There’s no better way to understand your beer than to make it yourself from the bottom up, plus it could be some of the best beer you've ever had. Here are nine reasons to get you on your way.
1. It’s easier than you thinkBrewing beer may seem like alchemy, but it’s certainly no more difficult than making a proper boeuf bourguignon. At the start, it’s just a matter of following a recipe.2. You’ll appreciate all beer more Learning the beer making process from the ground up gives you a true understanding, and appreciation, as to what goes in a beer. It’ll make you a better drinker! 3. Your best ever beerYour homebrew could be the best beer you’ve ever had. The love and care that you’ll be putting into could eclipse many brewery’s efforts – and it’s all yours. 4. Get dirtyIf, like many people, you’re tied to a computer most days, this is the chance to turn your hand to something manual, get dirty and involved. It’s good for the soul. 5. Easy as you likeFrom malt extract kits to all-grain, you can make it as easy or as hard as you like. Probably not best to kick off with a Double IPA at first, but a porter. 6. Go wildYou have the power. Want to put more hops in? Then go ahead. Fancy throwing in some black peppercorns, all yours. Homebrewing is a hugely liberating and creative experience. 7. Everyone wants to helpThe homebrewing community is a friendly one, there’s always someone willing to help on a forum somewhere if you’re doing it alone. 8. Make friends Some of the most fun nights in a pub are with the local homebrewing club. Not only do you get to sample other people’s efforts, you’ll learn a lot as well. 9. Go proIf you’ve always harboured an ambition to be a professional brewer, it’s in the home where you’ll want to start. Many of the world’s best brewers started at home.
If you're ready to take the plunge into homebrewing, many local homebrew shops sell beer making kits with everything you need to make your first batch of beer: malt, hops and yeast, racking cane, thermometer, tubing clamp, glass fermenting jug, cleansing solution, airlock, clear vinyl tubing and a screw-cap stopper. Happy brewing!
We have some important and exciting news from our Managing Director, Matt Lane:
Over the last few months, we’ve spent a lot of time speaking to members of our PerfectDraft community about loyalty & rewards.
Something we’re really passionate about is rewarding our most loyal customers and you’ve given us some great feedback and ideas on how we can do this.
We’re now excited to announce the launch of our ‘Spring Rewards’ program.
During pregnancy, it is recommended to a pregnant woman not to eat any raw or semi-cooked food such as meat, fish, cold meats and certain types of cheese. And above all, smoking and drinking alcohol should be stopped.
In recent years, alcohol-free beer has become a real trend in the beer market here in the UK. More and more big beer brands and small craft breweries are starting to brew it to the delight of non-alcoholic drinkers. However, there are many questions about this kind of beer.
We’re back for the second edition of ‘Must Try Kegs’. Last week we spotlighted three fantastic kegs from our MultiTRY range and this week is no different. From a personal favourite lager of mine, to a couple of flavour sensations, take a read through why we think you have to try these three.
