Equipment

In this section we will log all of our equipment, give some recommendations, and even to point out what to avoid.  We started off with a simple Kit for brewing beer.  Our lack of experience helped guide us into the direction of having and all-in-one system to start out with.  This primitive kit is good for now, but I’m sure it will be evolving in the near future.

We look to add equipment where ever needed.  We are looking to explore no traditional items along with modifying equipment to fit our brewing needs.  We plan on utilizing a full keg that was “left behind” in the near future.   Also we will try to give some prices so you can compare what you find available in your area vs an online retailer.  Personally, if you have the means, buy local.  Not only are you helping a local business person, but you are also keeping a store open for others that need it there.

If you know of any modifications we should make, items we are missing, or some crazy idea to build, let us know we are always open for some new ideas.
