Brew your own beer like you've never imagined it before! You might already be familiar with this type of activity. If not, then you should be. Brewing your own beer makes you feel proud of yourself. Once you've tried this and you've perfected the proper way of home brewing, you might actually say that your beer tastes better than those high priced, top selling branded beers in the market.
Fermentation is used in the process of home brewing beer. You can make your own beer as a hobby that you enjoy, for your on personal consumption, or even for tasting and comparing with your friends. If you are new to this sort of activity, it is recommended that you search for exact home brew instructions online from people who have already done this sort of home brewing beer themselves. The process you use to brew your own beer is an exacting thing; one misstep and you can greatly affect the flavor of your resulting beer. Because of this, you need to take precautions in each step of the process and keep all tools that you use sanitary.
As we stated before, you can make use of homebrew recipes that you can find online. The ingredients associated with the general recipes aren't complicated to find or really pricey. You can find kits designed for use specifically in home brewing, and a lot of times these can be found locally. Even better, some of these kits include some of the tools you will need in processing the raw materials.
The following is a listing of the most well-known ingredients needed in home brewing beer:
- Liquid malt extract (or powder form)
- Hop pellets
- Some specialty grains (usually included in the kits)
- For the fermentation process, yeasts
These are the basic ingredients needed to start brewing your dream beer. Before you carry on with your home brew instructions, let me just remind you to sanitize every equipment that you would use to perform this activity.
After you get the ingredients that you will need to brew your own beer at home, you will need to ensure that you have (or go get) the equipment necessary in the process. First of all, you will need to have a large brewing pot. This container is used for heating the malt, boiling water and mixing these things with the hops pellets. Next, you will require a container for the non-fermented beer (or wort, pronounced wert). This needs to be large, as you will find most recipes yield 2-3 gallons of finished product. Inside this container, you mix in the yeast. From here, the mixture is placed in bottles to ferment and allowed to sit.
Fermentation takes 7 to 10 days, approximately. After that, when you transfer the fermented beer on the bottles, it will stay there for another 7 to 10 days before you could actually taste the sweet success of your home brewing activity.
