I haven't started brewing yet, because of space. But that problem is about to be solved. I just found this on Craigslist for $100, but its about 3 hour drive from me. Think it would be worth the drive. I also asked if he might be heading anywhere near me anytime soon.

EVERYTHING NEEDED TO BREW BEER AT HOME!! 1- 5 GALLON CARBOY,1- 5 GALLON CARBOY FERMENTATION LOCK, 1- 6.5 GALLON CARBOY, 1-6.5 GALLON CARBOY FERMENTATION LOCK, 1- 5 GALLON BUCKET WITH SPICKET, 1- WORT CHILLER, 1- THERMOMETER, 1- HYDROMETER, 1- CARBOY/BOTTLE CLEANING HOSE ATTACHMENT, 1- CARBOY BRUSH, 1- BOTTLE BRUSH, 1- BOTTLE IODINE, 1- FUNNEL, 1- 6FT. CLEAR HOSE, 1- SYPHON TUBE, 1- FLOW CONTROL BOTTLING TUBE, 1- BOTTLE CAPPER, 1- BAG OF BOTTLE CAPS, 1- HOW TO VIDEO, 1- BOOK OF RECIPES. EVERYHTING IN IMMACULATE CONDITION.

How much? I'd also deep six the tubing and get new stuff, its cheap and not worth ruining a batch with dirty/contaminated tubing. Good find

That price doesnt sound too bad, try to offer him a little less. The only turn off for me would be the six hours of driving to get the stuff.

yeah....that's why I asked him if he would just happen to be coming anywhere near me, or just anywhere closer anytime soon.....if so, I figure I might could meet him.

So you're getting:

1- 5 GALLON CARBOY
1- 6.5 GALLON CARBOY
1- 5 GALLON BUCKET WITH SPICKET
1- WORT CHILLER

For $100? I'd say thats pretty decent. I don't think I'd drive 6hrs for it but otherwise the price is right. I'd say all the other stuff is just that...stuff

For used equipment I think it is too much, or maybe I just got lucky.
I recently got;
7- glass 6 gallon carboys with airlocks
7- fermentation buckets with airlocks
1- Cornelius keg
1- 20lb CO2 tank with regulator (half full of CO2)
1- bottling spigot
7- Select premium wine kits (they sell for around $120/ea)
10- cases of wine bottles
6- cases of brown capper bottles
racking canes, a wine thief, wine corks, wine corker, and lots of misc small equipment for $100

i am sure you can get a cheaper as in allot less gas money in a brand new kit in one of your local lbhs. i know the lbhs i spent 169.

something to consider. and since your starting out you can hold on on that and just go with the basic kit. http://www.highgravitybrew.com/produ...idProduct=2546 would cost the same as what your getting with shipping but if you bought it local i am sure you could get it for less.
