They started in ancient Egypt accidentally, but farmers quickly learned that mixing barley with water and yeast yielded great results. Soon everyone around the world was brewing beer at home and enjoying the fermented results of this chemistry while adding their own little distinctive touches. Enjoying it to the point where society has often decided to put the brakes on all that alcohol consumption, and prohibit the nasty stuff. We all know how successful those campaigns were. We also know how very successful beer corporations have become.
If you’re a channel surfer and follow the various networks’ “how do they do that” series, you’ll run across documentaries on how various beer manufacturers ply the craft of brewing beer. Huge vats, copper equipment and all sorts of paraphernalia make you think you’re dealing with a deep dark mysterious process known only to white coated gentlemen carefully regarding gauges. Those huge breweries also seem to promote rising costs just like all other of life’s little pleasures.
Today’s economy may have turned your thoughts towards saving some money by giving home brewing a try. That is until those documentary images creep back into your psych. Where shall you stash the vats and gauges and tubing and “stuff.”
Good news. It may not be as hard as it appears. You may not need to build an extra building in the back yard to accommodate the equipment or hire your own set of Clydesdales to pull your beer wagon down the block.
Today’s modern home brewing kits do not require any sort of Hawkeye Pierce convoluted apparatus – in fact, you’d probably be amazed at how little you actually need to begin brewing beer at home — all available in easy to use complete packages. Even more exciting are the various kinds of brews available for taste experimentation. Before you know it, you’ll be an expert on lagers, ales, pilseners, and stouts, perhaps even experimenting with your own carefully chosen special ingredients.
How great will you feel as you pass out your own private stock at your next backyard picnic? You can sit smiling smugly as your friends demand to know where you got that great tasting beer. In as little as 20 days you can have your home brew ready to go, but two to three months will age it to perfection.
Even better you can jump into this modern brewing hobby for far less than you would ever imagine. Sipping your homemade brew just might make the current economy a little easier to bear.
