Brewing Beer at Home: Basic Equipment

In order to get started brewing your own beer at home you'll
only need some real basic equipment that is inexpensive
and is easy to find. If you're just getting started it is suggested
that you start basic and go from there.

You'll need a brewing pot will hold at least three gallons.
Another essential item you'll need is a fermenter.
For the average five gallon batch, the fermenter
needs to accommodate at least six gallons, allowing space
for a foam that will form during the energetic
process of fermentation.

For this stage, a glass carboy or food grade
plastic bucket is often used. You will also need
an airlock for your fermenter to allow the C02
to escape while also holding back air. A
siphon hose is also needed to transfer beer from
the fermenter when it's ready, without having
to mix air into it.

A bottling pail will also help to make the bottling
process much easier. Bottling buckets are
similar to fermenters, except the fact that they
have a spigot at the bottom that allows you to
fill the bottles directly, which makes the
entire process less messy and gets the bottling
process done much quicker. You'll also need a capper to
cap your beer bottle or you can use a keg
to store and serve your beer.

You don't have to search far to find a beer
brewing kit that includes everything needed to get
started with brewing beer at home. You
can find kits on the Internet, many of
which offer the top quality equipment you'll
need to brew your first batch. There are several
choice available to choose from.

If you're not interested in going the kit route, you can
search the internet and brewing shops for the needed
hardware and parts. This will take more time and
can add up to more money than buying a complete kit,
but if you're lucky and know exactly what you need,
you may find someone who wants out of their beer
brewing hobby they may give you a great deal on
their used equipment.

When you get all of the essential equipment
together, you should know how to use it prior to
you getting started. This way, you won't encounter
any troubles once you start brewing. The
equipment required for brewing is simple to use, so
you probably won't have any difficulties.

The hobby of brewing your own beer at home is
fun and rewarding. You can enjoy your own beer
which is affordable and fun to share it with your friends and family.
You'll even have fun sharing and showings others who
will no doubt take interest in you newly acquired brewing skill.
