    Default I just tried homemade beer

    The simple methods. One batch is very good.. I would buy 6-7 euros of a pint of it in a bar, but you gotta understand, the price of good price is heavy in this place in the world.

    The whole batch cost me something like 14 euros to make. 25 liters. Took 8 hours total, though, from start to end. I don't think of this like a financial thing at all, though.. I'm just describing this with monetary units. It's just a hobby .. extension to my hobby of making good food and wine at my home.

    I would like to link the pages that I used to making that beer. There's that problem they're almost exclusively in finnish.

    Another batch, not that good.. a dissapointing one. Same brand, different style.

    It's Coopers brand. I altered the brewing instructions a bit according to some of the latest discoveries in the art and science of brewing. Then again, being a newbie in beermaking, perhaps I just made it great by accident, or something. I dont know.

    Anyways. If there's someone interested in homemade beer, perhaps we could check what (newbie-ish) instructions direct us to the greatest tastes.

    I've always wanted to make beer, but I'm also lazy and almost none of the people I see on a regular basis drink beer plus there's alright to much shit in this apartment that their's not really room for the equipment.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Yeah the brewing vessels (not sure what they've called, I have NOT followed advice in english language with this) are sizey.

    My wife is complaining that I haven't washed and get rid of 3 of such vessels already. They're in my bathroom, uhh 5 gallons? Is that right? About 30 liters = 5 gallons?

    The vessels do stack up. Then they take just a little bit more space than 3 of them combined. The lids go inside, and all the equipments go inside. They can easily be placed on the top of the fridge, a shelf, or something like that.

    I think there's just two things. Learning the procedures from something that you know to make good beer, and then the bottling. I'm getting tired of the bottling though: I can't continue with this hobby if it's going to be this much of trouble.

    I'll have to buy a beer keg, barrel or something like that to get rid of the bottling phase.

    the top of the fridge is where the liquor goes because we have no other place for it, so the top of the fridge is full of booze.

    I would love to get into home brewing and had a great but ancient book on this at a time, I'd be worried that I'd wind up with terrible orangey flavoured hooch like what gets knocked out in radiator stills in prisons or something.

    Welcome to the exciting world of zymurgy.

    I try to make a batch of cider every fall, I think I'm slowly getting better at it.

    Very nice ! I once made beer in a project group in school but that is many many years ago. Since then I always wanted to make some again, your post is inspiring . You can buy here whole bundles to make beer right away, they provide you with a fermentation bottle and a hop and malt mixture. Did you make beer based on hop aswell or corn-based ? I'll never get used to american beer

    I'm wondering if I can grow it in my vag... like a yeast infection.

    Then bed room activities would be more fun.
    a cat is fine too
