    Also, remember; if you can buy a brewing thing that isn't sold as a brewing thing it will be about half the price



    People always mention confectionary buckets, whether they held flour, sugar, syrup, or icing.


    this is how i started. you can get them free from the old ladies at the bakery department of most grocery stores, anywhere from 2-5 gallons.

    as for other stuff i've had good dealings with these sites:

    farmhousebrewingsupply.com
    rebelbrewer.com
    midwestsupplies.com

    On that note, HERE is a thread about such things. It's a little older, but could use some updating.
