well, for a very basic set of instructions, you just boil water, malt extract, and hops then cool the mixture in a container and add yeast, then let it ferment for a couple of weeks, then bottle it. for more detailed instructions you’ll want to find a copy of the Complete Joy of Home Brewing. you’ll also want to find a home brew supply shop.

home brewing can be a lot of fun, and can be either really simple of very complex depending how far you want to get into it.

It isnt that simple. you are going to need supplies and a decent amount of knowledge the book suggested above is decent. how to brew by john palmer is a good manual for a beginner. find a good home brew store in your area.


For a beginner I would recommend Mr. Beer homebrew kit, which just contains malt extract and a small plastic keg.

I homebrew using all-grain. Basically, for a 5 gallon batch, I just boil about 10 pounds of grain in water and place the final wort in a glass carboy.

I would visit beertools.com to learn more about the process and for recipes. Sites like northernbrewer.com or midwestbrewer.com can supply you with a wide range of kits and ingredients.
