Hey guys I'm glad to have found this place. Im wanting to start brewing and Im very ignorant on the subject. Im a very avid drinker and I wanted to start brewing not only as a hobby but to reduce the cost of my intake. I've delved into allot of information to get started. I know it's pricey to get into but there's allot of conflicting ideas about the best (and economical) way to go about it. Im wanting to start big because you know buy once cry once. So I was thinking about starting with a 1bbl set up. As I said I know very little on the subject I know I need to start with a brew kettle I've seen the process but my friend just uses his stove and i think 3 gallon carboys and a bucket that's it. I was thinking about a 55 gallon brew pot maybe like this. Blichmann BoilerMaker G2 Brew Kettle - 55 gal. | MoreBeer. But is it worth it to spring the extra 600 bucks for the electric heated one by the same company? And after that where do I start? I know I need a fermenter and a chiller but that's about the span of my knowledge. I was thinking about fermenting in these because they seem really budget friendly but bad idea? Speidel Plastic Fermenter - 120L / 31.7 gal.. Of course pretty much everything it recommends with it. Thanks allot if you read this and I would really appreciate the input and suggestions you may have.
