You should know and check that the fermenter is air locked, otherwise, it will destroy the taste of the beer. The fermenter should be big in size and have an air tight lid and be able to hold up to 6 to 8 gallons of beer in it.

Another important instrument required is plastic hose which is used for transferring beer from vessel to another vessel and also to the bottles. All of these above mentioned equipment are the basic and necessary equipments needed for home brewing, and without these instruments, you cannot possibly make beer.

This tube should be a long and should be made of hard plastic. Then, you will require a bottling brush which is used to clean the bottles from the inside before filling them up.
