but we think we have a list of what we need, but i would love to have an experienced person tell us if we are missing something important (U know like a fermentor
here is the list
3 X 5 gallon bucket
1 x Airlock
(Rubber Stopper, Drill bit, clear flexible tubing, Pitcher)
1 X Large Pot
1 X Wooden or Plastic Spoon
1 x Plastic bucket lid
1 X Racking Cane
1 x Hydrometer
1 x Submerislbe thermostat
Once we have convinced our signifigant others that this is a hobby they can benifit from we are hoping to improve our equipment, but we think we can do this list for under 50 bucks Our initial brew is going to be an attempt at hard apple cider. We have researched this for hours, hoping to avoid as many rookie mistakes as possible, but any extra pointers are welcome. Today is Monday, and we are going to purchase our supplies and begin the brewing process on sat.
ALSO!! would rather use a sanitation tablet to remove wild yeasts rather than simmering the apple cider for 30 mins, would love to know cost to benifit ratio.
After hours of reading, I have found this website to be full of knowlable and considerate people, and have chosen to make this site my home, ty for the chance to join your family of brewmasters!!
