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!
