You’re ready to make your first batch of homebrew! But where do you start? What equipment and supplies do you need?
Don’t get overwhelmed... There are a variety of homebrewing equipment and ingredient kits readily available. These kits provide a quick and convenient way to get started, and you’ll be wondering why you didn’t become your own brewer sooner!
Basic and intermediate equipment kits contain everything the beginning brewer needs—except for the boiling pot, bottles and caps. However, complete kits will include the boiling pot, as well as a few other upgraded items.
Some of the items included in most kits are a primary fermenter with grommeted lid, bottling bucket with spigot, cleanser, siphon and bottling set-up, hydrometer, liquid crystal thermometer, bottle brush, twin level capper, airlock, auto-siphon, equipment instructions and a beer-making book.
Intermediate and complete kits also come with either a glass or plastic carboy.
Next, you get to decide what type of beer you would like to brew! You can create your own recipe by choosing from many malt extracts, types of hops, yeast and priming options. In the beginning though, you may want to select a beer ingredient kit. There are numerous varieties available to please every beer lover.
Customize your brew by selecting your own bottles and caps. You can even design and print your own labels.
The preparation and process may seem a bit daunting, but with the help of homebrewing kits—and a little time and effort—your home brewery will soon be up and running. Before you know it, you'll be enjoying your very own homebrew!
Our knowledgeable staff is always available to answer any questions or help you select equipment and ingredients.
Happy brewing from Lebanon Brew Shop!
