What you’ll need to get brewing (total initial investment):
1. A basic equipment starter kit: includes an eight-gallon food-grade bucket, airlock, racking and siphoning hose, capper and caps, iodine sanitizer, and a 36-page instruction booklet. $60.
2. Ingredients starter kit: Think of this pre-hopped malt syrup as brewer’s training wheels. $21-$35.
3. Help: Steve Berg of Vegas Homebrew & Winemaking is here (or rather, at 5140 W. Charleston Blvd., 207-2337) to personally help with all your home brewing and winemaking needs. Priceless.
