I'm in the Portland,Maine area attending college and want to get into home brewing. I've brewed before*at a friends a few times but looking to be able to do it on my own.*
As most college kids I'm pretty broke that's why I'm looking for used equipment I basically need everything, I have a 5.5 gallon kettle but I sorta want bigger to do all grain but im more interested in carboys, bottling buckets, cappers, siphons etc. Anything anyone can help me with would be great! Thanks!

Most of the online homebrew sites have pretty good deals on starter kits. This is often more cost effective than piecing things together, plus it's easier because you don't have to worry about what you might not know to get.

That said, people often sell old equip for pretty substantial discounts, so hopefully you can find what you need. Welcome to the hobby!

There is a groupon from Midwest supplies that comes up a few times a year. It's a good deal on a starter kit and ingredient kit + $25 g/c to their site. Watch for that. Homebrew Finds will list it usually when it does pop up so watch that site as well. Glad to see another northeast brewer. I grew up in southern Maine.

Here's the details of what you get with it. This one is dead but just so you know if another one pops up. Homebrew Finds: Midwest Groupon Deal

Check your local craigslist. There's always someone selling off their gear.

Thanks for the info guys! I have been trying to catch that Midwest groupon for a while now somehow I missed the last time it was up.

I check Craigslist a bunch but I thought I'd ask here as well thought I'd have better luck here plus I just discovered this site haha.

Sign up for HomebrewFinds. He typically posts when that Groupon deal is active.

Edit: Zeekage beat me to it!
