Home Brewing Supplies - How to Begin Setting Up Your Home Brewery

Brewing your own beer from home is a hobby that grows fast all over the world, and the industry of home brewing supplies is no different.

There are several reasons why you would want to make your own beer: as a hobby, as a way of trying different flavors that you can't find with the big brands, or even as a way to save money by trying to reproduce some expensive craft beers.

The best way for aspiring home brewers to get started is by using a Home Brewing Kit, also known as Starter Kit. These kits come with all the gear you'll need to make your first batch of beer plus the ingredients, usually in the form of malt extract, yeast and fresh hops.

Basic home brew kits come with a plastic fermenter and a plastic bottling bucket with a spigot (both usually 6 gallons), thermometer, hydrometer, large stirring spoon, airlock, siphon, sanitizer solution, bottles, caps, bottle capper, ingredients (beer kit with malt extract, brewing sugar, brewing yeast and carbonation drops) and a step-by-step instruction DVD or book.The brew pot usually is sold separately.

There are different home brewing kits, ranging in price from under $100 to over $400. The difference here is both in the size of the buckets - which allows for more or less beer in each batch - and in the quality of the equipment. Some kits will include kegs, for those who don't want to bother with bottles, although bottling will help in beer maturing and is preferred by those who brew ales. If you are brewing lagers for the hot summer days, then kegging might be an option. Remember, though, that lager is considered more difficult to brew than ale, especially because it requires colder fermenting temperatures. So if you are an absolute beginner, you might want to go with ales.
