What equipment do I need to start making wine at home?
Very little equipment is required for making wine:
- Primary Fermenter (plastic pail)
- Secondary Fermenter (glass/plastic carboy)
- Airlock for carboy
- Bottle brush
- Carboy brush
- Hydrometer with jar
Cleaner & Sanitizer
When you are ready to bottle then you'll need:
- Bottles (approx 30)
- Floor Corker (I rent one from the local shop)
I recommend purchasing a starter kit from your local homebrew/wine shop. They're normally really great and good prices.
Another great source where my parents buy most of their stuff is at midwestsupplies.com.
