So I've ran a few kegs of beer through my kegerator, and I've educated myself a bit about the homebrew process. I like to cook and love beer, so for me brewing is the next logical step. Is it really economical? Initially I was looking at this as a potential cost savings but so far I'm not seeing it. Anyway, here's the list that I've come up with so far. I'm not going to fool with bottling obviously... Stainless steel boiling pot Glass carboy Carboy airlock Carboy cleaner Wort chiller (probably just a ice bath for starters) Thermometer Hydrometer Stirring paddle Corny kegs Ingredients What am I missing? I'm not afraid of some startup costs, I plan on doing things right. And economically. If I can save money brewing in bigger batches then by all means that's what I'll do.
