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 have to say that as much as I like Oberon I like brewing my own version even more.

Being a new brewer is exciting. You open the box, and there’s this fermenter, and cans of extract, and instructions, and you can make beer! I got my start with a Mr. Beer kit my wife got me for Christmas. I was as excited as a ten-year-old getting a puppy, and I couldn’t wait to brew my first batch. I would have creative control of the beer I drank. There were so many possibilities now; so much potential for creating custom beers right in my own kitchen. My first couple of batches were done with some slight modifications. Nothing major; […]
