Home Brewing


Beer – just the word itself gives rise to visions of frothing mugs, of chilled drinks and bars and pubs, of a gathering of friends and drinks and barbeques. There are many types of beers available all over the world, and often each country has it’s own favourite brew, and you will find innumerable people who will disagree with the popular choices.
If you love beer and love beer of a certain type, then explore the realm of brewing your own at Home Brew Online. It sounds difficult, but it really is fairly simple and you can enjoy exactly the type of beer you want.
Let us first remove certain common misperceptions about home-brewed beer. It is not stronger than market beer – it is as strong as you would like to make it – that is all. Bottles do not explode when you make beer, unless you bottle it before it finishes fermenting. Hangovers from home-brewed beer are no greater than market beer hangovers – the hangover is dependent on your total consumption – and nothing else.
The ingredients required are very few – just four to be exact – water, yeast, barley and hops. Barley for the sugar that is extracted from it, the bitterness comes from the hops and the yeast is the fermentation agent and of course the water which needs to be added.
There are many types of equipment available in the market which makes home-brewing of beer a cinch. For the novices we have starter kits – and you can add more professional appendages as you become more proficient. At the simplest level all you need is a fermenter and the home-brew concentrate, dextrose or glucose if you prefer that and you are ready to brew your own concoction.
Relax, and enjoy doing this and then share it with your friends. Can you think of a better way to enjoy your favourite liquid refreshment?
