Post The Rewards of Homebrew Explained
The Rewards of Homebrew Explained
by: Dirik Hameed

Home brew has many great advantages for both you and your enjoyment. We aren't just talking about becoming inebriated! Many people see home brew as something either students do or your dad does. But its not; it is for everyone over 18 of course. You are not just limited to brewing ale. You can do lager, wine, cider and spirit and liquors. Anything that takes your fancy, if you are feeling creative.

For the cost of a Saturday night in the pub, you can buy all the kit needed to start. These kits normally include a beer kit, barrel, fermenting bin, paddle, syphon, steriliser, hydrometer, thermometer, trail jar and a co2 charge with converter. A good shop can you sell you a home brew kit with everything you need.

With home brewing, you can always find something to match your taste buds. There are special Christmas ales as well, seasonal to suit the time of year. Cider can be done with either fresh apples although can be costly with the need to buy a press or you can get a concentrates which you can pour in and use. The overall quality when home brewing can vary. The pre-made concentrate option gives you a treacle like substance you normally add hot water and sugar too- as simple as that. The more experienced home brewer, however might look at adding their own fresh ingredients. With cider for example, using your own apples. The obvious advantage of this is a better quality of brew, in both taste and texture. Other advantages include more flexibility over exactly what ingredients you add, which you cant achieve with pre-made brew substances. Obviously when you make a home brew, you will brew a job lot, so to speak. Depending on the barrel you use, you can expect to produce anywhere from 15-30 pints. Picture not having to go to the pub, and having a shedload of drink at home at all times. If you are having a party, setting two or three home brews up in advance will satisfy a lot of people for a small amount.

Making home brew is also a very good way of saving money. Certainly cheaper than the pub! I worked out in the past an average pint costs around 50 pence ($1) depending on what you drink. Even the more expensive home brews don't come near the cost of a pint in a pub. Particularly these days as a night out can cost well over 50 pounds ($100) if you aren't careful. After all, what can be better than sitting in the comfort of your home and getting tipsy for a fiver!
