Our Basic Five Gallon Brewing Equipment Kit provides nearly everything you'll need for your first batch of homebrew. All you'll need to provide is a 5 gallon brewpot and approximately 50 12 ounce bottles!
- 6.5 Gallon Bucket and Lid – This will be your primary fermenter, where your beer will sit for a few weeks after your brewday while you wait for the yeast to convert the sugar in your wort to alcohol.
- Three-piece Airlock and #2 Drilled Rubber Stopper – You'll stick these together, and into the top of your bucket lid, to ensure CO2 can get out, but no outside air can get into your fermenter.
- Adhesive Fermometer – Put this mini-thermometer sticker onto your fermenter to know the temperature at which you are fermenting.
- 6.5 Gallon Bottling Bucket with Spigot – This is the bucket with a hole in the bottom, which you will use to fill your bottles with finished beer. Spigot assembly included.
- 3' of 3/8” clear tubing – Used to connect your bottle filler to the bottling spigot.
- Bottle Filler – A spring-action tube that will make filling your bottles easy.
- Red Baron Bottle Capper – A simple tool for adding caps to bottles.
- One Step Cleaner – Combination cleaner and no-rinse sanitizer. Crucial for making sure the only microbes fermenting your beer are the ones you intended.
- Triple-Scale Hydrometer – A tool used to measure the density of your beer. The difference in density before and after fermentation tells you the alcohol content.
- Auto Siphon and 5' of 5/16" clear tubing – Used to effortlessly transfer your wort from kettle to bucket, or from fermenter to bottling bucket.
- Beer Bottle Brush – Use to clean beer bottles. DO NOT use this brush to clean your plastic buckets – it will leave scratches that can harbor bacteria and potentially make your beer taste bad. Instead, soak your plastic containers in One-Step Cleaner.
- Thermometer – Accurately measure the temperature of your wort on your brewday.
- Stainless Steel Spoon – Good for stirring your beer during the boiling stage!
- Brewing Handbook – A quick reference guide to brewing.
Pair these items with one of our ingredient kits, and you'll be more than ready to craft your first and finest batch of homebrew!
**We do recommend a wort chiller as an upgrade for your brewing experience.
