Coming Soon!

A free crash course on how to make beer. This course is designed for new brewers who want to get started through formalized training. So what does it take to start brewing awesome beer at home?

The basic process is simple


Crushed, malted, barley is steeped in hot water to release malt sugars and flavor compounds.


This resulting sugar water, called wort, is boiled with hops to add bitterness and flavor.


The wort is cooled and the yeast is added to begin fermentation.


The yeast consume the sugars and expel alcohol and CO2 gas.


The fermented beer can be bottled with sugar or kegged and put under pressure with CO2 to carbonate.


Enjoy your beer!

Doesn’t sound too difficult, right?

Well, each of those steps has rather a lot more detail and we can walk you through them. 


Like anything technical, brewing has it’s own language. We will try to present the terms as simply as possible. Brewing terms will be highlighted, if you don’t know what a term means, simply click on it and a dialog box with the definition will pop out.


Homebrewing requires some specific equipment. We will walk you through each piece of equipment, detailing its purpose and what to consider when choosing your brewing arsenal.


Learn to read and use brewing recipes as well as create your own recipes. You will also learn about ingredients. We will guide you in choosing your first recipe and purchasing your ingredients.
