Most people think that you need a lot of equipment and spend a lot of money to get into making your own beer or wine. Not true. I use a lot of stuff from my kitchen. There are a few inexpensive items you will need to purchase.
Items you need
6 gallon food grade bucket with a lid that has a hole to fit airlocks
stainless steel pot (12qt to 20qt)
thermometer - floating one is great. I use an electronic because it is easier.
rolling pin - to crush grains
This basic equipment assumes that you are using juices to make wine and either liquid or dry malt to make beer. In other words, real simple techniques. As you advance in either one, you will want to pick up more equipment, but this should get you started.
