Getting started making your own wine, ale, cider, and beer at home is a (fairly) easy thing to do. As with any new hobby, the most daunting part is picking up all the right equipment. Thankfully we have everything you need to whip up wonderful batches of beverages right here.
How to Home Brew
Making your own alcoholic drinks at home isn’t necessarily a difficult task but there are some specific things you need to keep in mind to ensure success.
First, make sure your equipment is really well sanitised. Although the fermentation process of brewing beer and wine involves the use of bacterias and yeasts, you want to make sure the bad bacteria stays out. To ensure the best fermentation possible, sanitise your equipment really well before you begin to get the best results.
Second, choose the larger brew kettle. If it is merely down to a difference in size, pick the larger - boil-overs will happen.
Thirdly, invest in good quality bottles. There’s nothing worse than having your product explode all over the place so make sure you select bottles that are specifically made for fermenting in.
Finally, accept that the first brew might not be very good. Fermentation is a fine art, and you only improve with practice. If your first batch of wine or beer didn’t taste very good, try again - it will probably be much better the second time around!
