If you want really specific, step-by-step help in home beer brewing, then I think we’ve come across the perfect site for you.
It’s called Homebrewing Made Easy. Check it out if you have a minute, because I think it will really help to fast track you to making some amazing beer – and, more importantly, you will avoid a ton of the common mistakes that newer guys make.
You’ll get a lot of information, but here’s a short list of what you’re about to learn:
- Avoid 4 of the biggest mistakes that ruin most people’s home brew
- How to copy the taste of your favorite commercial beer (and how to consistently do it, which is most important)
- Which method you should focus your time on (there are different methods, each person has their favorite)
- How to clean your equipment easily and effectively (tip: this is key in making consistent tasting beer, something tons of people aren’t able to accomplish)
- What equipment you should be using (not expensive,) and what materials / ingredients
- Tons of recipes that work
- And more I can’t list here
I don’t want to take too much information off of his page, so just check it out for yourself I guess.
In the end, this guide is really just going to show you how to make good tasting beer. It might not be for you, but I’ve heard that a lot of people have wanted step by step help to getting it done, and this seems to fit the bill.
After you’ve made your first few batches with Pat’s help, you can start to experiment and change things to see what you prefer. In my opinion this should just be a good starting point.
He basically started out just like me and you, trying to make good beer. I think he mentions that he had a really bad experience in the beginning, but got help from his uncle.
Long story short – they ended up clonining / making beer that tasted just like the common one they always drank, and their friends couldn’t tell the difference. That seems pretty intriguing to me, so he might be able to help you out a bunch.
Anyway, check out Pat’s Homebrewing Made Easy, and then come back and comment on whether it’s working out for you. I’d love to hear from ya.
Thanks and good luck making that beer!
