Making beer, cider or ginger beer at home is easy to do and is a great hobby! In addition to saving money over the commercial offerings you can tailor your home brew to your own styles and tastes.
Home brewing beer, cider or ginger beer is easy however, there are a few things that you need to pay attention to for success:
- Cleaning and Sterilising – it is absolutely critical that all equipment and bottles are thoroughly cleaned and sterilised every time
- Take Your Time – do not rush the process! Fermentation takes time, both primary fermentation and secondary fermentation in the bottle. Do not rush these processes – especially the primary fermentation. If you bottle too early you will experience exploding bottles which is very dangerous and messy.
- Quality Ingredients – Only use quality ingredients like those stocked at Aussie Brewmakers. Stale malts, grains or tainted fermentable sugars, old yeasts etc. will not give you the best outcome.
