Beer is by far the most favorite drink around. In the United States alone 7.4 billion gallons were consumed in 2005. But the United States only site at number 13 as the country the drinks the most beer. The Czech Republic is at number 1 with Ireland, Germany and Australia filling in the number 2, 3 and 4th spots.
It’s no wonder that beer making equipment is in such high demand. While beer isn’t that hard to make, you will need the right equipment and ingredients if you want to be successful.
To start making your own beer you will need the following things:
A Fermenter with about a 2.5 gal capacity
1 can of your favorite beer mix
A single serving booster pouch
6 bottles (these can be plastic or glass)
This would be what you would get in a typical starter kit but if you are wanting to make beer on a larger scale then you will want to get one of the more advanced kits with all of the beer making equipment you will need.
Here is what you can expect to get in one of these kits.
A 5 to 6.5 gal fermenter bucket with a lid.
A 5 to 6.5 gal bucket with a spigot that is used for bottling
An airlock used during the fermenting process
A sanitizer kit
Tool for installing bottle caps
Stainless mixing spoon
A brew kit which has your ingredients in it
And step by step instructions
