While there are many different types of ingredients and equipment on the market, getting started is actually really easy. What’s more, you will discover that the beer you brew can be of great quality.
Here is what you need and how to brew your own beer at home. The process will vary depending on the type of beer you are using as well as the kit itself but in general it’s easy. It takes 1 to 3 weeks to make a batch of homebrew beer and during that time you will spend a few hours on the brew.
Once you have your home brewing starter kit, you are ready to make your first batch of beer at home. You will be using a can or packet of liquid malt which makes brewing a breeze and perfect for first time brewers.Get a Starter Kit
These kits use a complex malt extract that can take longer to ferment out. Leave at least 8 days to ferment or longer if below 20C. Ensure airlock is not bubbling and that S.G reading is stable for 48 hours.
IMPORTANT WARNING: The S.G must be stable for 48 hours before bottling.
Never bottle until fermentation is complete.
Use only the beer bottles supplied, proper glass flip top, or crown cap beer bottles. Reject any glass bottles that have the slightest chips, cracks or imperfections.
Serving and Storage
Sit back, relax, and enjoy your very own brewed beer!
Homebrew improves greatly with bottle ageing and will not go off in the bottle at all. Don’t judge the quality of a beer until it’s been in the bottle for at least 6-8 weeks. A six month old beer will be very much better than a one month old beer. So, try to age your beers, you will enjoy them much more.
Don't forget to label and date each batch. Keep samples to try at 3, 6 and 12 months old. Keep records of each brew, including what went into the batch and keep a few tasting notes for reference.
Once you have your first brew complete, simply pick up a refill bundle and get your next brew underway.
