Ever tried brewing your own beer in your kitchen? Quite a long time, I wanted to try it out and recently started looking at how to do it, and what materials I need to make some decent home brew.
I noticed something odd when I was looking at some of the home brewing kits for beginners. A lot of the equipment you need to make your own beer is also only available in your kitchen. But for those things you may not have, you can always find them online in one of the various home brewing kits. Home Brew West
Those 5 Gallon Pots you need:
Brewing beer takes a bit of your time but it’s not really that hard the whole process. But, if you’re using a tiny 2-gallon pot, it’s kind of a waste of your time so if you’ve got the means to get a 5-gallon brew pot just get that. In the end, the smaller pots would only waste your time. You ‘re going to end up doing the same amount of work anyway, so you can get the amount twice and be satisfied as well!
Buckets to beer:
As with the brew pots, the same principle applies to the containers. You need at least 2 5-gallon buckets to perform the necessary brew transfers during the process. These can also be found online. There are tons of supply brawing outfits that will ship this kind of thing to your door for quite cheap.
A Strainer: The Strainer
If you brew your own beer at home, a kind of sludge is made, called the wort. If you don’t want chunks in your beer, you’ll certainly want to strain this while your beer is being made. Many people that I’ve heard use panty hose or something that’s called cheese fabric. That sort of thing seems to me gross, so I guess I’m just going to try out a real strainer from a supply house that’s brewing.
Caps & Bottles:
And don’t forget you will want to bottle it up until your beer is ready so you can treat and drink it properly. This is a good idea to do, because if you place it in an iced tea cup or something similar, it is not like it will taste good.
