Homebrewing

A beer trader recently sent me a bomber bottle of his home brewed Black IPA (see photos). After careful consideration I decided to risk it provided that this brew was not going to be detrimental to my health in any form, I decided to give ‘er a go. I actually shared this with a buddy and we both found this to be a pleasant brew through this was more of a Russian Imperial Stout.

Homebrewing is growing increasingly popular these days. I would like to try it out once my residential space finally allows for such experiment hopefully in the near future. People homebrew for a variety of reasons. Homebrewing can be cheaper than buying commercially equivalent beverages; it allows people to adjust recipes according to their own tastes creating beverages that are unavailable on the open market or low-ethanol beverages that may contain fewer calories. Many people enjoy entering homebrew competitions, sometimes referred to as “craft brewing”,homebrewing has developed various homebrewing clubs and competitions. The Beer Judge Certification Program or BJCP is an American organization which sanctions beer, mead, and cider homebrew competitions, certifies judges, and offers categories for judging; these judging categories are called “Beer Style Guidelines” and are written by the BJCP Style Committee. In fact, a buddy just sent me a BJCP app for iPhone. Insane how the craft beer industry is just exploding. Cheers!

    Like you say, home brewing is certainly a lot cheaper than buying the commercial equivalent drink. I hope you get chance to give it a try soon. Using a home brew starter kit is always a good way to get started brewing at home.

    Good luck!
