Have you ever been out to eat at a brew pub and thought how fun it might be to give homebrewing a try? Maybe you’ve gone on a brewery tour and seen all of the enormous crazy equipment, or possibly you’ve actually tried someone’s homebrewed beer and wondered how difficult it might be to brew your own beer at home?
Well the good news is that it’s a lot less complicated than you think to make your own beer and become a homebrewer. You don’t need those gigantic and costly tanks, or a whole empty factory, or even an empty garage to work in. And believe it or not, you aren’t in any danger of blowing up your home by home brewing!
Homebrewing these days is a full-blown mainstream hobby. The homebrewing industry is massive, with thousands of organizations producing goods and equipment just for home brewers to use. You no longer need to brew beer with inferior ingredients that were meant for making soda or baking cakes. Home brewers now have access to huge warehouses of supplies at neighborhood home brew supply stores and of course at the countless online super stores.
More great news – you do not have to be a chemist, scientist, nerd or hippie to make great beer at home! You can brew fantastic beer at home right now if you simply know how to boil water and can follow the directions on a box of brownies! All you need to get going are a few pieces of important equipment and some very basic ingredients that can very easily be found online or in a nearby home brew shop.
If you choose a very fundamental home brewery setup, you can get started for under one hundred dollars. Later on you can buy better equipment and more home brewing toys, but great tasting beer can be made with very standard home brewing equipment, beer that’s far better than crappy Miller Lite!
You get to be innovative when homebrewing. You can put almost anything into your home brew, making it as bitter, sweet, strong, light, dark, and aromatic as you’d like. But to make sure you brew something that’s nice and tasty, I definitely recommend you start with a very basic homebrew beer recipe that’s already been done for you. But once you get the home brewing bug and have made a few batches you’ll want to put your stamp on your own innovative recipes!
People have loved brewing and drinking beer for thousands of years. Making your own beer is a wonderful way to reconnect with our past and create things with our own hands the way our forefathers did… the only difference is that you get to use better fresh ingredients from all over the world! Every city has local homebrewing clubs where you can meet people just like you who love beer, and of course, many tastings are poured at the meetings!
So jump into this fun and sudsy hobby and start making your own beer today. I’m sure your friends will love you for it!
