Home brewing is a fun and social hobby growing in popularity, as people brew with friends and share the finished product with their families and co-workers, writes Corey Ross for County Lines Magazine.
This is one of the reasons why Ross, the owner of Malvern-based Fancy Camper Home Brew Supply, often says that home brewing is the right choice for people who enjoy beer.
Ross is quick to emphasize the accessibility and cost savings. After the initial investment in brewing equipment, the cost of making two cases of home-brewed beer usually runs between $40 and $65 per batch.
The process is also relatively simple, with good result usually achieved even by first-time brewers. The first step is to get the appropriate equipment. A basic, reusable equipment kit and an ingredients kit cost less than $200.
Brewing takes up to five weeks depending on the type of beer. However, with a starter kit, the actual brewing process takes around two and a half to three hours. After that, fermentation lasts between seven and 10 days before the beer can be bottled. Another two weeks and it is ready to be enjoyed.
