You’re wondering whether you should start brewing your own beer? The answer is: definitely! It has never been easier to make your own beer – everything you need is just a mouse click away and there’s a community of people, who’d love to help you out! Still not convinced? Here are 5 reasons why you should brew your own beer:
Brewing saves money
All the gear you’ll need will probably cost you about $100. You can get a basic starter kit online (like this one). Or go for the Mr.Beer 24L Beer kit. For the ingredients you’ll have to pay around $30. Considering the cost of a 12-pack of Bud Lights, you’ll be able to return the investment in about 4 or 5 batches.
Brewing is fun
You get to invent your crazy recipes! A strawberry lamb-chop flavored beer? Why not?!
Also, sitting by a fire, watching water boil up has a certain charm. If you’re feeling social you could invite some people to keep you company. Imagine drinking a home-made beer by the fire with your buddy. Doesn’t it sound nice?!
You know what you’re drinking
Like any other item that you make at home, you get to know what you put in your beer. You can make sure every single ingredient holds up to your high standards, that your workplace and bottles are clean. To sum it up – you can be certain that you’re drinking exactly what you want to.
You get to meet new people
You get to be a part of a new community! You’ll find that people are eager to share their little secrets. You can learn from others’ mistakes and share their experience. Just join in a forum. Since all of the people there were newbies at one point, you’ll be surprised how helpful and nice they are.
Brewing will make you proud
It‘s a special feeling being able to brew your own beer. Imagine taking a sip of your new brew and realizing it’s perfect. You’re once step further from the consumer society; and a bit closer to your ancestors. Guaranteed, that’ll make you proud of your work.
The best thing about your beer? You get to share all that with your loved ones.
