It seem like every time I look there is another home brew book available explaining how to brew beer. Many of these books are simply a re-hash of the many brewing styles and methods that home brewers can use to create our favorite alcoholic beverages. Granted it’s hard to really find new content to write a home brew book about and keep it fresh when the basic process for brewing has remained the same for centuries.

I know what your thinking, this is April Fools day and the BeerBorg is trying to pull one over on all us brewers, but I assure you that this is a real thing! One of the dreams of almost every home brewer is to go pro and make money from brewing beer. For most of us this is a pipe dream and never something that we would pursue. For others, they like where they are in their brewing and are quite happy to make beer that they, thier friends and relatives can enjoy and maybe even enter some competitions to get some hardware […]

So, you want to start brewing your own beer?

For years I had always thought about how cool it would be to brew my own beer. To be able to reach into the refrigerator and grab a bottle of beer hand it to a friend or relative and say, “try this, I made it” and watch their faces as they take the first sips of the wonderful elixir that I created. But I always seemed to have something else to do, I was always “too busy” working or raising my family to get into brewing! The fact was I was afraid to start something that was either too complicated and/or too expensive and have it turn out like crap. Ahh, if I only knew then what I know now I could have been brewing beer and enjoying the hobby of brewing a lot sooner.

Ever been in a hurry to fill a 2.5 gallon keg? But not sure what to do? Well, it’s cold in this part of the world. And it won’t be long before your wanting to grab an nice amber to sip on. A while back, while at the local home brew store (LHBS), I was trying to figure out what to brew. I was doing a lot of Irish Stouts then, and if it was dark, I was into it. While looking at the options, I noticed a Munton’s 3.3 pound can of Hopped Amber Malt Extract. THAT got the […]

For a lot of new homebrewers making their own beer is really the first time that they have ever really thought about the actual taste of beer. When I started I had very little idea where the different flavors were coming from. What is a hoppy taste? What is a malty taste? Why do some beer have the  flavor and smell of pine needles while others were fruity, flowery or citrusy tasting? It really was an eye opener to me when I discovered that different hops, malts and yeasts could impact the flavor of a beer so much and that […]
