    Why Should You Homebrew?

    Hello there, dear reader, and welcome back to our blog! Here at Brau Supply, we have a lot of experience brewing beer. As developers of the world’s best home brew systems, we have spent countless hours toiling over our brews and, through this experience, we have learned quite a bit about the benefit that homebrewing can bring to individuals. In part one of a two part blog series, we are going to cover some of these benefits and why we feel that homebrewing is an activity that everyone should try their hand at. Continue reading below to learn more.

    Learn New Skills While Making Something Tasty

    People have been brewing beer for thousands of years. With this amount of history behind one of the world’s most popular beverages, it is no wonder that people like to be able to make their own beer in the comfort of their homes. In our experience, brewing beer has its own intrinsic value. Something about the brewing process stokes that area of the brain that is satisfied by the creative process. When you brew a beer, it’s not just any beer. It is a beer that you made, a beer that you designed, and a beer that you toiled over. Additionally, home brewing is a great hobby to pick up because it takes a relatively small amount of work to brew a batch of beer. If you brew using extracts, the entire process only takes a few hours over the course of several weeks, and even an all grain brewing process only adds a few hours of additional work. This means that homebrewing is perfect for people who need to be able to adjust the amount of time their hobbies take to match their schedule.

    Save Money and Make New Friends

    Another great benefit that comes along with brewing your own beer is the fact that it allows you to make a whole batch of beer for very little money compared to buying it in the store. Even with the initial investment in equipment, you only have to brew a few batches of beer before the cost savings start to outweigh the amount of money that you have put into your system. In addition to the cost saving benefits of brewing, it is also a great way to meet new people! There are countless websites, blogs, forums, and clubs that are dedicated to sharing homebrew recipes, new brewing techniques, and reviews on the latest brewing equipment. Homebrewers are passionate about their craft,  and it is enjoyable to be able to share this passion with a like-minded group of people.

    Join us again next time as we continue to cover some of the benefits that homebrewing offers to those who are willing to take the time to learn a little about the craft. Additionally, if you would like to learn more about the home brew systems that we offer at Brau Supply, please visit our website today. We have made it our mission to provide the best home brew systems available and we are certain that once you try out one of our systems, you will never want to brew beer on anything else.
