Beginner Homebrew Kit $90.00 ($107 w/ Glass Carboy)

  • 1. Carboy/Fermenter - 6 gallon (Plastic) Used for holding beer during the fermentation stage.
  • 2. Plastic Bucket & Lid - 6 gallon Used to hold beer prior to bottling and for adding priming sugar. May also be used as a fermenter or bucket for holding sanitizing solution.
  • 3. Stopper Seals the fermenter and holds the airlock.
  • 4. Blow-Off Tube Used with the stopper to expel foam and CO2 from the fermenter.
  • 5. Airlock For allowing the release of CO2 gas during fermentation. To use: place in the stopper hole, place the stopper on the fermenter, remove the cap and half fill with water, replace the cap.
  • 6. Racking Cane Used to siphon from the fermenter. The tip prevents the yeast sediment from being drawn into the siphon.
  • 7. Racking Tube -6 feet Attaches to the racking cane and/or the bottle filler for easy siphoning from the fermenter to the bucket or from the bucket to the bottles.
  • 8. Bottle Filler Plastic tube with a spring valve. To use: attach to the racking tube, start the siphon, open the bottle filler valve by pressing it to the bottom of your bottles. Bottles fill from the bottom. Stop the flow of beer by raising the bottle filler.
  • 9. Funnel -8 inch Used to get water and beer mix into the fermenter.
  • 10. Fermometer Stick on temperature strip for carboy to measure temperature of your fermenting beer.
  • 11. Hydrometer Jar For holding wort/beer samples when taking hydrometer and thermometer readings.
  • 12. Hydrometer For determining alcohol levels and to test fermentation. To use: place a sample of your beer in the hydrometer jar. Float the hydrometer in the sample. Using the gravity scale on the hydrometer, read where the scale intersects the surface level of the liquid. Take a reading before and after fermentation. Gravity levels tell the story of your beer style and fermentation. Recording these levels and other specifics about your beer help in recreating or improving your brewing methods.
  • 13. Star San 4 oz Acid based no rinse sanitizing solution.
  • 14. Alkaline Wash 2 oz Powdered cleaning solution for cleaning equipment before sanitizing.
