Here is a list of the current tools I use for brewing. These will change as I move forward in skill and difficulty of the brewing, but for this first batch, it’s what you can use to start with and still function. List is in no particular order.
Hydrometer. The Hydrometer is used to measure the gravity of the wort and beer to get OG and FG.
Thermometer. The thermometer is used to keep the temperature in the correct range for all parts of your brew.
Large all-metal spoon. This needs to be a fairly large spoon, as this is what you stir your brew with. Should be all metal, as inserts can harbor bacteria. Definitely NO WOOD HANDLES!
Auto-siphon. This is used to transfer the liquid from one vessel to another without aerating it too much. Pouring=bad. Siphoning=good.
Wallpaper tub. This is a very cheap item, but makes sanitizing everything from tools to bottles a breeze.
8 ft. length 3/8″plastic tubing. This length is used with the auto siphon to transfer liquids (wort, beer) to different vessels. The length makes it a lot easier to handle.
3 ft. length 3/8″ plastic tubing. Depending on how you bottle, this length is used with the bottling tool. Can also be used for siphoning if the larger length gets in the way.
1 ft. length 3/8″plastic tubing. This is used for bottling. Makes bottling a breeze.
Large Funnel (preferably metal, or food-grade plastic). This is used when adding water to your carboy, or when you pour other liquids.
Bottle Filler. The bottle filler is a nice, simple piece of hard plastic tubing with a pressure valve on its end, so when you push a bottle on it, it fills, and stops when you remove the bottle. Should cost around $6.
Bottle Capper. This is the tool that is used to cap your bottles. Makes capping fairly easily. You can use a hand capper, or invest a little more and use a table-top one. Most kits come with the hand capper.
Brew Pot. This is what you brew in. If you plan on ever doing all-grain brews, you need about a 40 quart (10 gallon) brew pot. This is a very large pot, so make sure you have room on your stove, or invest in the next item in the list…
Carboy. The carboy is the fermentor. I recommend 5-6.5 gallon size, and always glass.
Bottling Bucket. The bottling bucket is used for bottling your beer. This is generally a 6.5 gallon plastic bucket with a spigot on the front. The spigot is necessary for bottling purposes.
Airlock and Stopper. The airlock is used for keeping air out of your fermentor, while letting CO2 escape. This is vital to good fermentation. The stopper is what the airlock is inserted into.
Propane Burner. A propane burner is NOT required, but makes the job a lot easier, especially with larger brew pots. Your first batches can 100% be done on a stove. Should be around 55,000 BTUs. These commonly come as turkey fryers.
Cleanser. A heavy duty cleanser is vital to your success.
Star-San Sanitizer. Sanitization is the single most important step in brewing. If this isn’t done right, your brew will fail. Use star-san as directed on the bottle.
