Home Brewing 101

Teach a Man to Fish... 1 of 1

A good friend and experienced brewmaster once told me, ''Brewing is not difficult. You just can’t f*** it up.''

He was right; it’s not that difficult, and when done right your reward is delicious beer to share with all your friends.

When done wrong, however, you can get some pretty foul tasting stuff. Just chalk those bad brews up to learning and try it again. Make friends with the staff at your local homebrew supply store and let them help you. Whatever you do, don’t give up.

Here are some easy to follow directions to get started with your own home brew using basic home brew supplies.
