    Default Starting Alcohol

    The alcohol installment of Starting Strength Radio piqued my interest to say the least. I gave hard cider production a try and had some surprisingly tasty results. I have researched more into the subject, and it has come to my attention that if I want to take these results to the next level, I will have to make a small investment in some fermentation equipment (carboys, air-locks, and the like). Have you had any experience with a quality equipment manufacturer or know of one? American made products are obviously preferable if available. Thank you for your time and expertise.

    I'm about 30 years removed from the situation. We'll ask.

    Brewing supplies with good customer service:
    Austin Homebrew Austin Homebrew Supply - Brewing Supplies - Wine Making Supplies
    More Beer MoreBeer - Beer Making Kits and Home Brewing Supplies
    Northern Brewer Northern Brewer Home Brewing Supplies

    I home brew beer but I think the equipment is similar/same for cider. All three companies probably have cider starter kits with the basic gear needed to start a batch.

    It's difficult to avoid Made in China for most small brewing accessories.

    Thank you, sir. I really appreciate it. It's getting more and more expensive to drown a person's sorrows in quality alcohol with all of the Bad Things happening right now, so hopefully this will help take the edge off while not taking too much off of the bank account.

    You don't need any "gear" to make cider. See my podcast about alcohol.

    That's true but he asked. And it's easier and potentially less messy with an airlock.

    Dalton: don't be intimidated by the gear options for making alcohol. Just like weight training, you can spend a little or a lot on equipment. Or none if you just want cider.

    I tried making Elderflower Champagne last year. Came out like vinegar. Make sloe gin quite regularly, but that's not brewing, just flavouring booze that you buy.

    Add a splash of bourbon.... it doesn't even have to be real good bourbon.

    Or if you're in the UK, have a pint half and half lager and cider, commonly known as snakebite.
