My first ever beer that I made was a 100% extract import stout that I didn't even boil. My setup was a 6gal bucket w/spigot, airlock, bottling wand, tube, and bottle caps w/capper. I used recycled beer bottles that I soak in hot water and bleach in my sink, scraped the labels off with a razor blade and rinsed off with more hot water. I ran the bottles through my dishwasher with no soap before bottling.
After that I moved on to partial mashes. For my first partial mash I used the same pot I make pasta in. I later upgraded to a 4gal aluminum pot from Sam's Club for $30.00.
I still use my pasta pot to make 1gal batches of soda.
