Infographic: How Far Will Home Brewing Take You?Friday, December 21st, 2012
Brewing is a truly awesome hobby that hooks people for many reasons. First off, a side effect of pursuing this hobby is having lots of delicious beer on hand! But that is just the beginning. The wide range of beer styles, yeasts, and brewing processes means there is always something new to explore. Brewing can be a way to challenge oneself. Highest quality beers take balance, experience, and attention to detail. There is also a powerful do it yourself (DIY) geek factor to brewing. Equipment and gadgets start with simple plastic buckets and grow to fully automated brew rigs with lights, switches, pumps and burners. Brewing your own beer is practical, in that the price per bottle can be much lower than store bought beer and avoids tax! Competition in brew club events, state fairs, brew fests keep brewers coming back for more. Brewing can even turn into a career, either as a pro brewer or in academics. And let’s not forget hops – the spice of beer that provides bitterness, aroma, and flavor like none other. Home brewers can knock their palates silly with extremely hoppy brews!
