Basic Glass Kit
I determined a couple things even before tasting my first batch. (1) I enjoy this hobby and will continue, (2) it's a lot of work and waiting for a 6-pack, (3) this kit did not include enough sterilizer, (4) cleaning and drying equipment will be difficult and tedious when I move up to larger batches. I decided to buy a standard homebrew starter kit for 5-gallon batches. This kit includes a glass carboy, plastic bottling bucket with spigot, larger funnel, blowoff hose, fermentation lock and bung, siphon tubing, "AutoSiphon", bottle filler, bottle brush, carboy brush, bottle capper, bottle caps, beer thief (for sampling), thermometer, hydrometer, and 8 oz One-Step Sanitizer.
