Home Brewing Beer Equipment

All your Home Brewing Beer Equipment is readily available because the internet has everything you need. You need a big container in which to brew your beer. You can use a Carboy or a big white plastic bin with lid that food comes in. You have to sterilize all your equipment of any bacteria. Otherwise, your new batch will spoil. Therefore, sterilize all your equipment before you start brewing. If you do not want your wort to spoil while it is fermenting, you must sanitize all your equipment.

Ideally, all your Home Brewing Beer Equipment should be made out of glass. Using a plastic container, the plastic tends to leech' into wort forming free radicals. These enter your body when you drink your home brewed beer. Therefore, you should use non-plastic containers for your home brewing beer equipment.

Home brewing equipment you will need to start brewing beer:

  • Brew Kettle: A five to eight gallon large stainless steel or ceramic-coated (enameled) pot. You boil all your beer brewing ingredients in this Kettle. This mixture is called wort.
  • Hydrometer: You will need a hydrometer to measure the specific gravity of your beer.
  • Thermometer: Is used to measure the temperature of your wort.
  • Fermenting and bottling containers: Each should be seven gallons a bigger.
  • Airlock and Rubber Stopper: You need a rubber stop or lock', which will keep the bacteria from entering and at the same time, allow the carbon dioxide to escape. These locks are made of glass and filled with water. The carbon dioxide bubbles through the water and at the same time keeping any bacteria out.
  • Siphon Hose: Is used to transfer your beer from the fermenting container to the bottling one.
  • Bottle Caps and Capper: To seal your beer bottles. Try to get one that can be mounted to a surface and be worked one handed.
  • Bottle Brush: Is the prime aid in your sanitation and sterilization fight.
  • Bottles: Avoid anything with threads on it - you will never be able to get the cap to seal the right way. You cannot keep the threads sanitized.

If you are imitated by the amount of equipment needed, then consider buying a kit. These kits contain all the home brewing beer equipment that will need to brew your own beer. Brewing your own beer at home is not complicated or difficult. It is just a series of steps.

Once you have all your home brewing beer equipment, you almost ready to start brewing your first batch of homebrew. Now you need to decide what style of beer to brew and to purchase the ingredients. Then happy brewing.
